Third generation Apple TV to include DVR functionality, analyst suggests

Digital set-top boxes

This would turn the product offering into a “real business” rather than just a “hobby”, and could be a real money-spinner for Apple.

To be honest, DVRs aren’t hugely exciting now — the functionality is great, of course, but in the UK every telecoms company and broadcaster is offering the service already. Would a DVR-enabled Apple TV be able to break in to the UK market in a big way? I’m not convinced.
