  • Apple TV service delayed due to negotiations!

The Apple-administered TV service was supposed to launch next month but will be stalled until 2016.

TV and movie enthusiastic will have to wait for Apple services until next year. The Apple TV and movie service has been delayed until 2016. The service was supposed to be launched next month.

The service was still unknown and now it seems another year will pass before its launch. The subscription TV service administered by Apple has been delayed due to negotiations. 

The Apple TV was going to debut in September. But a source has disclosed to Bloomberg negotiations fell apart. The negotiations with TV networks have not been successful. There has been a lack of progress in securing licensing deals for programming.

Content providers were not on board with Apple so the deal has been delayed for next year. Individually Apple lacks the network capacity to launch the service. 

The web based TV service by Apple was supposed to provide a number of features. Dish's Sling TV product and Sony's upcoming service were supposedly part of the Apple service.

According to Bloomberg, the new service was supposed to contain content from 25 different channels. Channels such as ABC, CBS and Fox were included. The service would have been available on all iOS systems and devices. 

Recent reports on Apple TV service did not disclose the cost of the service. But some sources did reveal it is expected to be about $30 to $40 a month.

Apple has declined to comment on the development. Many thought the time was right for Apple to take the next step. Launching a TV service seemed logical for the tech giant.
