Could Apple TV Use Siri?

Now here’s an interesting idea, from Cross Research’s Shannon Cross, related to Siri, the “virtual personal assistant” integrated into the upcoming iPhone 4S. As she wrote in a note to investors last week: We think it would be very compelling to own a TV or a device that could quickly answer the request, “I want to watch the Yankees/Red Sox game,” by changing the TV channel without requiring the user to look at a guide or use a remote control, or even specifying HD or standard definition feeds, since you would want the HD channel if available. Or, you could instruct the device to record all new episodes of a show, without leaving the program you are currently watching. Finally, since you are online, a Siri enabled TV could answer whether your iPhone or computer has received a new message, and let you respond accordingly.
