Apple wants networks to handle streaming for its web TV service

Updated

Apple wants TV networks to “handle the responsibility and cost of the streaming infrastructure” for its web TV service, Re/code reports. While Apple wants to launch its service in the fall, the streaming issue is “one of many unresolved questions,” with executives reportedly hesitant regarding the demand. It’s still too early to tell if this issue could push back the proposed autumn launch, but Apple has been pursuing some kind of TV service for some time now, with many apparent bumps in the road along the way. Additionally, Apple’s attempts at creating its new music streaming service have also reportedly found the company butting heads with others, with little to show for it thus far. Apple declined comment on the new report.
