Applications Can Be Installed on Apple TV

As it turns out, developer Steven Troughton-Smith has discovered that users can install applications to the newly launched second generation Apple TV, though it won’t be possible to run those applications without a launcher first. Hopefully, until Apple launches an official App Store for Apple TV, the jailbreak community can create a launcher and some compelling apps for the living room box, especially in light of Google’s push for Google TV. If Apple is able to replicate its gaming success with a launch of an Apple TV App Store in the way that the company had been successful with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, Apple TV could emerge as more than just a “hobby” for the Cupertino, California consumer electronics maker and Apple TV could be a serious challenger to gaming consoles from Sony, Nintendo, and Microsoft.
