Calls to New York- and San Francisco-area Apple stores confirmed that the box, which is meant to deliver content between a TV and a PC, is so far only available online. A San Francisco Apple store employee said they expect to have Apple TV "any day now."

First announced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in September under the name iTV, CEO Steve Jobs formally unveiled the device as Apple TV at Macworld in January. He announced then that it would be available February. At the end of last month Apple acknowledged that the product would be delayed until mid-March, but did not specify the reason.
