Apple TV launch hit with delays

updated 10:30 am EDT, Fri September 24, 2010

Shipments postponed

Deliveries of the new Apple TV are being pushed back, according to notifications received by MacNN and other parties. The set-top was originally scheduled to ship by the end of September, but Apple now says that due to a "delay," it "may have not been able to meet our [Apple's] delivery commitment." Refunds are being issued for shipping costs in some cases.

Only earlier this week people were reportedly being debited for the price of an Apple TV, suggesting that the device was finally ready to ship. Still in question is how long the current delay will last. While shipments could be postponed by just a few days, they could also be displaced into sometime in October.

    Free shipping

    I don't think Apple --always-- ships items for free. However, when I ordered my Apple TV, there was no shipping charge (just tax).
