Apple has sold more than 13 million Apple TV devices, and half of those set-top box devices were sold last year, CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday evening at the All Things Digital Conference in Southern California.

While Cook was forthcoming with the number of devices sold, he wouldn't give any details on a possible Apple television. The company is currently focused on its set-top box device but is still interested in TV, Cook told All Things D's Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg during an interview at the conference.

When asked about whether Hollywood, or the entertainment industry, is keeping an Apple high-tech TV set from happening, Cook sidesteps the question.

TV is still "of great interest" to Apple, he replied.

Cook often avoids questions related to the Apple's next moves for television, a particular area of interest for late CEO Steve Jobs. Check out more of Cook's interview on the CNET live blog.
