Jefferies: 'We Believe the iTV is in Full Production'
In an investor note this morning, Jefferies analyst Peter Misek says he believes the Apple Television is in full production, reports BusinessInsider.
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.
The WSJ recently reported that Apple had approached cable networks about a set-top box that could start shows after they'd already started.
