News: iTunes Festival Popping Up on Apple TV Early
As reported by Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac, it seems Apple wanted to make sure everyone had their iTunes Festival app before September 1. iTunes Festival is an annual music festival at London’s Roundhouse. Just like last year, the festival is streamed live and on-demand via an iOS app, iTunes, or the Apple TV. If it’s not appearing right away, the Apple TV just needs a restart, much like the Hulu Plus update last month.
More info on the iTunes Festival from Apple:
The iTunes Festival is coming back in September 2012. We’re inviting more than 60 artists to perform 30 consecutive nights of brilliant live music at the Roundhouse in London. Be sure to check back—we’re adding new artists to the line-up on a regular basis. Every ticket to the iTunes Festival is free—you can apply to win tickets to any performance.
If you can’t make the gig, watch the shows live or view them afterwards for a limited time on your computer with iTunes, or on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with the iTunes Festival app. To watch on your big screen, use Apple TV and click iTunes Festival from the main menu, or use Airplay to stream gigs wirelessly via the app.
