According to reports from trusted source Apple TV launch date 2016 but not this year. The report indicates that Apple has scrapped plans to announce its long-rumored streaming TV service at its upcoming September 9 event.
Additionally, Apple also doesn’t have the computer network capacity in place to ensure a good viewing experience — a common complaint among users of Dish’s Sling TV and other streaming services. Thus, the company has decided to push back the launch of its service to 2016.
For those unfamiliar with the Apple streaming TV service specs, then Apple has been working on an over-the-Internet TV service with a slimmer channel set and cheaper monthly fee than traditional cable. It’s claimed that Apple is in talks with TV programmers about potential deals that could allow Apple to offer a payment based TV streaming service.
The idea is that instead of providing hundreds of channels to consumers like current paid TV offerings, Cupertino company would put together multiple popular TV channels and stream them directly to your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV utilizing the internet. It means that Apple wouldn’t be a stereotypical TV provider, it has a habit of taking existing technologies and improving them.
It was rumored that Apples fans would see the service release this year, but the project continues to experience set-backs.
Despite this disheartened report other rumors say that Apple is still planning to introduce a new streaming TV service at an event next month. This refreshed Apple TV is said to be more powerful than the current model, with a touchpad remote control and native apps and games support.
With supposition of Apple TV launch date 2016 the rumors say that Apple’s subscription will reportedly cost around $30-40, which is more expensive than other American TV providers such as Sling TV, which offers a $20 base package. It’s claimed that the service will offer around 25 different channels, with the likes of ABC, CBS and Fox being lined up as partners.
