Will the Apple TV App be updated, too, or is it completely separate from the other implementations?

-----


The AppleTV app doesn't use webkit; it's the standard, very limited AppleTV UI kit. This is why it's less terrible than most Netflix clients; less rope to hang themselves.

They did manage to make it slightly awful within the constraints of the model, though; see the mechanism used for moving between seasons of a TV show.

That and the size 10 pixel font they use for everything.

Here's am article on the Apple TV UI framework. It's called Back Row

Whoops! Forgot the actual link. Shouldn't be commenting when I'm half asleep I guess

It will likely stay the same. I can't see what in the Apple TV app would use WebKit since it uses the exact same controls as the rest of the Apple TV. And honestly, I hope it stays the same because I think the ATV app is so much better than the Xbox/PS3/iPad apps... It's simple, doesn't bother me by autoplaying the next episode etc.

> It's simple, doesn't bother me by autoplaying the next episode etc.

Amusing since that's generally the biggest complaint about the AppleTV version vs. the others.

-----


That's my complaint on Roku as well. When I'm doing housework, I like to have the TV on in the background. Having to stop every 22 minutes to play the next episode breaks my flow.

-----


No.

The Apple TV will keep its current look and feature set

Thank goodness. That autoplay an episode after the last one ends that is on the web client and 360 client is truly awful. The lack of that "feature" is part of why I bought a second AppleTV.

Pen is also a very nice, unobtrusive alternative: http://sofish.github.io/pen/

If you use Rails, also have a look at the Gem I just published for it: https://github.com/neowork/pen
