Apple TV ship date pushed back to mid-March

Expected to ship by the end of February, Apple on Monday said that Apple TV will be delayed for a couple of weeks.

“Wrapping up Apple TV is taking a few weeks longer than we projected, and we now expect to begin shipments mid-March,” an Apple spokesperson told Macworld .

Steve Jobs introduced Apple TV during his Macworld Expo keynote last month in San Francisco. Apple TV features connections for USB 2, Ethernet, HDMI, component video, and optical audio connections. The device also supports three popular 802.11 wireless standards — 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n — allowing users to wirelessly stream content from Macs or PCs running iTunes 7 to a TV.

Apple TV will cost $299 when it ships.
