The rumor that Apple is working on a new Apple TV is confirmed. Apple is in discussion with cable TV providers regarding the new Apple TV. As sighted by BusinessInsider, in a new FCC filing from Comcast and Time Warner about the companies’ forthcoming merger, there’s mention that Apple is developing a new Apple TV.
Here’s the para:
“Today, Google competes as a network, video, and technology provider, and 8 out 9 of the next Google Fiber markets the company announced are in Comcast or TWC areas. Apple tablets are viewing platforms for cable services even while Apple offers an online video service, Apple TV, and explores development of an Apple set-top box. Microsoft just announced that it will feature ads on the Xbox One, creating a new video advertising platform. And just last week, Amazon announced its own set-top box while it continues to leverage its unequaled sales platform and family of competitive tablets to promote its burgeoning Prime Instant Video business.”
The new Apple TV was expected to launch during spring, but Comcast/Time Warner merger would delay the Apple TV launch. There might be a mention on new Apple TV’s launch dates during WWDC. We’ll keep you updated.
