MG Siegler, a venture capitalist and writer for TechCrunch, says that Apple will release new Apple TV hardware next month.
Earlier today, Siegler tweeted:
I guess those excited about a software refresh in a week are gonna be *really* excited when new Apple TV hardware is unveiled next month.

His tweet follows a report from AllThingsD that says new Apple TV software is coming September 18th.
9to5Mac also corroborated reports of new hardware.
We’ve independently heard of Apple working on both a full-fledged TV set and a revamped set-top-box that is similar in form-factor to the current model. But no matter the hardware design, we have been consistently hearing from our sources that Apple is thoroughly testing Xbox Kinect-like motion sensors for future TV-related products. When Apple plans to release motion-controlled TVs, however, is uncertain.
Siegler has previously mentioned that “the interaction with it could be the interesting thing”.
