Rumor: Apple working on its own TV service

In addition to Apple reportedly working on its own Internet search engine which will compete with Google, it seems the Cupertino Company could soon introduce another new project – its own online TV service.

According to the latest rumors, Apple is in talks with TV stations whose content they want to offer to their customers. Service should be similar to the recently launched Sling TV and Sony PlayStation Vue service. The users will reportedly be offered a variety of TV content, all in Apple’s familiar user interface.

However, it appears that we will have to wait until launch, given that insiders claim that Apple has so far only demonstrated this service to certain TV companies, while some of the big TV companies have yet to see the demo. Possible price and the launch date (of course if all of this is true) are still unknown.
