As per some reports, Apple’s rumored television streaming service will not debut at WWDC next week due to some holdup regarding licensing deals. Instead, the offering may be pushed back for a launch later this year or next year.
The Cupertino technology company has told network executives the planned unveiling will be postponed because Apple has yet to finalize the licensing deals. Industry executives predict Apple’s Web TV offering may not launch until later this year, or in 2016. Technology and money issues remain sticking points.
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.
Apple has been widely rumored to be preparing to be prepping a 25-channel TV service to launch this fall after a debut at WWDC 2015, if today’s is true then we have to wait for some more time to get this 25 channel TV service. In World Wide Developers Conference we can expect new streaming music service, a revamped version of iTunes Radio, an updated Apple TV set-top box, and iOS 9, OS X 11 and many other interesting things.
