Apple TV to become Cable TV Setop Box?

Apple is rumored to cable operators to provide live TV via the Apple TV box.

The battle for the living room has just started. Apple, Google and Microsoft want to become the central gadget in your living room. The ultimate key to living room dominance is to replace the Cable TV box. Apple is rumored by the Wall Street Journal to try to get a deal with big cable TV providers to use the Apple TV as cable box. As TechCrunch points out these rumors are not new and Apple has been said to be in talks with TV cable provider since early this year.

It is unclear if Apple still pursues an actual Apple Television or if Apple just wants to make the ultimate device that offers up all media available in one box and user interface.
