According to a report by Bloomberg, Apple will delay its rumored live TV-over-internet streaming service for the Apple TV until 2016. Debates about the content have allegedly postponed the launch of the service, which Apple hoped to be ready before their September 9 event:
“The company wanted to introduce this year a live TV service delivered via the Internet, but is now aiming for 2016, said people familiar with Appleā€™s plans.”
Seemingly, the pricing of the Apple TV is the main obstacle faced in the negotiations. Our source reports that Apple wants to provide “a package of popular channels” for $40 per month, that’s a notable discount from the average cable bill.

Meanwhile, a new Apple TV set-top box is said to be ready for launch. The upcoming Apple TV is supposedly said to have a remote with touch and stocked app store. We are expecting Apple to announce the upcoming Apple TV at their event scheduled on September 9th.
