Apple [AAPL] has changed its iTunes Store terms and conditions, and the new terms and conditions mention a forthcoming software update to Apple TV.
It is not clear as yet whether this will be a software update only, or whether we will see a new model Apple TV launch at the same time.
The Apple TV 3.0 software update will bring support for iTunes LP and iTunes Extra products, which will deliver bonus materials for movies, similar to extras found on DVDs.
“iTunes LP and iTunes Extras Products are usable only on computers with iTunes 9 or higher and Apple TV with software version 3.0 or higher.”
There is no word on when the Apple TV 3.0 software update will be released as yet.
