Apple and BT are reportedly working on a deal that would give them a foothold in the UK's pay TV market.
The companies are in talks to partner up to make EE -- BT's mobile brand -- a distributor of Apple TV boxes, The Daily Telegraph reported Sunday. The boxes would come preloaded with apps for BT Sport and other broadcasters' channels, the report said.
BT, the London-based telecom giant, declined to comment. Cupertino, California-based Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
Apple currently has a similar deal with Salt, a Swiss telecom and pay TV provider, the Telegraph noted. Apple announced in August 2017 that it planned to spend, but its has yet to materialize.
