Apple is not an ISP. You still have to pay someone for your connection to the internet. If Apple can offer cable quality programming for $30 a month, that will be about a 50 - 70% reduction in my cable costs if I can dump the TV programming from the cable guy. My cable billing without counting in internet access is $101/mo. If I can pick and choose the programs I want to watch, on the fly, you bet I'll go with the $30/month from Apple. Of course, if they can't get HBO (we have that for their excellent series programs) to sign on, the deal is off.
I dunno sounds a bit fishy - sure be nice to choose your own channel packages but at what price . I am assuming the 30 buck Apple TV is for the basic channels - keep in mind that I can rent a cable movie for the same price as iTunes or net flix.
I guess we need to see what is the total pricing , if and when this concept is announced
Not really.. let's see...approx. $50.00 for my internet connection and approx. $30.00 for streamed copntent to my tv...is about $70.00 less than I pay for 400+ channels that I now have... and don't watch 390 of them.
