Who Will Revolutionize the TV Market First: Apple or Google?

The smart-TV market could be a $100 billion opportunity for such tech companies as Apple and Google. In this video, Andrew Tonner looks at both companies and what they may roll out in the future.

Apple is likely to introduce its iTV first, Andrew says. The company has brand strength and premium pricing abilities, so this could be the next chapter of innovative (and profitable) products Apple is known for. A successful launch wouldn't hurt the stock price, either. Google, meanwhile, will probably roll out a low-cost alternative based on its Android system after Apple rolls out iTV. 

Another interesting development is Google's slow but relentless expansion of its fiber technology around the country. The continuing rollout could dovetail with its smart-TV offering and challenge the iTV. Andrew says both companies will almost certainly bring disruptive technology to the TV market and reward investors accordingly.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
