One of the key new features in iOS 4.2 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad is the ability to stream media from a mobile device to an Apple TV set-top-box. There’s just one problem: out of the box the Apple TV doesn’t support that feature. That’s why Apple is rolling out an updated for the Apple TV today at the same time as it’s pushing out iOS 4.2 to users.

Apple TV 4.1 supports AirPlay which lets users stream photos, music, and movies over a home network.

According to MacWorld, the new Apple TV also includes a feature called VoiceOver. This makes it easier for visually impaired people to use the Apple TV, as it reads menus and other information out loud to you.

MacWorld shot a video of VoiceOver in action, which you can check out after the break.
