Oh hells yes.
I know stock splits are technically meaningless, but AAPL has been weighed down by completely meaningless negative sentiment. A psychological reset like this might just get things moving up to a reasonable valuation.
Will the patience last? What in the world are they talking about?
Wall Street already has has ZERO patience for Apple. They've been ridiculously punished for having the best balance sheet and only the slightest uncertainty about exactly how much growth to expect.

Then as more channels are signed on, they'll start competing with better availability of content, showing things as they air, not just after.
Hopefully Apple is trying to get some exclusivity deals. It would be sad if they did all the work in figuring out the business viability with these channels and...
APPL goes down on all news. On good news, it goes down a little, on neutral news it goes down a lot, and don't even ask what happens when there is bad news. AAPL is trading with bad sentiment right now. One day the tide will turn, but until now, all news is "bad" news.
I'm probably dreaming here, but how amazing would it be if the AppleTv were a full-on serious game console? Not just something to play casual iphone games, but straight-up xbox/playstation level stuff.

Between this and the Moto watch, there's a whole industry getting built around watching for Apple rumors and getting a decent product out based on the rumors before Apple does.
