Following Apple TV rumors from 9to5Mac last week, the sites often-reliable Mark Gurman has revealed more details on the next-generation of Apples set-top box. While last weeks report focused on the ability to play games through Apple TV, this week Gurman reveals a number of features that would make the new box a total overhaul of what Apple TV is, rather than a simple refresh. Apple TV could control your existing cable boxes and TV stations 9to5Mac reports that Apple is toying with the idea of integrating a TV tuner component that has the ability to control your existing cable boxes and TV stations. This functionality, which sounds similar to both the Xbox One and Google TVs approach, would allow users to watch live TV through their Apple TV boxes with an Apple-designed user interface atop their content. One other possibility mentioned is that the company could integrate an Airport Express into its Apple TV, allowing it to perform as a router as well as a set-top box.
