Apple rumored to launch an internet TV streaming service later this year

Possibly during the fall.


For long it has been rumored that Apple is working on an internet TV streaming service of its own. So far the company has neither confirmed nor denied if it is working on such a product. If it does launch this service it would directly compete with the likes of Sling TV, a new over the top streaming service from the Dish network, as well as similar services from other companies.

Word on the street is that Apple’s internet TV streaming service will be launched this fall. It may feature at least 25 channels including some of the big ones, ABC, CBS and Fox, which are not available on any other service right now. NBCUniversal might not be included in the channels because of the fact that Apple has had a falling out with its parent company Comcast.

It is likely that Apple will keep the service exclusive to its own devices like the Mac computers, iOS devices and the Apple TV. Subscription price is pegged at around $30 – $40 per month.

Rumor has it that Apple could announce the service in June at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2015. At the event it is also expected to unveil its new music streaming service powered by Beats technology. WWDC 2015 is also the venue where Apple always announces the latest iterations of iOS and Mac OS X.
