Exactly. Apple is forcing cellphone companies out of business and taking their profits. With the right content deal Apple could sell a compelling TV at a subsidised price with a two-year contract. If they built it people would come. But the content deal is key and Apple knows it. Steve Jobs basically said so himself at the D conference: There has been talk several times of Apple trying to get an all-you-eat TV package, but the cable companies who own the rights are clearly afraid to cut Apple that deal because they know Apple would own the market.

Who's going to subsidize a TV? The cable companies that you're trying to get rid of?

Aren't the cable companies and internet providers one and the same? They are where I live. (Rogers) You could eliminate cable tv, but you'll still be paying for internet. And when their cable revenues drop, internet prices will go up.

There is and never has been any credible reason for Apple to built its own HDTV.

The competition in TVs has always been fierce. For Apple to get into this makes no sense whatsoever. Apple's standards of fit and finish are so high that a full fledged TV would naturally cost more than the competition's cheap plastic boxes, which it would result in limited sales.

The reason is the experience. If Apple could provide people all the TV shows they want in an attractive monthly all-you-can-eat package along with subsidising the TV themselves people would buy it. Everyone? No. But a lot of people. Hanging a TV upon the wall with nothing attached to it and it doing everything you want it to without adding a box or an additional remote would go along way. The only reason you can't see that is because you're a geek. Ask your mother would she prefer that and she what she said. That experience would be superior in every way. If the content owners weren't holding all the cards Apple would have made that move already. The only way to provide an amazing Apple experience it to control everything. And the only way to control and simplify the whole thing it to have the TV control everything. It's that simple. End of.
HDMI between the box and the TV.
Ethernet or WiFi between the network and the box.
Why would it be anything else?
So including the power adapter, that's three (3) cables already, no?
Doesn’t HDMI 2 carry power? The Apple TV would only pull 10w.
Maybe I'm missing something here, but the Apple TV, if hard wired to the LAN will have three cables in total. The Power Adapter cable, the HDMI Cable, and of course the LAN Cable.
I am surprised ATV does not support Bluetooth earphones, for when you want it quiet...
