Apple Press Conference May Address Apple TV, iPad Content Deals


Apple is hosting a press conference today and we will be live blogging the event. The event is supposed to focus on music, but there will likely be discussions of Apple TV and iPad content deals. Here is a roundup of the rumors:

The Wall Street Journal reports on what it could mean for content deals on the iPad: “According to the people familiar with the matter, part of the calculus for Fox is that News Corp. wants Apple’s help with other digital projects, including the iPad version of The Wall Street Journal and a digital news offering known inside News Corp. as the ‘Daily Planet,’ the name of the fictional paper in Superman comics.”

Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek reports on what it means for Apple TV: “Apple Inc., preparing to announce a new set-top box that delivers video to consumers’ TVs, will include programming from Netflix Inc., according to three people with knowledge of the plans.”
