, Apple TV will get a software update on September 18. Not much is known about the changes that will occur, but one thing for sure is that its AirPlay system will have new capabilities.
AirPlay originally only let users purchase content from Apple's iTunes store and play it on a TV from there. But with the new update, users can have the content they bought play on other people's Apple TV boxes directly from the cloud.
In other words, a user can play the content they own on an Apple TV box that they don't own using the cloud (AirPlay).
Some expected to hear more about Apple TV hardware and software at the big

It's not like anyone actually expects this site to get their facts straight but even five minutes at Apple's website would have set you straight on what AirPlay and its capabilities are.
