Apple’s plans for the TV isn’t exactly new as we have heard multiple rumors about the company’s plans in the past. This has ranged from including new services and content to even rumors of creating a new hardware, although the former seems to be coming to fruition while the latter has remained squarely as a rumor at this point in time.
However if the latest rumors are to be believed, Apple’s rumored web TV service is expected to be launched in the fall of 2015. This is according to a report from The Wall Street Journal who claims to have heard from their sources about Apple’s plans. The upcoming web TV service is said to feature at least 25 channels at launch including big names such as ABC, CBS, and Fox. The service will also be made available to Apple devices including the Apple TV (no surprises there).
So far it does not seem like NBCUniversal will be part of the channels that will be launched with the web TV service. Apparently this is due to a falling out Apple had with Comcast, NBCUniversal’s parent company. Hopefully this won’t have too big of an impact on the service, although we’re sure that there will be some customers who might opt to pass on the service due to the lack of NBCUniversal content.
It has been speculated that the web TV service could be announced in June which is around the time of WWDC 2015, and could see a release in September which is roughly around the time Apple announces its new iPhones, so perhaps the release of the service could be around then and possibly alongside iOS 9. The service is also rumored to cost around $30-$40 a month.
