Oh give me a ******* break. You know its going to be expensive as hell with a hefty apple tax on it and a horrible interface. Lemme guess, you're remote will have 4 buttons on it.
And who the **** pays 1199 for a 40" TV? I got my 36" for my bedroom for $349.

It is funny that people are gawking about this assumed price on a non existing tv. But, anyways I would have to think 2000$ would be a low ball number if apple made a tv. I mean look at how much they charge for an external display. Plus If they did it, I would imagine it would be top of the line materials, and probably a OLED screen just to top it off. I would bet 2k would get you 32 inch with prices ranging up to 6k for larger sets.
Those of you that have commented thinking 2000K will get you the best tv on the market, are either to young or to poor to realize there is a whole other world of very high end electronics out there that you won't see in walmart or best buy.
I can see it already you will have a choice of two colors, black or silver brushed aluminum. They will be a tv with apple tv built in, they will come with a rather simplistic remote because the intent will be to use your idevice to control it and stream to.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Sweet...When i first heard of AppleTV, i was a little disappointed to find out it was a glorified DVR. i think it would be pretty cool to have a 50" touch screen TV running on iOS.

who writes these stupid rumors? lol. 50" panels are plasma. lcd are 55". mass producing a new size panel is going to be expensive. most of the major brand name get all their panels from the same factory. many people dont upgrade tv every year there is a refresh of a new model. tv models drop prices by hundreds or thousands. That is something apple will never do. you be lucky to get $100 price drop. enjoy your apple 720p content through your 50+ screen. lol

$2000 can get you an extremely high end TV btw.
Top of the line materials? Maybe the casing for the display, but the actual display would simply come from Samsung or LG like past/current Cinema & iMac displays. It would the same as wrapping a normal priced samsung 32" in aluminium or other "top of the line" materials and adding an extra zero to the price tag.
I can see it now, $2000 for AppleTV, then the next year they bring out AppleTV2 with...wait for it....the feature of channel 2. Oh and no model will support HDMI.

hdmi will come on the 3rd gen model LOL

Second it's just a stock photo with ATV photo shopped on to the screen and not even a prototype so saying you can't wall mount it again another pointless comment.
Every one who is writing it off before it's even been made let alone confirmed by Apple, and as for the price apple is a premium brand and it's prices reflect just that a premium, if people think it wont sell then they need to look at the TV market a little harder as bang and olufsen seam to be doing well for them selfs selling 46" LCD's for 7.5K a pop!

All I want is for my tv to be a display.
I still need room for the 360 and ps3. The DVR is a must to record hockey, football and other shows.
I didn't spend thousands on speakers to listen to them with tv quality sounds.
I would find it hard to believe apple would provide the sound range/depth of a quality cut bluray.
For some it will be perfect, others they will buy it because it comes in an apple box.
Apple surely won't short itself on the msrp.
However this might be good in that it could drive down the prices on other displays

And as for tv's I think I'll stick with my drop down cinema screen with hi-def projector. All costing a sweet 3k and about 1mm thin

If it has an accelerometer, gyroscope and gps I'd buy it. Otherwise it's more than I'd be willing to spend on a tv, regardless of the features. But I'm quite certain they would have no problem selling a television at that price point concidering that's what their desktops go for. And in a year or so from now who knows what features this may have. Probably gaming capabilities with your iPhone or iPad as a contoler, airplay in 7.1 surround and just an overall cleaner setup without the clutter of wires and remotes. Not that it's a huge deal for most but certainly a selling point for those who can afford it.

Do you normally pick up your TV, swing it from side to side and tilt it up and down?
What good are any of those technologies for something that is in a fixed position unless you're moving house or moving a TV to another room.
You still would need 7 external speakers and a subwoofer for 7.1 surround sound.
Great first post though

As for the 7.1 surround I was actually thinking about external wireless "airplay" speakers as opposed to running wires throughout my living room. Again, not a deal breaker but would definitely be a cleaner install, as long as sound quality does not suffer.
