MacService announces Apple TV 160GB storage upgrade program

Apple StoreMacService introduces a new storage upgrade service for the newly released Apple TV media controller. For as little as $195 the internal storage capacity can be increased to 160GB, allowing over 200 hours of video, 36,000 songs, or 100,000 photos to be stored on the AppleTV. You can now store all of your movies, music and pictures on your Apple TV without having to stream it from you computer. All pricing includes a new hard drive, professional installation, roundtrip shipping and data transfer.

How it works- MacService sends a courier to your location to retrieve your Apple TV. Once it arrives back at MacService, a certified technician installs the new drive and transfers the data over from your old drive. After the upgrade is completed, your Apple TV is tested and sent back to you, along with your old drive. All upgrades are completed within 24 hours of arrival.

MacService is a leading provider of mail-in repairs and upgrades for Mac and PC laptop computers.

  1. I think Apple wants a cheep box for starters to open up the market. That is why they don’t have a 160 gig box. Give it one generation and then every $TV is going to be 100+ gigs and there will be 3 flavors with internet video streaming and everything.

    wait one gen.

  6. But why upgrade? I just purchased my apple TV yesterday. It streams flawlessly. I can access all of the movies I’ve already got on my computer at home. There’s no need to do an internal upgrade, just stream your content.

    The only hitch I found is I couldn’t figure out how to stream my photos. So, I sync’d the photos, and then I stream the music, movies, and TV shows.

    Unless I’m missing something, there is no need to upgrade the internal HD on an apple TV.
