Though many were suspicious that it would move off the shelf, Apple announced today that Apple TV will sell over one million units by the end of this week. According to the press release, iTunes users purchase 400,000 TV episodes and over 150,000 movies per day, though how many of those end up being watched through Apple TV was not specified. Some have been skeptical about the $99 device that allows you to stream iTunes, Netflix and other Web shows onto your television,saying that it is nothing more than a glorified app. However, the ease of use, price and size of the device have made some people fans, especially since you can move shows you are watching on your computer, iPad or iPod onto your TV via the AirPlay feature, which is perfect for the Mac user that must have everything the company releases.
