Best Buy to sell Apple TV box

Posted by Mark Raby

Minneapolis (MN) - Though it is still hesitant about selling Apple computers and software, Best Buy has announced that it will begin selling the Apple TV later this week.

With the exception of a few test stores, the iPod is the only Apple product that Best Buy carries.  As part of a move to increase its partnership with Apple, the Minneapolis-based retailer will begin selling the iTunes-to-TV streaming device this Tuesday, a couple weeks ahead of most other retailers.

Best Buy is currently re-evaulating its possibilities with Apple and has begun a test program at select stores to sell Mac computers and applications.

The Apple TV went on sale last week though Apple's online store and most of its official retail locations.  It retails for about $300.
