Apple is in Talks with Disney’s ESPN, HBO and Viacom for Internet Pay TV Service

Hot thing in TV industry these days is to implement new internet-based pay TV service that will use apps instead of channels to provide content. Apple also joined the race. Tech giant is reportedly negotiating with different content providers for its own subscription based internet TV service.

Quartz reports that Apple is not planning to launch just a smart TV or just a new set-top box. Instead, Cupertino wants to do something different. It requires standout programming from content providers to make its product totally different from others. Apple actually wants to pioneer the idea of online video programming displayed via direct apps using internet. 

Cable providers are trying to stop content providers to sign deals with Apple. But Apple does not want all content providers on board. It is talking with selected providers like Disney’s ESPN, Time Warner Bro’s HBO, Viacom's MTV Networks, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
