    No they are NOT the same thing, BUT they are similar. AppleTV is a set top box that brings internet TV channels to any HD TV. It's similar to GoogleTV, Roku, Boxee, etc. It allows you to watch Hulu, Netflix, Crackle, etc right on your TV. You just connect your wireless network (or use an ethernet cable) to the AppleTV box and then the box connects to your TV, via HDMI. Apple iTV is an actual TV with the ability to connect to the Internet built right in, it will give you access to the same stuff that AppleTV does and possibly more, as we don't have all the info yet on this upcoming rumored product.

    Nope, sure wouldn't. Im perfectly happy with my panasonic plasma and Sony LCD. As long as they keep making the hockey puck Apple TV I'll be happy. I'm sorry but I'm not paying what Apple would charge for a TV. I don't have an issue paying a premium for my MBPs but not a TV.

    For what use though? Content higher than 1080P is scarce at best. For right now it's a lot if extra expense with little to no gain. 4k is coming but it's not quite ready for the mass public.

    Default Would you buy an Apple iTV television?

    What about you, would you buy one?
    I'd have to win lotto to buy this and refresh every year. At that price point do you think they would actually refresh every 6-12 mos. at that price point? And it WILL be 5K, no doubt.

    The iTV would go completely out of Apple's comfort zone. People simply don't upgrade their tvs every time a new model comes out - they usually get 3-5 years of use out of them before they get a new one, and then only because it dies. It totally cuts across Apple's grain.

    Also the initial capital to get the ball rolling for production would be pretty astronomical I would think.

    Apple would be asking an awful lot of the consumer to put out 5000.00+ on a tv, cause you know they ain't gonna be cheap.

    And lastly, like someone else said, a tv is not an interactive device. To make it one would result in failure. My Panasonic is internet capable, but I never use it in that way - the only thing I have it connected to the net for is firmware updates.

    Really? Why would anyone expect for us to buy a new TV every year? Apple sells and refreshes Macs each year, do you really buy a new Mac every time a new model comes out?! No. So the idea that the iTV is completely out of Apple comfort zone is simply absurd.

    I don't really watch much television so I don't think I would be interested. I prefer just having all my content on my phone and tablet...
