Apple intends to start Web Television Service This Fall

Apple Incorporated intends to start its Web Television Service in the Autumn season this year. This is a welcome move by the majority of its consumers.

Apple wants to ensue its online TV service. For this to become a reality, it will need to vest its interests in that particular direction. It is currently in parleys with programming experts in order to begin a streamlined bundle of television networks.

According to WSJ sources, the Autumn season is when the whole thing will go into practice. At least two dozen channels handled by such broadcasting networks as Fox, ABC and CBS will be available on many Apple gadgets. Apple TV is just one of many such gizmos which feature interesting and exciting content.

However, NBC, USA and Bravo are not on board the deal due to massive conflict between their parent company Comcast and Apple. In 2014, Apple and Comcast were holding meetings with each other regarding a common online television service.

Apple’s competence in interfaces would have been combined with the superior ability of Comcast in broadband provision. The execs at Apple however became slightly paranoid about Comcast’s plans for the future.

And so the deal was called off. But it appears like there is no other means of attaining its goals and ultimately Apple will need to re-approach Comcast in its quest for online television services. 

Apple has been holding talks with NBC and Fox networks. The skinny bundle of channels that will be on offer this fall will include in their repertoire ESPN to boot. Apple may charge anywhere from $30 to $40 for the service.

The advertisement campaign for the service will begin in June and by September it will actually start functioning. The facility will work on Apple’s iPhones, iPads and TV set top boxes. Apple seems to have had such ambitions for delivering television services on the Net since eons, but it had not had the courage to shout it out from the rooftops.

But now it has finally mustered the chutzpah to go ahead with its plans and put them into action. It may yet meet up with hurdles and obstacles along the road to success. Nevertheless, Apple accomplishes what it brags about in real time.

It became a partner of HBO Now about seven days ago. Things are just getting started though. Apple will hopefully make it to the finish line on time. And its consumer base will thank their lucky stars for a new amenity in what is normally called the Global Village.
