On Wednesday, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced that the company would be adding YouTube support to its Apple TV device via a free software update available in mid-June.
According to Macworld News, users will be able to select YouTube from the Apple TV’s main menu, then browse through content from the YouTube web site. The company stated that it would gradually add the most current and popular YouTube content over time until the entire catalog was offered this fall. The content will be gradually converted via Apple’s supported H.264 video codec.
All content uploaded from June on will be automatically encoded under the H.264 protocol, making it compatible with the Apple TV.
In an anticipated move, Apple also announced that it would be offering a larger hard drive as a build-to-order option through the Apple Store. A new configuration will include a 160 gigabyte hard drive, which will be four times the capacity of the current hard drive.
The 160 gigabyte configuration retails for US$399.00.
