I think Apple will mainly re-imagine the interface. These days we have many "smart TV", but their interfaces are just horrible. I never ever used anything other than DLNA client on my Sony TV, it's just painful to use even that. Interface also needs to solve programming - I remember times when we had like 20 channels. Now there's 100+ or even more. And I watch maybe 10. I don't have time to search which channel has something interesting. EPGs are a joke. Much much can be done here... User profiles, group family profile, favorite shows, genres, sports, sport teams, actors, you name it. Then a always-up-to-date curated programming guide and a smart interface which helps you find stuff to watch or even does that for you entirely. "Genius" for TV.
