Apple May Introduce $1 Monthly TV Show Subscription, More Details Of Next Gen iPod Touch
Bloomberg reported earlier this week that Apple was in advanced talks with media companies to announce a new TV show rental service that will allow users to rent TV shows for a 48 hour period at a price of $0.99. We are now hearing that this partnership could be a lot more attractive.
Cult of Mac reports that according to their source, the service could actually bring unlimited access to any particular TV show at a monthly cost of $0.99.
This would mean that a user subscribing to 5 different TV shows for a period of one year will pay $60 annually to access the entire library of content during this period.
Meanwhile, iLounge is reporting that the next generation iPod Touch will come with a different back casing besides a rear-facing camera and microphone. iLounge claims:
"Think of the top of a MacBook Pro, only smaller, which is to say flat rather than curved at the center-closer to the look of the first-generation iPod touch's back, only with modifications."
The next generation iPod Touch is also likely to come with a front-facing camera to support FaceTime video calling.
Besides this, there are also speculations that Apple could introduce a new iPod Touch model with a 3G-option. Apple Insider reports that Apple has seen an encouraging uptake of the 3G-capable version of iPad and is consequently planning on introducing the feature on iPod Touch as well.
AppleInsider confirms another speculation that we reported yesterday. They claim that the rumored iPod units with a squared display are indeed those of iPod nano and not iPod Shuffle as some websites had speculated. The new displays are noted to measure 3cm x 3cm and shall be compatible with the existing line of accessories like the iPod Dock connector.
What are your thoughts on these speculations? Would you interested in subscribing for the $1 TV show? Tell us in the comments.
