New Apple TV Heavily Relies on Voice Search for Customized Experience, Starts at $149


Apple announced a major update for its Apple TV hardware at its keynote earlier today, and Siri's Voice Search is a cornerstone of its design. Borrowing a concept from set-top boxes such as TiVo, Apple's Universal Search will find your favorite movies or TV shows across Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, HBO, and other sources. Siri is activated using a button on the new Bluetooth remote, which features both a touch interface and physical buttons for volume, play, and other functions. As expected, the New Apple TV will include VoiceOver support, as confirmed by iMore's Rene Ritchie. The new Apple TV starts at $149 with 32GB of storage and will be available in late October.
