After being pulled yesterday, the latest Apple TV update is available once again. The version 6.0 software adds the ability to stream songs from iTunes Radio and purchase music directly from the iTunes Music Store. The update also allows users to sync podcasts and stream videos purchased from iTunes — rather than having to download video to the set-top box before watching it. Apple halted the update on Sunday after a small number of users found missing content and some of the hockey puck-sized boxes were bricked. So far the update seems to be bug free.
