On Thursday Bloomberg reported that Apple's negotiations with the TV networks are taking much longer than Apple had anticipated and that Apple's rumored streaming TV bundle will be delayed until 2016. Citing "people familiar with Apple's plans," the report said Apple had originally planned to announce the service at its upcoming September 9 event to coincide with the beginning of the new network TV season. Bloomberg also said that price is expected to be $40 per month. Also contributing to the delay is Apple's concern that it doesn't yet have the network capacity to offer this streaming service. The good news is that Bloomberg's sources said Apple will go ahead and introduce the new version of its Apple TV device on September 9. It's expected to have a new remote with touchpad, new software with Siri integration, the ability to run third-party apps, a new App Store, and a slimmer form factor.
