Report: Apple Planning Online Video Launch Featuring 25 Broadcast Channels

Just a week after the announcement that Apple will be the exclusive launch partner for the HBO Now streaming service, a Wall Street Journal article reports the company is planning to introduce an online TV service featuring up to 25 broadcast channels, including content from ABC, CBS, and Fox.

The WSJ reports that media executives they interviewed believe Apple in planning to charge $30 to $40 per month for the service, which it aims to announce in June and launch in September.

This is not the first time there have been rumors about the launch of an Apple TV service. In 2012 Jefferies & Co. analyst James Kisner said in a report that his industry contacts suggest that “at least one major North American cable system operator is working to estimate how much additional capacity may be needed for a new Apple device on their broadband data network.”

Last year the WSJ reported: “Apple was in talks with Comcast to team up on a streaming TV service that would use an Apple set-top box and get special treatment on Comcast’s cable pipes to bypass congestion on the Web. Apple had discussions since at least mid-2012 with Time Warner Cable, but those talks came to a standstill when the company became a takeover target for rival operators. Time Warner Cable struck a deal—still awaiting regulatory approval—in February 2014 to sell itself to Comcast.”

According to a report from Reuters, HBO is in discussions with at least five companies, including Apple, Google, and Tivo, to be launch partners for its previously announced HBO Now streaming service

Citing reports from The International Business Times and Bloomberg, Reuters notes that HBO plans to introduce the new streaming service in April 2015, and is expected to charge $15 per month.

According to Bloomberg, HBO CEO Richard Plepler has said he is looking to reach an estimated 10 million consumers who get Internet service but don’t subscribe to cable or satellite TV. Plepler has said he wants to work with HBO’s longtime cable distributors as well as new ones.
