Would You Buy An Apple Televison?

Posted by Matthew Snider with 2 Comments

There was a time that companies only made one product and made it well. With the overwhelming product success of many companies, including Apple, that idea has long been gone.

Our friends over at Apple (I can call them that because I run an Apple blog!) have come up with this fancy new device called a television and they think it will be all the rage!

I would think about it for sure, but I must say that my current Blu-ray player plays Blu-ray discs and streams Netflix. We shall see soon it seems. Announcement is rumored to be by the end of this year.

According to DailyTech

According to a source Apple plans to “blow Netflix and all those other guys away” by bundling Apple TV + iTunes inside physical television sets.  According to the source Apple is teaming up with a major supplier (our guess would be Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (SEO:005930)), to provide the physical televisions, which will be rebranded as Apple television sets.

So the real questions is this:

Would you purchase an Apple Television? A television set that would be built with an Apple TV and iTunes right in?

Is this just a fad, are they too late? Weigh in below in the comments section!

  1. I like Netflix way to much to switch to an Apple TV I think. They should make a deal with Netflix about streaming through them and then I might be tempted. Until then I am going to stik with my blue ray that streams netflix and allows me to rent movies via blockbuster online…

    • I have the hockey puck version of Apple TV and it has the Netflix app on it. I am with you Adam. I like Netflix too much as well. If iTunes can bring their rental pricing down… I might consider it. But right now $7.99/mo for Netflix and their growing library of TV shows is great!
