Apple Subsidies 2.0?


The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn discusses topics around the investing world. The much-anticipated Apple TV -- no, not the little set-top box; we're talking the big-kahuna, hang-on-your-wall Apple TV -- is expected to be available by at least 2013, according to most accounts. This is largely speculation, with no official confirmation coming from Apple, but investors are certainly paying close attention to the company's plans to disrupt not just TV hardware, but the entire video-content ecosystem.

Last week, one Wall Street analyst came out with some insight into how Apple might sell its TV using something wireless carriers are all too familiar with -- the carrier subsidy. Watch the following video to hear Brenton's take on the issue and how the iPhone is going in an entirely different direction.
