Ap­ple in talks with Com­cast on TV ser­vice

Ap­ple Inc. is re­port­edly in talks with Com­cast Corp. to pro­vide high-qual­ity, stream­ing tele­vi­sion con­tent through the Ap­ple TV box.

Nego­ti­a­tions are in the early stages, and many chal­lenges re­main to com­plete the deal, anon­y­mous sources told The Wall Street Jour­nal.

The part­ner­ship would es­sen­tially take the place of the tra­di­tional ca­ble set-top box and al­low us­ers to stream live and on-de­mand TV pro­grams and dig­i­tal-video re­cord­ings stored in the cloud to all their Ap­ple de­vices.
