That's it ! Well almost.For nearly four years, analysts and technology specialists have announced that Apple will launch a product revolutionizing television.The CEO of the group, Tim Cook, finally announced, Wednesday evening, his desire to "change" the market of television.
While observers got carried away by a new subscription streaming service modeled on Netflix, Apple simply presented an update to its Apple TV box, but this new version is more interesting than it seems.

However, the difference in equipment was not used to make the success of the Apple TV, which never really took off.According to a recent study by Forrester, only 6% of Americans own the apple box.Especially since Apple must now rely on competition from Google's Chromecast and Amazon's Fire TV, two products sold much cheaper than Apple TV.
