The Apple TV Update

Today Apple CEO Tim Cook announced that the latest software update for the box's TVOS operating system, version 9.2, is now available for download.

So what upgrades can Apple TV owners expect? As the beta releases indicated, they mostly revolve around making the device easier to use.

Why you need fibre to use the new Apple TV

The newest version of Apple TV releases in October, and it’s yet another signal that the future of home entertainment lies in real-time, high-definition streaming over the Internet. In fact, within the year Apple is even planning to launch its own web TV service to compete with cable TV providers, offering a small bundle of essential channels that will be accessible through—you guessed it—Apple TV’s newest box.

How to bring your community into the fibre future

Want to stream high-def Apple TV to your heart’s content? Tired of constant buffering on Netflix? Sick of gamer lag on PlayStation or Xbox Live? You need fibre optic Internet.

Unfortunately you can’t just call up the cable guy—whether he’s a friend or super-creepy foe—and ask him to tap into existing telephone or TV cables to get it. Fibre optic networks move massive amounts of data by transmitting beams of pure light, instead of electricity. That means an entirely new infrastructure is needed to bring the near unlimited data-capacity of fibre networks to new communities.

But building that new fibre optic network is a major undertaking. Every kilometre has to be carefully planned in coordination with city planners. The new network has to fit in seamlessly with the existing utilities infrastructure. It’s a painstaking and costly process. And once the exhaustive planning phase is complete, an equally methodical construction phase begins, in which thousands of kilometres of fibre optic cable are put down and gridded up together, section by section.
