Apple’s TV Product Not Coming Anytime Soon

Posted Sep 6, 2012

Apple will not be releasing a new Apple television device this year or anytime in the near future according to Bloomberg.  The new device is supposed to integrate Apple’s App Store with the current pay-TV subscription cable and satellite services.  To get the television product off the ground, Apple needs to partner with media companies and they have not been successful in their negotiations.  One of the largest disagreements is how to sell the device.  Apple wants to sell it directly to consumers through their online store and retail locations, but cable companies want to distribute the product along with a TV service agreement.
