OK so I'm not sure if this idea has been said before or what but it struck me last night what Apple may be trying to do with Apple TV. It stems from the "bbc iplayer" news from a few days ago. My main gripe with TV is the constant barrage of stuff trying to be sold to me. So buying a season of a TV show on iTunes is pretty neat in the way that there aren't commercials. Well what if apple/networks sold themselves as a "network" on itunes with like a "network 3 pass" where you could pick any 3(or 5 or whatever) of that particular networks shows and get them maybe a day after they air in standard broadcasting? It may be slightly cheaper than buying the season on itunes or maybe even a monthly all access network subscription? My second gripe with cable tv is that our of 1000 channels..nothing is ever really on. Well if i could buy certain networks per month and get all of their shows on itunes we somewhat eliminate commercials as well as buy per channel what we actually WANT to watch. Also it eliminates the floater shows that really do suck but get carried by being put into a great time slot and sandwiched between a couple of other good shows. It could somewhat eliminate Cable/Satellite TV or at least force it to change for the better. Let me know if anyone else thinks this is where Apple is headed?
