Apple Entering The Television Market?

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
Ive heard rumors that Apple might be entering the LCD TV market as early as this summer. With Apple long overdue for an overhaul of all of their monitors, it makes sense that Apple might have something up their sleeve in regards to full LCD televisions.



Obviously their angle would be to include AppleTV in their televisions, as one integrated unit since "no one likes set top boxes."



Has anyone heard anything regarding this rumor? Thanks!

    Actually, I think Robert X Cringley has been suggesting this for about a year now.

    sure,

    you also said that AppleTV 2.0 would have a DVD on it. I guess you got it right.

    No I said it should. There's a difference. Besides, in this new Apple TV there are no hardware changes. It's merely a software update disguised as a new product.

    Seriously, I hope they do, and do it sometime soon. I'd love to have everything in my home be Apples.

    See Ireland,

    It's not only me. Many people here know what you are all about.



    You were so certain that Steve would add a DVD player on AppleTV. You started a thread, you attacked me so many times, etc.

    here to refresh your memory:

    Sorry brother, I don't think is happening, and if even becomes reality down the road, I am man enough to accept it and say that I am wrong. I guess the same cannot be said about you.

    In the article Ireland asks if it would make sense to include a DVD player, not that they would definitely be putting one in. Sorry Gugy, you've just proved yourself incorrect.
