After launching online orders for its fourth-generation Apple TV, Apple will start selling the new set-top box at its retail stores on Friday, October 30, 9to5Mac learned from sources close to the matter.
In addition to sales via the Apple Online Store and company-owned retail stores, the new Apple TV is listed for pre-order at other resellers like Best Buy and B&H.
“Apple retail employees say that stores are beginning to receive shipments to sell at the end of this week, while stores will be re-organized overnight on Thursday to promote the new Apple TV in stores on Friday,” wrote the publication.
As for other sales channels, Best Buy currently has both 32GB ($149) and 64GB ($199) models available for pre-order, with store inventory expected November 4. The electronics retailer is also offering a two-year AppleCare plan for $29.
