The Future of Apple Inc. (AAPL) TV: Does This Data Prove Anything?

Page 1 of 2

While a lot of people have turned their attention to the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone, including the potential for a low cost model, others are still holding out hope that Cupertino is going to roll out a television at some point in 2013.

Whether or not this happens is up in the air at this point. Apple has not said a word, and this has led to a once hot rumor more or less dying down over the past couple of months.

With all this in mind, there is no denying the fact that internet connected televisions are picking up steam and are going to see even more growth in the years to come.

For a better idea of the type of growth that this market is expected to experience, we don’t have to look any further than this report from the NPD Group: Installed Base of Internet Connected TVs and Attached Content Devices Projected to Grow 51 Percent by 2015

Apple Inc (AAPL)Take a closer look at those numbers and you will see that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has a big opportunity staring it in the face.

This may or may not mean a lot to Apple and the potential for the company to release a television. However, it does show that internet connected TVs are going to become even more popular in the next couple of years.

Here is some more information from the piece:

“By 2015 there will be an estimated 119 million connected devices, including the TV, delivering broadband Internet to TVs in U.S. homes, a 51 percent increase from the 78.5 million currently Internet connected today, according to a new report from global information company.”

The most interesting thing about this data is that we are not going to have to wait long to see the increase in activity. After all, 2015 is only a couple short years away. Before we know it, the time will be here and internet connected televisions may be all the rage.

It is hard to imagine a situation in which Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) does not push a television at some point in the future. This may not happen in 2013, but one would think the time is coming soon.

This data goes a long way in showing that internet connected televisions could be the next big thing and that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has an opportunity to grab hold of the market.
