The eminently respectable Bloomberg says we will see a refreshed AppleTV tomorrow, with Netflix streaming. Their sources are the ever mysterious “people familiar with the matter”, who say Netflix streaming will be on the device (with the requisite monthly subscription), and it will go for $99. No mention is made of a rebranding of AppleTV to iTV.
Apple Inc., preparing to announce a new set-top box that delivers TV to consumers, will include movies from Netflix Inc., according to three people with knowledge of the plans.
The streaming service would be available on the revamped version of Apple TV, due to be introduced tomorrow in San Francisco, said two of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans haven’t been made public. Users would pay a subscription fee to Netflix for the service, the people said.
They’re also reporting a revamped iTunes site for tomorrow, as well as a new iPod Touch with higher resolution.
