So when Apple finally announces a real Apple TV, one with a TV screen, what are we thinking that they will announce?
All streaming, or linkage with content providers?
I keep wondering if maybe they'll do some deal with AT&T (U-Verse) and/or Verizon (FiOS), similar to their cellular arrangement, where they pass through hardware, but then I wonder if AT&T and Verizon would consider that as losing their hardware control? Or maybe they could view it as helping them gain market share?
A deal with DirecTV would give them true national coverage, but based on Mike White's comments a while ago, it doesn't appear that would happen.
Interesting times ahead, curious what others think.
