Apple’s online television service may launch this fall for $30-$40/month

Rumors of Apple’s upcoming Internet television service have been circulating for a few months now but a new report from the Wall Street Journal has given us our first taste of actually information. According to the report, the service will offer 25 channels, will cost somewhere between $30-$40/month, and will launch sometime this fall. What’s more, Apple appears to have had a “falling out” with Comcast during negotiations. 

Apple is working on an Internet television service that would offer 25 channels including three of the major broadcast networks, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. The service would feature ABC, CBS and Fox as well as a variety of cable channels including ESPN and FX for between $30 and $40 per month, according to the report. Subscribers would be able to access the service on Apple’s mobile devices as well as the company’s set-top box, Apple TV. Apple’s entry into the “over the top” (OTT) market, as Internet TV is known, would mean the addition of another major player. Dish Network announced its OTT service, Sling TV, in January. Sony is preparing its own service called Vue. The one major missing piece is NBC, which is owned by Comcast. The WSJ reported that Apple and Comcast had a “falling out” during negotiations.
