Can Apple Revolutionize cableTV?
If you have watched any news sites, or television news today you have heard that Apple is in talks with television content providers. Could apple be planning on bringing the Apple experience to the television? Could they be doing it to prove to Google that a smart tv can be made if it is made correctly? I think Apple will do very well if they make it similar to the AppleTV that has been released in the past, but if they are thinking about bringing a Apple experience as a hardware addon they will do fine, but if they get into the television hardware market they will not do so well. As everyone knows the Apple hardware is generally pretty pricey. You will always have your devotee’s who will run out and buy one on the first day, but they will be in the ball park of 1500-2500 dollars ( this is my guess).
My question to you, would you spend 1500+ on a smart TV? It may be happening sooner than you think as Apple has one a patent in the cable tv area of expertise today. (PatentlyApple)
