Rumors of a “real” Apple TV — a flat-screen HDTV powered by a next-gen Apple content engine and interface — seemed to taper off in 2013. Meanwhile, Apple keeps adding more and more content to the existing Apple TV box, including top channels like HBO Go, ESPN, ABC, ABC News, Disney, and Sky News. Now we’re hearing a drumbeat of rumors that we may see a refresh of the Apple TV box before the year is out. And with the existing box now approaching its second birthday, the time seems right for an upgrade. Are the rumors true? Will the new box include a real app store? Games? A new controller? Whatever the answer, count us intensely interested.
