Apple’s new TV service that was to debut this fall has been delayed for at least another year. Why the delay to bring new TV service to Apple fans? The main reason is due to negotiations with broadcasters and getting their licensing in place to have the ability to broadcast CBS and Fox.
In addition to securing licensing for broadcasting, they are also not prepared for the additional bandwidth that an HD TV service to millions of homes will consume. Apple can spend the next 12-16 months beefing up their pipelines to handle the additional load and perhaps work with providers to get the fastest paths available, similar to how Netflix works out agreements with major providers.
The new Apple TV service is to be priced between $30 and $40 per month.
