Apple TV is already home to a number of third-party video streaming services: Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, and a handful of sports-related “channels” like NBA, NHL, and MLB.com. According to Reuters, the folks in Cupertino are in talks with EPIX to put its movie service on its current set-top box and “upcoming devices that stream content.
Looking forward to seeing how this pans out. Apple definitely has the capital and resources to make this a success. I didn’t realize that this type of service even existed but you could argue that you can conceivable use your PlayStation, Xbox or Wii to do what this device does without having to purchase any new equipment. Also being a loyal Sony customer its just not worth the extra money I’d have to put up for the convenience of a set top box. Where is the Added value? Ohhh yeah there isn’t any.
