Best Buy To Carry Apple TV Starting Tuesday
Putting to rest a tradition of excluding most Apple products, Best Buy on Tuesday will begin carrying the new Apple TV.
The device, a set-top box that can stream iPod content onto any high-definition widescreen TV, had previously been sold only at Apple stores. It will be available at other retail outlets in April.
Best Buy has traditionally not carried many Apple products, other than iPods. But that has begun to change recently, with displays of various Mac Powerbooks, and now with Apple TV, which retails for $299. The latter product began shipping last week; there is no official timetable for when it will be available at other retail outlets.
