Apple To Bring AirPlay To Televisions?

24 Mar


Currently, Apple’s AirPlay can be used to stream audio from Apple devices to AirPlay-enabled devices. However, according to Bloomberg’s sources, Apple may begin licensing AirPlay for video streaming in the near future, possibly this year. This would allow streaming movies and TV shows from devices like the iPhone and iPad to larger displays.  Such an unusual move could mean that Apple is concerned about its position in the video space.

This is an interesting concept because with Apple’s massive following, AirPlay on TVs electronic gadgets could obsolete the proprietary app stores that have been popping up on new TVs (Samsung, Vizio, etc.). Not only that, but it would also mean streaming boxes like Roku, Boxee, and even the Apple TV would no longer be necessarily the best platform for streaming digital content.

Does this mean the Apple-branded HDTV rumors were false? Were those rumors actually pertaining to an Apple-licensed HDTV?!
