Apple TV 2.0 1The newly revamped, reduced-in-price Apple TV set-top is out in stores after a short delay, enabling standard and Hi-Def iTunes movie rentals to be viewed on the big plasma in your living room.

Standard def movies rent for $3.99 for new releases and $2.99 for library titles. HD movies (1280 x 720) cost $4.99/$3.99.

The user interface allows you to browse through thumbnail images of available titles from most of the major studios and start watching them within seconds (provided you enjoy a broadband connection exceeding 6 MB/second.)
