There are a lot of products we are hoping to see from Apple in the future. One of these products is the Apple Television which little by little is becoming a reality. BusinessInsider reported that In an investor note this morning, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek says he believes the Apple Television is in full production.
Here’s the note:
We believe the iTV is in full production. Recent data out of Sharp, Hon Hai, and other specialty chemical and TV component suppliers support this. Also, JDSU noted that they have a new non-gaming customer for its gesture control modules. They indicated this is a new “living room” based customer. We believe Apple will leverage AT&T’s and Verizon’s content deals for the iTV. Additionally, the WSJ’s sources indicate Apple may also consider a set-top box version for the cable operators.
This all seems to line up with what WSJ recently reported that Apple had approached cable networks about a set-top box that could start shows after they’d already started.
