Sales of the new $99 Apple TV are expected to top 1 million units this week, Apple said Dec. 21.
The device, which first went on sale in September, streams high-def movies and TV shows and can access Netflix, YouTube, Flickr and MobileMe. Apple said iTunes users are renting and purchasing more than 400,000 TV episodes and more than 150,000 movies a day on the device.
Using AirPlay, owners of the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch can stream music, videos and photos to Apple TV, and all those devices can also serve as a remote control for Apple TV.
