The latest details for Apple's subscription TV service coming this fall

Services & Software
[MUSIC] What's up? Brian Tong here and welcome to the show you know you might have heard of. It's called the applebyte for everything good and bad inside the world of Apple. Let's go and the big story this week from The Wall Street Journal. Says, Apple is in talks with programmers including CBS, FOX, and ABC to launch their own subscription based streaming TV service this fall. Now that's another notion to August prediction coming true this year. See? Now the reported claims that Apple's TV service will include about 25 channels, cost between $30 to $40 per month, and will be available on the iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. The service is expected to debut this June at Apple's World Wide Developers Conference, ahead of its targeted September launch. Now NBC universal content could possibly be absent because of a fallout between Apple and parent company Comcast. Reports claim the big A and Comcast were working together as far back as 2012 on a set top box partnership but Apple believes Comcast was dragging out the process to launch their own revamped X1 set top box for web streaming and you don't want to get on Apple's bad side. Now, getting as many partners onboard is key, like we've seen with Sling TV service that starts at $20, and Sony's recently announced View TV that starts at $50 for 50 channels, but also offers a cloud-driven DVR service to store previous shows. For up to 28 days and I dig that. Now according to the New York Post, Apple luring content partners with the promise of sharing data like who it's viewers are, what is being watched, and when they are watching. The report claims they're offering data that other streaming services like Netflix and Amazon have refused to give up. Now, the reality is that we don't know how much, or really if they are even gonna give away any customer data. Apple is also in talks with Discovery and Viacom and can see channels such as Discovery, MTV, Comedy Central and Nickelodeon available on the service, or, wait for it, guys. TLC, which offers some of the worst programs in the history of television. See here? I took a picture of its website to confirm this. Now, the Apple TV service rumors have been around for over five years and the TV industry is. Is finally moving into the modern era by treating streaming video as a legitimate way to make money. There will be plenty more developments here but I can't wait to see how this all shakes out. The interface and if there will be any cloud DVR feature, which is really. Key for me. All right. Nine to five Mac reports at NBC Universal will still live on the Apple TV even if it's not part of their streaming service just yet in the form of an NBC app that will still require you to have a cable subscription for it to work. Also the living room battle is just getting started but the smart phone war. Is anything but over. 9 TO 5 Mac reports that Apple is planning to launch a new trade in program for android and Blackberry phone in exchange for gift cards that can be used towards the purchase of a new iPhone. Now the program is expected to start up in the coming weeks, and how perfect is that for timing? Around the same time Samsung is releasing the Galaxy S6 on April the 10th. It's competition and, yeah, it's also a jerk move. Now Mario, Luigi, Link and Sam could be coming to an Ipad or Iphone in the future after a stubborn old Nintendo finally realized that 2015 is a big year that they should go on this new platform called mobile games. That's really roughly a $25 billion market. Something i've been begging them to do for 2 plus years. Now they've partnered with Japanese game maker DeNA, and will jointly develop games for smartphones, tablets, and PC's, since no one is buying a Wii U. Hold on. Fine. Fine you that person who just got mad at me for saying that, yeah, you actually bought one. All right. The Apple Watch has received final FCC approvals ahead of its launch on April the 24th. You'll be able to try it on in store and Apple will have its own magnetic charging bracelet for the watch specifically for their stores. Now retail associates are saying that you can make an appointment when they're available while other workers are saying. Walk ins to try them on will be available as well. And, I know I went hard at the Apple watch last weekend, rightfully so, I'm still sticking to my stance that I don't really need or want one, but I'm buying one and trying it out to see if it's worth my money. And I'm going for one that I would actually wear. And if I don't like it, yeah. I'm going to return it, so yes. This $115,000 Apple Watch edition with 11 carats of diamonds from Brikk was the direct line we needed. Alright, getting feedback from you the viewers, it feels like only 20% actually really want a watch. So if you plan on getting one of these from Apple. Check out the pod from Nomad. This is the first portable battery pack for the Apple watch that will allow it to last beyond Apple's claim of 18 hours. You'll take the actual Apple watch charging cable, wrap it around the pod. The pod has a battery of its own that can either charge the watch or even other USB powered devices. And will retail for 59 bucks. And Nomad says the pod will deliver four full charges to the watch. It's still not in production yet, a little bit of a red flag to me, but they say they're just waiting for Apple to send them the finalized dimensions. And since we're talking about charging Apple gadgets. Let's do another killer giveaway for you the Apple biters. I know we haven't done this in a while, and my favorite battery pack cases for the iPhone from mophie are here. Now these just dropped a few weeks ago so we're giving away three iPhone 6 and one iPhone 6 Plus juice pack to the Apple Bite Nation and I just wanna let you know, I have intimately touched each one of these. Six plus. All you have to do is send me an email or tweet me what you think about the Apple Watch. I know I asked you to do this last week so, all of you that sent me responses will also be included. For the random winner that I picked. Alright, hit me up on the Twitter @briantong or email me at theapplebyte@cnet.com and I'll announce the winners next week. That's gonna do for this week's show, thanks so much for watching, and we'll catch you all next time for another bite of the apple.
