5 big challenges Apple will face in the TV business

“The maker of the iPod, iPhone, iPad and Macintosh faces high hurdles if it wants to upend the mature TV industry with a landmark new product, as many observers suspect,” Patrick Seitz writes for Investor’s Business Daily.
“Everything about the mythical iTV — some say iPanel — is the subject of fevered speculation,” Seitz writes. “The launch time frame, screen sizes, technological features, price and whether it will come with a new over-the-top TV service from Apple are subjects debated by industry watchers.”

Here are the big challenges Apple will face if it enters the TV business:
1. Finding its place in a mature market
2. Making a decent profit
3. Making a unique TV set
4. Creating its own over-the-top TV service
5. Finding a compelling way to display the TV sets at retail
