Last week, Apple TV sold out across numerous websites. In a bizarre turn of events, Apple’s hobby is being pulled from big-box retailers physical and online stores as well. You must be wondering why? So are we.
Wal-Mart and Best Buy are not even listing the Apple TV on their websites. Amazon has also stopped selling it. Disappearance of Apple TV all of a sudden must be confusing many as Apple recently added a new feature of recommending movies and TV shows to users.
Physical stores across United States do not have it in their stock.
Apple Insider contacted Best Buy to find out more but the employee receiving the call said that he was not allowed to talk about this issue.
“At this point in time, it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting [the Apple TV] back,” the representative said after performing an inventory check.
The Apple TV’s disappearance from retail stores should not be seen as a surprise because Apple usually constrains the supply of products that they are about to refresh. However, the Apple TV is in a unique position considering Tim Cooks recent comments about something bigger possibly evolving from the platform and the incredible buzz surrounding a possible Apple HDTV.
If rumors are to be believed, seems like Apple is going make a big impact with the release of refreshed Apple TV, Apple HDTV, iPad 3 and iPhone 5.
