5G is expected to be the next standard in mobile connectivity, and as expected it will be faster than what is offered in the market today. How much faster, you ask? According to a report from Variety, it seems that it will be fast enough to the point where Verizon is comfortable including YouTube TV and Apple TV 4K as part of its 5G broadband bundle.
According to Verizon’s new CEO Hans Vestberg, “We believe 5G will disrupt the entertainment industry further and are excited to provide our customers with the choice of the best network, the best content and the best partners.” Details of the deal are a bit scarce at this point in time, but it is expected to be revealed in full once the 5G residential broadband service goes on sale.
This is a huge coup for Apple to have the Apple TV bundled together with broadband service. Given what we’ve been hearing so far about Apple’s plans for their own streaming service, ensuring that the Apple TV gets into as many homes as possible will be a great way for the company to encourage customers to sign up for their services.
We have heard rumors that Apple could also be planning their own streaming bundle which could include access to TV shows, music, and news.
