    So Tim Cook said it will go on sale Monday- Has anyone heard anything about timing? Like will this be the usual- get up at 3am eastern?

    I would assume to based on previous launches. The question is am I willing to get up at 3am to order an AppleTV? I'm interested to see what demand is going to be.

    I'm torn wondering if this is going to be an iPhone-like launch where we are going to see back orders. I would think that Apple would want ample inventory going into the holiday season. I might just take my chances. I can wait much longer for a new AppleTV than I can for a new iPhone

    I doubt it, but of course, that's just my personal opinion.

    My thought as well. I think this is going to be more of a gradual adoption.

    So are you both saying roll the dice and get up at 5:30 and order?

    I don't think it's going to be a race like it is for iPhone releases so I think you'll be fine at 5:30. I'll be really surprised to see supply shortages.

    That being said, you cannot blame me if you wake up at 5:30 and it's completely sold out.

    Sure I can. It's all about having a scapegoat

    I get up at 5am CST so I might just wait. Since it's been years I'm sure a lot of people will want to get it but I don't think all Apple users have an Apple TV. In fact a co worker doesn't but he has an iPhone 6.

    I've been up all night. I didn't stay up for the tv. I just keep vampire hours. I'm going to bed soon. But I'll check at 12pm CST. Apple loves doing things at 10am PST. I hope I don't have to stalk the store all day.

    All, what are the thoughts here on the Free Shipping (US), do you think even though showing Nov 2 - 4 that Apple will get these out on launch day (Oct 30) as they have in the past or think that this time this really is the date (Nov 2 - 4) and ONLY way to get on launch day (other than pickup as and when that becomes an option) is to pay for upgraded shipping ? Thanks

    I have been waiting since they announced the new Apple TV to order one so I was *very* impatient and used next day shipping. I went back and forth because I would really like to get it before the weekend to play with it but there is no guarantee it will ship early enough. I say unless you really want to get it on Friday (maybe) just pick the free shipping and save the money.

    I hope it comes on Friday... Upgraded shipping doesnt have it as a definite for the 30th anyway..

    Too soon after purchasing the 6s Plus. I'll wait a while. Too many expenditures lately.
