Apple’s Internet TV Service Attracts CBS and Walt Disney

December 22, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Apple’s new plan to expand its iTunes store with videos and a paid Internet TV service, may have two new partners on board. The Wall Street Journal reported that both CBS and Walt Disney are interested in partnering with Apple in the new venture, which could change the way Americans watch TV shows.

The TV subscription service would charge customers a monthly fee, to view a selection of television programs on their computer screens. Apple plans to offer shows from major networks, and the tech company is currently negotiating licensing deals.

The participation of CBS and the CW network would provide the popular teen programs, Gossip Girl and Vampire Diaries. Disney would bring in programs from ABC, Disney Channel and ABC Family networks.

Apple plans to launch its new subscription TV service sometime in 2010.

Watching TV programs on computer screens seems to be the wave of the future. Comcast recently offered online access to programs from 27 cable networks.

The three companies, Apple, CBS Corp and Disney were not available for comment.
