    Default Apple Reportedly in Talks With Viacom and Discovery for TV Streaming Service


    Just recently we reported that rumors were circulating the web claiming Apple is in talks with companies such as Disney and ABC to launch a subscription based TV streaming service. Reports from The Wall Street Journal are now saying Viacom and Discovery are also in the talks with the company to be included in their rumored streaming TV service. Landing a deal with Discovery or Viacom would be a big step for the Cupertino-based company as channels like the Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC, MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon are owned by the two companies.

    Apple’s rumored subscription service will apparently be available on the iPad, iPhone, and Apple TV. The Wall Street Journal also noted that the streaming service will be anchored by CBS, ABC, and Fox. The price is said to be around $30 to $40 a month for a lightweight packages of approximately 25 channels.

    Not really in regards to this story, but I do wish sling tv would lock a deal down with discovery and Viacom networks because those are the only channels I'm missing now on the service. Would be willing to switch to apples offerings in the fall if channels meet my needs and the price is right, but they'd have to offer more than 25 channels for $40 since I get 34 for $35 from sling tv.

    Will this arrive with a much-needed, newer Apple TV that has an App Store?
