Apple talking to CBS, Disney for its TV project

Any attempt to break new barriers in television accessibility is nothing without content and Apple's latest attempt to corner TV has two big names in its front pocket.

CBS and Disney are in talks with Apple to join their latest iTunes TV project, a monthly subscription that would give viewers access to a whole range of TV shows.

Of course, none of these deals are set in stone and everything can fall apart at a moment's notice, but imagine the effects this project would have on television. Are you excited about it or does it scare you down to the very core of your being?

Depends on the DRM. If I can download and watch shows how and where I please I'll pay. If the shows are in full 720p or better I'll pay. Otherwise forget it - not while torrents are easier to use.

Personally - anything to get away from local affiliates at this point is welcome. I'm beyond tired of stations not switching back into HD after commercials, poor quality encodes from the network (micro blocking) bugs, snipes and lower thirds...it's bad enough the networks do it, but now the local stations think this is appropriate.

Why can't we just be allowed to watch a show and enjoy it?

This but with 1080. They're going to have to offer me something better than what I have now. I have to settle for 720 at the moment. Then I'll pay.
