The Apple TV Vision Is Playing Out -- in China


The following video is from The Motley Fool's weekly Tech Review, in which host Chris Hill talks all things tech with Fool analysts Eric Bleeker and Lyons George.

Chinese company Xiaomi is one that tech investors should be aware of. It has not only carved out a lucrative niche for itself in the Chinese Android smartphone market, but it also has a set-top box similar to Apple TV, though it's been tangled up in regulatory problems. Now, however, a leaked factory photo has come out showing a 47-inch TV with features very similar to the company's Xiaomi box, offering connectivity to China's many online streaming sites. Could this be the first smart TV to hit the market? In this video, our analysts discuss why a company such as Apple will be watching this development closely.
