Apple TV Priced Under $200, Available in October.

The Apple rumor mill is currently abuzz with chatter about a revamped Apple TV, and thanks to a new report from 9to5Mac, we’re getting a better sense of what to expect.

We’re expecting to see a new Apple TV at the company’s event on September 9th, and it looks like the device will have a bump in price to accompany its list of rumored new features. 9to5Mac reports that the next-generation Apple TV will cost between $149 and $199 — a sizable jump from its current price of $69, and the first time the device will cost more than $100 in five years.Casual entertainment fans looking to grab an Apple TV should probably think about doing so quickly, because a new version of the set-top box is slated for release September 9, and it isn’t going to be cheap.While it remains unclear which channels will come included with the inevitable Apple TV streaming service, competitor Sling TV includes about 20 channels for $20 per month.

If that price range is what we’ll see next Wednesday, it would make an even bigger gap between Apple’s streaming box and cheap competitors offering streaming sticks. The buzz is getting louder on Apple’s (AAPL) September 9 showcase of its next generation TV set top box with news the vendor will price the unit up to three times what it charges for the discounted older model. The fourth-generation “Apple TV” reportedly will be priced below the $200 mark, and it is on the way to become available in October to the customers.

This person will help Apple beef up Siri’s Apple Music chops, including “working with [a] localization team to support the Siri experience in multiple languages.” The best part about using Siri with Apple Music is you don’t even have to have the app open to get Siri started. Except that even if the Roku did come with a built-in tuner, it still couldn’t run iPad-class apps and games completely outclassing anything available on anyone’s “Smart TV” platform, nor are these devices usually running with first rate browsers, email or anything else. It’s also rumored that Apple’s latest TV box could come with App Store support and Siri — which would make a lot of sense considering Apple’s latest event invitation.

According to a Bloomberg report, Apple is still working on securing deals with content providers that would give traditional cable companies a serious run for their money.
