It looks like Apple is looking to bite into the ever growing pie that is media and television/movie production. It seems the source for the platforms grows by the minute. There are now hundreds of television channels covering sports, cooking, music, and the list goes on, and on, and on. Add to them the streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, Crackle, Amazon, et al with all the original programming they add on to their services. No Apple is looking to take a ‘bite’ so to speak. Apple is looking to produce a show about mobile apps starring Will.i.am.
With all the revenue that apple is sitting on look for them to purchase a movie studio soon and shift the whole landscape of the industry. Now that Netflix and Disney have joined hands for the foreseeable future it wouldn’t be unheard of for apple to jump into bed with another company looking to level the playing field a little bit. There was talk that Time-Warner (the owners of both the DC Comics and Game of Thrones properties) was going to be picked up by the technology giant but those rumors quickly faded due to the deals that Apple has with other movies studios. But, who knows there could still be something in the works, and Apple certainly has the funds to do whatever they so choose.
