Apple upgrades its set top player

Apple this week announced that its Apple TV set top video player will receive an upgrade in both hardware and software. When it was initially launched, the Apple TV contained a relatively small 40GB hard drive for storing video and music content locally. Despite no major concerns over its size, Apple is now offering a 160GB version of the Apple TV that will sell alongside the original for $399 USD.

Coming mid-June, Apple will also be introducing Apple TV integration with YouTube. Apple said that the Apple TV will wirelessly stream videos directly from YouTube. The Apple TV interface will receive a minor user interface update to allow viewers to search for YouTube videos directly and browse through them without using the actual YouTube website.

According to Apple's press release:
Thousands of the most current and popular YouTube videos will be available on Apple TV at launch in mid-June, with YouTube adding thousands more each week until the full YouTube catalog is available this fall. With Apple TV’s stunning interface and simple Apple Remote, users can easily navigate through YouTube’s familiar video browsing categories or search for specific videos.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs noted that using the Apple TV, YouTube videos are now easily available without a computer. "This is the first time users can easily browse, find and watch YouTube videos right from their living room couch, and it's really, really fun," Jobs said.

The new 160GB Apple TV is available today and the YouTube integration will be available mid-June.
