    Apple Said to be in Talks to Launch Streaming TV Service by End of Year


    The New York Post reports today that Apple is still going full steam ahead with its plans to launch a streaming TV service, but it is coming up against a brick wall in terms of its negotiations with content providers. The Post says that Apple’s Eddie Cue has found much resistance from said content providers to Apple's attempts to impose their usual level of control over the service, including its pricing. According to one source, Apple is saying “we decide the price, we decide what content.” “They want everything for nothing,” another media executive told The Post. Apparently the plan that Apple is pitching to the content providers is to offer channels as apps on its devices, including its Apple TV box. The Post says that despite talks apparently stalling, Apple is not giving up, and is looking to telecom companies such as Verizon and AT&T to help with its streaming TV plans.
