Expectations are irrationally high. Tech wannabe spec mongers want everything under the sun. Not gonna happen.
I don’t believe a word of any of this. First of all why would content creators/owners negotiate strictly with Apple when other players are just as capable of providing the service? Amazon, Google, Roku, Netflix for example come to mind. Second the content owners already have a good revenue stream with cable and satellite subscriptions.
