    Tv shows and the music icloud have been added here in Canada . Also the box seems a lot more stable and streaming is fine now. Love the apple tv but Roku is coming in 2012  and Hulu Plus will be a big challenge due to its price . I wish apple tv would add crackle and hulu plus and Nba here in Canada.
