, 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).

I already stream Pandora from my iPad directly to my Yamaha receiver through airplay; I could go through my Apple TV, but there's not need as my receiver has airplay built in.

So I don't understand what this article is blathering about.
