They say that good things come to those who wait, and for folks who are clearly looking forward to what Apple has to offer, well, here is news for you – apparently, the Cupertino-based giant is all set to delay its live TV service to at least 2016, which is a bummer. On the other hand, it ain’t too bad if you are not the impatient type, since 2016 is not too far away if one were to take into consideration that we are now close to the end of this year already.
Bloomberg reported the delay of Apple’s live TV service after it cited folks who are familiar with what Apple has in store for the future. In fact, Apple had already planned to roll out the service, and you can be sure that it is not a phone service, which will be delivered over the Internet – but of course, after all, isn’t this the de facto platform for many a forward looking service?
It seems that the delay has something to do with discussions with other broadcasters including the likes of CBS Corp and Twenty-First Century Fox Inc, where snags have been caught in terms of licensing programmes, in addition to a lack of content. Apart from that, Bloomberg did mention about the lack of computer network capacity by Apple to make sure that users end up with a decent viewing experience.
