Apple is reportedly in talks with a number of broadcasters including ABC, CBS and Fox to have up to 25 channels at launch for $30 to $40 per month. The service will work across all devices powered by iOS, including iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV.
The big broadcaster that’s apparently missing from the talks is NBCUniversal, due to a failed project between Apple and NBCUniversal’s parent company, Comcast.
It’s not like Apple isn’t already working in the space; it announced just last week that HBO Now will be exclusive to the Apple TV. Others in the space, like Sling TV, already offer alternatives to cable subscriptions.
The report says that the service is planned to launch in the fall of this year, which would line up nicely around the time Apple traditionally holds its iPhone events.
