Apple TV is Set Up for Installing Applications

Developer Steve Troughton-Smith has discovered that the new Apple TV is set up for installing applications.

"You can definitely add an AppleTV to the provisioning portal, and if you give an app a UIDeviceFamily of 3 it will install on it when signed"

"The application definitely installs on the AppleTV, I used iPhone Explorer to verify"

"So, not only is the AppleTV set up for installing applications (of UIDeviceFamily 3), but the installation actually works"

It seems like only a matter of time until enterprising hackers figure out how to modify Lowtide to launch applications.
