Will Apple TV hurt DVD sales?

An analyst with Deutsche Bank says he believes Apple TV will sell 2 million units this year, and the iTunes-to-TV box could conceivably “carve out 20 to 30 percent” of the $26 billion DVD market in a few years. The Apple TV is supposed to ship this month — I have it on pre-order — but no word from Apple whether it will make its deadline.

Adds Allen in comments: “Do you get all of the bonus extras that come with the DVDs on these downloads? That’s part of the reason I buy DVDs.”

Adds Hussman in comments: “Until it lets me do torrent files, I may have a hard time buying it… though it does look darn cool.”
