    Apple needs to drop the AppleTV prices significantly eh? Even for the simple reason of creating a bigger market, so more time would be spent on apps from developers you know? I think you can get away with up to 20% above competitors in pricing… if your value offering is legitimate.

    Apple’s looking at 3X the price of competitors. And in Canada the TV app content selection sucks. Basically a different UI for cravetv, with a few broken CityTV land mines and CBC (I actually have nothing wrong to say about CBC, they just don’t provide too too much I watch.)
