Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster offered some concrete predictions at the Business Insider IGNITION: Future of Media Conference as to what the rumored Apple HDTV will be like. Here are the highlights:
° The Apple HDTV, which will arrive in time for the 2013 holiday season, will be a full-fledged television, not a set-top box like the current Apple TV.
° The Apple HDTV will come in a range of prices, but they’ll cost about twice what similarly sized TVs from other manufacturers cost.
° The Apple HDTV will offer seamless integration with your other Apple devices and service. The TV will come with a standard remote, but you’ll also be able to control it with your iPhone or iPad or via Siri. You’ll also be able to download console and other games, content, etc., from iTunes, the App Store, and iCloud.
° You’ll still have to have a cable subscription and cable box because Apple doesn’t have enough content otherwise.
