Apple continued its product-a-week pace for 2008 earlier this week by releasing the Apple TV software update promised at Macworld Expo. And so, in this Macworld Video, I dive right into the new software, giving you an overview of what to expect as well as a tour of the new interface.

The feature highlight of this software update is the addition of the ability to buy media and rent movies from the iTunes Store directly from the Apple TV. Rest assured, we explore that aspect, too.
