We are hoping that we will see some new Apple TV hardware later this year, as the device last got an update back in 2012, although it looks like Apple has some new software in the works.
According to a recent report Apple is working on a new web based TV service, and the company is apparently in talks with TV providers for this new service.
The theory is that Apple would put together bundles of programming — but not the entire TV lineup that pay-TV providers generally offer — and sell it directly to consumers, over the Web. That means Apple wouldn’t be reinventing the way TV works today, but offering its own version of it, with its own interface and user experience.
Apple has apparently been showing content providers their new software, and attempting to get the companies on board with their new plans.
It will be interesting to see what Apple comes up with, and also whether we will see some new Apple TV hardware later this year.Filed Under: Apple, Top News
