Apple Is Talking to TV Programmers About Its Own Web TV Service

Apple is making an awful lot of noise lately about jumping into the TV business with the likes of Dish and Sony. The service would be Internet based, bundling together programming and selling directly to the Internet consumer. Apple is said to be presently in talks with providers about securing programming. It may or may not come to pass, but it would be novel to be able to pick and choose the programming we wish to see.

Industry executives say Apple is in talks with TV programmers about deals that would allow Apple to offer an "over the top" pay-TV service, like the one Dish has started selling with its Sling TV product, and the one Sony is getting ready to launch.
