Apple already revolutionized the music industry with the iPod and iTunes, and now they seem poised to change the way we watch TV as well.
Rumor has it that Apple has been shopping around the idea of a $30/month subscription TV service to various television networks. But instead of offering up the service on the Apple TV (as was previously speculated) Apple is reportedly implanting the service into the massive iTunes ecosystem.
But Apple could be taking this one step further.
Just recently Apple released a brand new 27” iMac with a massive 2,560 x 1,440 pixel 16:10 screen and 1 TB of storage. All the iMac needs is a highly anticipated integrated Blu-ray player and the all-in-one behemoth could compete with flat-panel televisions with this proposed TV subscription model.
Some have speculated that Apple could start producing their own TV’s, but this subscription service puts them in the position to gradually mold their iMacs into the TVs of tomorrow.
