Apple in talks with MGM, Pac-12 over content deals - report

Friday 20 December 2019 | 11:35 CET | News
Apple has held talks with MGM and collegiate sports conference Pac-12 to bolster the content of its newly-launched Apple TV+ service, according to unnamed sources cited by the Wall Street Journal. Executives at Apple met with representatives of MGM and the Pac-12 Conference earlier this year in what are described as preliminary discussions that have yet to reach an advanced stage. A deal with the Pac-12 would be Apple's first foray into live sports, complementing a preferred strategy of developing its own shows, said the report.
