Apple in talks to launch OTT TV service - report

Thursday 5 February 2015 | 08:48 CET | News
Apple is in talks with TV programmers about deals that would allow Apple to offer an over the top pay-TV service, Recode reports citing unnamed industry sources. Apple would put together bundles of programming — not the entire TV lineup that pay-TV providers generally offer — and sell it directly to consumers over the web. Apple has shown programmers demos of the proposed service, the report said. Talks seem to be in the early stages, and several programmers said they've yet to start talks with Apple. Apple declined to comment.
