    I'm just wondering what features an iTV would have.
    Here's my guess:
    1) OLED screen or better.
    2) Internet. For iTunes, Netflix, etc.
    3) Cable/satellite activation. So if you don't have TV service, the iTV will automatically present a "TV Activation Assistant." Using the Activation Assistant, you can set up an account with any cable or satellite TV provider that serves your area or add a TV package to your existing account. If you need a technician to connect your TV to the TV provider, the iTV will allow you to select a date and tiem for the technician to visit your house or business.

    Can pretty much guarantee that whatever Apple do won't be called iTV for this reason.

    Terrible channel. There is nothing on it I like. Other than the occasional X-factor viewing.

    It is god awful. I'm scanning my brain now for something good on that channel.

    ... The latest Emmerdale intro?
    I'm all out.

    Their football commentary is rubbish as well.

    To be honest that's all I watch on that channel so I'm out too.

    Too much Adrian Chiles for my liking. I think Roy Keane is starting to get fed up with him too. ;)

    Roy Keane loathes Chiles. He's going to lamp him one at some point, probably after Chiles has asked him a rather inane and pointless question.

    Now that would be worth watching ITV for. :)

    Lets be honest, channel 4, or bbc 4 are the best channels on UK tele

    Cable/satellite won't work because that requires proprietary hardware. No way DISH is going to work with Apple on this to integrate their hardware into an iTV.
