The redesign Apple TV supports NetFlix, Youtube and HD and TV Show rentals.

Steve Jobs is having another go at Apple TV, with a redesigned new box launched at yesterday’s event.

The new Apple TV is one-quarter the size of its predecessor, with a sleek, simple black look. The device hosts HDMI, optical audio, and ethernet ports on its rear end, with WiFi b/g/n built-in.

Apple TV will provide Netflix, YouTube, Flickr, Podcast and MobileMe streaming along with iTunes rentals. HD movies rented from the iTunes store will cost $4.99, and HDTV shows from ABC, Fox, Disney Channcel, and BBC America will be available for $0.99 per episode.

Users will also be able to stream videos from their iPads, iPod Touches and iPhone using the included AirPlay app.

The device will retail for $99 with initial launch in five countries.
