For all the web developers: "New templates using XML and Javascript are also available as a framework for tvOS apps, so you can use predefined layouts and Javascript APIs to quickly create beautiful apps ideal for streaming media."

The new Apple TV looks awesome. It's running tvOS, has a new remote with touch surface and Siri-support, and has universal search so you can easily search through all your shows. They've also added some cool gaming features.

@erictwillis We're starting our app build right now. Can't wait.

@odower Very cool app - can't wait to check it out more.

AppleTV has had a big impact on my habits. I've now lived without mainstream TV channels for 3+ years. I'm excited by this update. I'm guessing older gen 3 Apple TVs will not be upgradable to the new OS

@paul_s_kemp same here ;:)
Filip Mares@filipmares · Engineering, Skype
@paul_s_kemp unlikely to get the update

@filipmares I don't think there's any update, because of the new hardware. The device looked significantly bigger so I guess the others are just legacy
Sam Matrouh@samatrouh · Founder of Dunnnk
@paul_s_kemp going through the developers docs and it mentions that older gens aren't supported. :-(
Braden Hamm@bradenhamm · Designer / Founder Gumwall.com
@samatrouh downvote :( but I'm not too sad since I'm upgrading anyway. I was just hoping I could keep using the old one for another TV.
Lachlan Campbell@lachlanjc · Code, apps, design, high school.
@samatrouh they couldn't be upgraded. Without gestures, Siri, etc from the new remote, it wouldn't work 😁

I was really hoping for a find my remote feature. Either a button on the ATV box or using iPhone -- anyone else?
Ilyas Hassani@ilyashassani · App Entrepreneur
@daniellevine The Remote is Bluetooth , so yes you can use your phone think
Paul unr Morrison@iamunr · Web Developer, Loot Market
@daniellevine Well... we can try to write an app for that now? :P

I actually use my Roku box more than my Apple TV for Netflix, Amazon, Rdio, and Pandora. I'm not sure this upgrade will win me over.

@chrismessina of course there're lots of great boxes already. But the beauty is in the integrations with other iDevices, and the App Store I guess :)
Braden Hamm@bradenhamm · Designer / Founder Gumwall.com
@chrismessina Do you use it for games?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · 🏆 PH Community Member of the Year!
@bradenhamm I don't, no. But I do use my iDevices for casual gaming.
Braden Hamm@bradenhamm · Designer / Founder Gumwall.com
@chrismessina Is that because you're not into games, or you just don't like that method of playing games. I'm asking because it seems like I'll use it a lot with the new Apple TV, for myself and my kids, but maybe it won't be as fun in practice?
Chris Messina@chrismessina · 🏆 PH Community Member of the Year!
@bradenhamm mostly a matter of time. I'm sure the kids would enjoy App Store games on tvOS.
