  • New Report Claims Apple Won't be Unveiling Subscription TV Service at WWDC

    Not long ago, we reported that Apple would be unveiling its rumored subscription TV service at this year’s WWDC after being in talks with major TV companies. However, a new report from Re/code is noting that the company has postponed its plans to reveal it next week due to technological requirements and licensing disagreements. Channels rumored to take part in Apple’s over-the-top streaming television service include CBS, ABC, FX, ESPN, and FOX.

    Apple wanted to launch a subscription TV service in early fall to coincide with the start of the new broadcast television season. But the debut got bogged down by negotiations over financial terms and new technology that would be required for broadcasters to deliver local programming to Apple's Web TV service.
    The report noted that the networks were worried about releasing new technology to consumers where they would be able to stream local program via Apple’s device. This was not the only concern as there were also financial worries from the networks. It sounds like there are quite some things the Cupertino-based company has to work out with television networks before unveiling their newest subscription service. It also doesn’t make sense for the company to unveil what they have in store for us before finalizing all the details.
