Apple to start streaming TV?

17 March 2015

Bitterwallet - the Apple tablet Apple are, apparently, planning to launch their own online TV streaming service, allowing iFans to watch programmes on their iPads, Apple TV boxes and whatnot.

They've been talking to companies like ESPN, FX, CBS, and Fox, which isn't going to set the world on fire, but is a start. You can presume that any deal won't involve NBCUniversal, as Apple fell out with the broadcaster's parent company Comcast.

Looks like Apple are going after the subscription market, with rumours that their service will set you back around £25 per month. If the mutterings are to be believed, we'll be hearing much more about this around June.

It isn't surprising they want in, what with Netflix doing so well and Amazon Prime Instant Video muscling into the market. If Apple manage to get HBO and deliver that around the world, that could be a game-changer. Only last week, they announced that they'd secured exclusive early access to the HBO Now streaming service, which means Game of Thrones devotees will be keeping an eye on all this.

Apple, as ever, aren't commenting on the speculation, leaving berks like us to do all their promotional work for them.
