Apple can make the Apple TV app for a $50 device, but it can't make a $50 Apple TV?

*sigh*

One of the smartest things Apple did was allow the TV app to be on non-Apple devices.

How much do you expect them to make on the $50 devices? Not asking to be argumentative, but just the component costs, licensing fees for technologies included within them, manufacturing, packaging, shipping, etc, I’d have to imagine they don’t make much if any profit on that $50 device.
Take a loss on the hardware. Build up services more. They can afford it.

True. But they're leaving so much money on the table by not having their own $50 device.
