Apple is aiming for late fall debut of TV service, says report

15 Jul 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Apple Music is out and the next step for Apple is supposedly a TV service. New York Post adds new fuel to the rumor and claims to know that negotiations have entered the last stages. Apple hopes to launch this fall.

Apple to launch TV service

Apple is in talks with content networks such as Disney, CBS, Fox, and NBC. The TV streaming service appears to be a mix of live broadcasts and on-demand content but it is unclear whether it will be available outside the US at launch. Apple Music is available in large parts of the world but the TV market is more fragmented.

- “The platform is ready and it rocks,” said a source to the New York Post.

Apple wants its usual 30 percent, which is said to be a point of contention. The report says that major networks are negotiating on behalf of smaller local content providers to accelerate negotiations. Disney and CBS are believed to the first companies to put the signature on paper.

The report by the New York Post comes only a few months after a previous report by the Wall Street Journal. WSJ believed that Apple would announce the TV service at the WWDC conference in June but that did not happen.

Apple is aiming to a late fall debut, according to the sources, and the price is expected to be between $10 and $40 dollars. If the rumor holds, we will likely see a new Apple TV box announced at the same time. The current box has not been updated since early 2012.
