Apple (AAPL) recently began talks with premium TV channel Epix (owned by VIA, LGF, and MGM) over a deal to stream movies to Apple TV set-top boxes and a future TV set, Reuters reports. Netflix (NFLX) currently has exclusive rights to streaming Epix movies, but that deal ends in September, and a new one is expected to be costly. Apple previously was rumored to be interested in exclusive rights to the English Premier League.

    Big boys won't make any decisions until official statements come out (or get leaked through insider information)

    Interesting tidbit: 'Apple previously was rumored to be interested in exclusive rights to the English Premier League.'

     

    Given how much the likes of Wayne Rooney are paid every week given the Premier League's deal with Sky it would seem small fry if Apple were to start bidding for the rights too!

     

    If true it just shows how seriously Apple are planning to disrupt the television business because in Europe and Asia the English Premier League is huge!

     

    This could be a very interesting year!
