Since 2006, Apple has launched Apple TV, a hardware device that allows users to stream and accessing digital content from various sources, such as YouTube, Flickr, iTunes, and Netflix. In fact, last year, third-generation Apple TV was launched with a very affordable price, U.S. $ 99, which allows users to access the full HD digital content.
recently, spread the news that Apple meeting with Epix , an American company that provides premium television content according to customer wishes. The company is run by three major production houses, Lionsgate, MGM, and Paramount Pictures. Of course, meeting undertaken with Epix Apple has to do with the addition of Apple TV content.
look forward to working with Epix to deliver digital content exclusively for the Apple TV. That means Apple will have added value, not necessarily owned by other companies engaged in the same field. However, these efforts are still regarded as a very preliminary step before considering the Epix has teamed up with Netflix for several years. Epix and Netflix contracts worth U.S. $ 200 million per year and will expire next September.
Now, Apple can only pray and wait to finish the contract with Netflix Epix and tempted to move to another client. No information about the numbers offered to make the Epix feel Apple should think hard about the offer. At least, Apple should provide a greater offer of a given Netflix.
