A little more than a month after Apple opened it’s iTunes Store here in the Philippines, they are coming up again this time, with the release of Apple TV.
The Apple TV, which appeared as early as August 14, sells for P4,990 at the Apple Online Store and ships in 3-5 business days and as usual, you get free shipping for orders over P3,000.
Another thing that I noticed new to the online store is that you can now receive SMS notifications for your item when in transit. Simply include your phone number when checking out to receive notifications. SMS notifications will be sent between 8 AM to 9 PM
Lastly, there’s a rumor that Apple will soon sell iTunes Gift Cards for use in the Philippine iTunes Store. If this would turn out to be true, then it’s another plus for Apple as more people would now be able to purchase content at iTunes because as everyone knows, signing up for a credit card is a pain.
A guy from Podworx told me that Apple TV and PH iTunes Gift cards will arrive soon :)— Jam Ancheta (@JamAncheta) August 18, 2012
When asked for a comment, however, Apple simply replied…
“Apple does not comment on rumour or speculation.”
