Hmmm, it does seem as though that the Apple TV launch remains on par with that of a unicorn or a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow where being real is concerned, but here is the latest rumor that is making its rounds throughout the Internet – a Jefferies & Co’s analyst known as James Kisner claims that “at least one” cable operator is currently testing out their network in order to find out if it is capable of handling the amount of bandwidth required in the event of a connected Apple HDTV is realized.
The thing is, we do not know exactly just the kind of tests that have been made where standard issue Internet-connected TVs or set-top boxes are concerned by cable operators in the past. Apart from that, we do recall other older reports of Apple’s plans for its TV set which was shelved, and perhaps this is a possible indication of its revival? Who knows? All we can do is sit tight, keep our fingers crossed and hope that more details (concrete ones, obviously) will be released in due time.
