You can now order your fourth-gen Apple TV through Best Buy and have it available come Wednesday, November 4th.
Users can now preorder both the 32-gigabyte and 64-gigabyte variants of the new Apple TV from Best Buy, priced at US$149.99 and US$199.99, respectively. The retailer lists the product’s release date as Nov. 4, and it will be available for in-store pick up that same day.
Apple also began taking preorders for the device on Monday and free orders are scheduled to deliver between Nov. 2 and Nov. 4. Customers who opt for expedited shipping were given a delivery window between this Friday, Oct. 30, and Nov. 3.
Apple had initially stated that the fourth-gen Apple TV would arrive in October, although it won’t arrive until November.
Apple has not announced retail availability of the new Apple TV in its own stores, but a Nov. 4 launch at Best Buy would suggest that the new set-top box will also arrive in Apple’s own stores next week.
The new Apple TV features an A8 system-on-a-chip, as well as Siri voice control with deep search functionality. It also includes a dedicated App Store for installing third-party apps. Apple began accepting app submissions last week, and also submitted a golden master of its new tvOS to developers.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
