Study Shows Consumers Will Drop Serious Coin on Apple HDTV
Stop the presses! A new survey shows that Apple fans will happily spend a considerable sum of money on a hot new Apple product.
Okay, so there was a tad bit of sarcasm in that summary of today's biggest Apple news. But can you blame me? A new survey spearheaded by AlphaWise and Morgan Stanley shows that 47% of consumers are already interested in buying an Apple television. This demand comes despite the fact that Apple hasn't formally confirmed the product, it's specs, its features, or its prices.
What's more, Apple fans are willing to pay a 20% premium to get their hands on the Apple television over current, non-Apple TVs. "This suggests that Smart TVs currently available on the market do not offer easy-to-use software to integrate Internet content into users' TV experience," Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty said Tuesday.
Although Apple is yet to officially confirm the development of an Apple television, Tim Cook's recent provocative comments about the traditional television being an antiquated relic of the past tells us all we really need to know: the Apple HDTV is coming in 2013.

I won't although if I didn't just get a 55" Samsung I would. I can imagine a dvr to the cloud. Combined with Apple TV and a reliable TV at that.

On a side note, I picked up that $688 60" LED Vizio at walmart on black friday, and have an aTV hooked up to it. $800 for that combo? Cant be touched, I love it.

Also, watching your recordings over 3G/LTE will screw your monthly data cap so fast that you'll be paying overages in no time.

Studies also show that Apple is good a encouraging morons to shell out their cash when they can buy something that performs as well or better for about 1/3 the cost so it's no surprise the iSheep will flock to a stupidly priced apple flat panel.... especially if it adds no more functionality than the $100 apple tv you can currently pick up. iSheep will still think it's the best smart tv out on the market as I pick up the "newest" apple tv and a better spec flat panel for 1/3 the cost.....
I guess we'll see when it's announced.... can't wait to see all the "wow, this is the best tv EVER" threads.

Does your tv have a built in dvr and recordings to the cloud that you can stream on all of your iDevices? Didn't think so or maybe Samsung did 30 years ago and apple stole it. Just trying to get it out the way

With the data problem, I use the sling app and Netflix and have never gone over my cap, closest I've gotten was 100 MBs away on the last day of my cycle, so I'm not worried about that.
1: it'd be a huge selling point that would put them aside from the rest of the "smart tv" world.
And 2: Apple focus' on selling full complete seasons of TV shows And movies allowing you to own them for good (we all know the renting feature didn't really takeoff too well) And me, along with a lot of people I know, record a few episodes (maybe) of a show and delete when there's more then like 3 per show. I think they wouldn't kill there sales for the fact they are more of a "buy to own" type service than a way to catch up on missed TV (which is what I, and many others use DVR for)
