After talking with Apple (AAPL) exec Eddy Cue, Pac Crest doubts an Apple TV set will arrive anytime soon. Cue argued the TV user experience is crippled by the forced bundling of pay-TV channels, and suggested Apple would offer an incomplete solution without a new distribution model content owners are unwilling to provide. This helps explains reports Apple is focusing on a set-top box for cable companies, though that market has its challenges as well. (Barclays) (a la carte efforts)
