Apple will offer around 25 channels of programming for $30-40 a month come fall, according to the Wall Street Journal. Fred Katayama reports.
Cord cutters, get this: Apple's finally about to stream TV programming online. The Wall Street Journal reports that come fall, after years of hints, Apple will offer a stripped down bundle of TV networks for $30 to $40 a month. It'll only carry around 25 channels including broadcast networks like ABC and CBS, but it'll be a lot cheaper than the $90 that cable operators typically charge. And it will play out across iPads, iPhones, and other devices like its set-top box that run on its iOS operating system. An Apple spokesman would not comment. Missing from this picture: NBC. Apple had a falling-out with its parent, Comcast, according to the Journal. Apple's offering sounds somewhat similar to Dish Network's Sling TV and Sony's upcoming service, PlayStation Vue. But Apple's got other ideas, says the Journal, that includes a huge library of program available on-demand.
