Apple during its earnings call today announced that it has sold 2 million Apple TVs during the holiday quarter which is 60% more compared to last year during the same period. Apple’s hobby is definitely on the verge of becoming a fully matured business now. Over the years, Apple has sold 10 million Apple TV device units making it a hugely popular player in the TV industry.
Since a long time, predictions are being made that Apple will get into the HDTV game, but as of now there is no news about that. Again, software needs to be baked right into the unit, mostly as Samsung has done so with its Smart TV. Apps now need to be a part of the TV as well in order to enhance the entire living room experience.
Apple did add the opportunity to playback content on your TV wirelessly via AirPlay which works well for the time being.
