Apple TV to launch in 55-inch OLED LG displays in 2012?

Apple to further target home entertainment with LG branded Apple TV sets

Apple is to incorporate its Apple TV service into full television sets by the end of 2012 with a 55-inch LG OLED unit the first in-line to sport the iTunes streaming service, new reports have claimed.

Following the re-launch of Apple’s ‘pet project’ last September, Apple TV has risen to popularity with new rumours suggesting the on-demand content service will land in LG television sets next year.

As Apple’s legal battle with Samsung continues to escalate LG, manufacturer of the iPhone 4 Retina display as well as iMac and iPod Touch screens is being tipped as the Cupertino-based company’s likely partner for the first Apple TV incorporating sets.

“There is also speculation that Apple has held discussions with LG Display the Company that makes display screens for MAC products, about the possibility of getting access to a new 55 LG OLED panel that will be used in a new Apple TV that will be capable of delivering music, Video & TV shows over an IP network,” Apple blog 9to5Mac has reported.

Further recent reports have suggested that ahead of the 2012 Apple TV set release Apple plans to launch a Apple HDTV service which will allow users to download and stream Full HD 1080p video content direct from iTunes.

Would an Apple TV set be another must own item from the iPad creator or an overpriced set that offers little new functionality? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
