Apple TV rumors swirl

This Apple rumor has some interesting ramifications. Apple may be getting ready to offer custom channel line-ups to users of the AppleTV. The channels would be curated, presumably by Apple staff. The rumor has Apple allowing the user to choose the channels they want and paying a monthly fee based on their choices.

That would be cool and a much better alternative to cable. I have hoards of channels that I never watch just because they are bundled. The AppleTV apparently has the hardware it would need to make this happen. The hard part would be getting the content agreements.

With networks so leery of compromising and upsetting the cable carriers, I don’t see that happening. I would buy a new AppleTV if I could just pay for the channels I wanted. Perhaps that would push cable and satellite carries to do a similar deal.
