"Today I received the Apple TV and as we promised, here is the unboxing video of the device. In this video I unboxed it and had it installed on my HDTV in less than 15 minutes, including dusting off the furniture and taking an older DVD/VCR combo player out to free up a HDMI port on my TV."
The hardest part of the setup may be peeling the protective film off the side of the new hockey puck-sized AppleTV. Plug in an HDMI cable to connect to a TV, power cable (no brick!), wired ethernet (if you choose to connect this way), and it boots. Select a language, your wireless network if you're un-wired, set up sharing with an iTunes computer, and you're done. From the internet you get a choice of streamed Netflix, YouTube, Podcasts, MobileMe, Flickr, Radio, but no Hulu. I heard a good description: an iPod for your TV. I can't wait to see what the future holds for this AppleTV iteration!
