As we reported earlier, Apple has announced that sometime today we will finally see the much anticipated iOS 4.2 update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and what's more -- Apple TV should be getting 4.2 today as well.

What everyone is anticipating is the use of AirPlay, which was probably a big selling point for most buyers of the new Apple TV. Now any iOS 4.2 equipped device will be able to send videos, audio, and photos to their big TV screen.

VoiceOver is also making its way to Apple TV with this update and can be turned on in the accessibility menu. This new feature will read menu items to users and can also read information like episode/movie descriptions to users as well.

Keep an eye out for Apple TV 4.2 today while you are anxiously awaiting iOS 4.2 for your other devices. Let us know when you see it and how AirPlay and VoiceOver are working out for you in the comments section below. And if you need help or just want to chat, head on over to our Apple TV Forum!
