Time Warner Chief Speculates on Apple HDTV
With analysts sounding increasingly more certain that the Apple HDTV is coming, a growing number of media industry heavyweights are beginning to sound just as confident about the chances of Apple releasing a new product for consumers' living rooms.
Today at Business Insider's IGNITION conference, the CEO of Time Warner Jeffrey Bewkes exposed himself as one of the biggest cheerleaders for Apple's much-rumored HDTV. In fact, he outright says he hopes it happens - and soon.
"They bring good interface and navigation skills," says Bewkes. This will help people sort through the 200 channels they have on their cable boxes. They will find the shows they want without having to slog through the current crappy interface offered by cable companies.
Piper Jaffray's Gene Muster has speculated that the Apple HDTV will probably turn up in stores before the 2013 holiday shopping season commences.

AT&T was excited when it was able to sell iPhones, when it did come out it taxed their network now everyone is throttled back and no more unlimited...
I hope it does not happen, damn thing must rely heavily on internet I do not want to be throttled back.

Really serves as a example and reminder to us all...that throttling WILL NOT be tolerated, and will NOT be accepted! It shows that the American people will NOT put up with the extreme greed and dishonesty of these companies...
Oh wait....that didn't happen.... Whoops, sorry. Turns out... It WILL be tolerated, it WILL be accepted, and the American people WILL put up with it. Because, well...we don't have a choice. Cable providers are no different from Wireless providers (eerily similar actually) and will do the exact same thing if they need (want) to...And there is not a thing you or i can do about it. Except... not watch TV of course.El Zurdo

Let me add to their response with this: What sucks is even people who do not want or have Apple's new HDTV will be affected by this situation. ISP will have their excuse and screw everyone over, and everyone will be screwed. I hope people in charge of this HDTV do not share Jobs vision and lost direction, everything is screwed up and it does not ever get released.
Considering just about every ISP is also cable/dish provider, this new HDTV will screw with their cable/dish customer. Got to make their money back some how.
