    Some new news has just been revealed surrounding the new Apple TV that is said to be revamped tomorrow. The news comes from Bloomberg Businessweek in the form of Netflix streaming.

    The news says that Netflix streaming will be brought to the iTV device and revealed tomorrow at the special event. It is also said that Apple are in the talks with News Cops about bringing Tv rentals from networks including FOX for 99 Cents. Apple are also talking to CBS and to ABC-parent company Disney.

    This, however would be the first time Apple have preloaded their own device with services that actually compete with their own iTunes. With that said, NetFlix is also available on the Appstore for the iPad and recently for the iPhone, so it wouldn't be out of the question, especially since Apple want this iTV to sell and leverage the momentum of the device.

    Many people may just buy this $99 iTV just for Netflix, and thats when they will start to use Apples other offerings such as the Apps, Movie rentals and other purchased content...well we will see what happens tomorrow.

    Yh I Doubt it will be up for sale straight away, because most people who would want one will be at the event anyways and most people will be watching the live stream like "WTF!"

    The last thing that was released on the same day it was announced was the Sega Saturn back in 1995

    Most likely it will be unveiled at the event and they will have demo models at the event for people to play with and for the media to hype up.
