Apple Wants to Provide TV Content to iTunes Users for a Flat $30 a Month


apple itunes plus

AllThingsD has posted a story that has been generating some buzz this morning. According to Peter Kafka, “multiple sources” tell him that Apple is trying to woo content providers to join a $30 a month subscription plan that will provide iTunes users a variety of TV shows at a flat rate. But don’t get too excited… so far no networks have signed up, nor have the details of what the subscription plan content-wise will provide (i.e. select shows, entire catalog, limited number of shows). What do you think? More Apple rumor mill hype or is this a legitimate plan that can succeed with the right partners? Seems to me that Apple would have a better shot at getting an unlimited music subscription plan going with their established partners than jumping straight to TV.
