    Totally agree. A sizeable market was virtually handed to Apple, but they did nothing. Missed out on a big opportunity. It was a no-brainer decision. 

    Guess you missed the part where Apple doesn't own the content rights. They have to have permission and sometimes those folks don't want to play ball. So apple can't do something if they have no rights to the items

    There have already been several media devices created to "challenge" Apple and Amazon's will just be another on the pile. I am curious to see where Apple takes the set-top box though, lots of rumors going on.

    I'd buy one since ATV doesn't support it.

    Unfortunately I didn't indicate that I was referring to an Apple TV App Store with support for peripherals. Contents deals and channels that seems to be getting the focus means absolutely nothing to anyone outside of the US.
