Apple iTV: Specs
According to the Telegraph Apple recently just bought Matcha.tv an online TV guide and recommendations service which is designed to both increase the amount of new content you watch but also to make it easier by flagging TV series for on-demand viewing if you missed it live.
At present many are pondering as to why Apple has bought this company however there are those that believe the decision is one which will be used for Apple iTV helping users find new content whilst also integrating it with iTunes.
A new patent has also been revealed showing that Apple is working on a new construction technique which will see Corning's utlra-strong glass fused with the body of a TV or iMac making it much stronger whilst allowing it to be much thinner.
This process was orginally used on the iPhone 4S however the Apple iTV is a considerable amount bigger which probably explains why it's taking Apple so long in their efforts to upscale the technology.
Far from a simple television set, Apple iTV is set to land as a home entertainment hub with the internet-connected units to allow users to sync their iOS and Mac devices via the company’s iCloud service.
"Apple's ability to deliver hardware, software and content that could replace an entire entertainment system with a single TV, puts Apple in a unique position for the emerging connected TV cycle," says analyst Gene Munster. “Apple already has several of the key ingredients for success in the connected TV market, many of which would differentiate Apple from current market players."
With the iTV systems set to follow on from the current Apple TV service Apple is said to be readying the simultaneous arrival of an enhanced iTunes based content service to fill user’s systems with the latest television and movie based content at times of their choosing.
Apple iTV: Content
More than a simple well designed box that will sit in the corner and display the usual array of terrestrial and digital broadcast content, Apple is rumoured to be planning a hefty content offering for the release of Apple iTV much like the iTunes music collection made available for the iPod or the App Store that services the iPhone and iPad.
