Apple TV release date is October 1?
Right after the news that the new Apple TV runs iOS, a tipster sent in a note saying the new Apple TV will be officially released on October 1 and that demo units will be setup in Apple Store locations for the same date.
We generally ignore these kinds of emails as nothing but unsubstantiated rumors, but October 1 coincides with the “2-4 week” ship date listed on Apple’s online store so it doesn’t seem that far fetched. We’ll find out in a few short weeks!
Update: Many early buyers have received shipment notices of their Apple TV, and they are scheduled to be delivered by October 1.
