Tim Cook Tightlipped on Apple's Next Products

Rival Google licenses its own software for set-top TV boxes and just like Apple's device, Google TV models (made by a number of different manufacturers) have gotten off to a very slow start. Apple TV's biggest competitor is Roku. The small, California company has reportedly sold about 5 million units to date. Some Roku boxes now run cable TV apps ( Time Warner (TWC - Get Report)) in addition to other third-party games and streaming video sources. Unlike Apple, Roku markets no other hardware and can't depend on cross-promotion with other products to boost sales.

Cook said they're still playing with their Apple TV product. He said he knows the "TV experience could be better". He refused to say whether he thought ISPs (Internet Service Providers) and content providers have been holding back the success of the product. It could be a big part of his demonstration at Apple's Worldwide Developer's Conference beginning on June 10th.
