Apple Cable Executive Mulé Hired

We’re starting to get a better sense of Apple’s ambitions for television in the future. AppleInsider points out that Apple has now hired Jean-François Mulé, the longtime senior vice president of technology development of CableLabs, who writes on his LinkedIn page that he’s up to “something big” with his new company. AppleInsider writes that “it is unclear what Apple may have in mind with its new hire, but the company has recently been aggressively updating Apple TV software to include more channels and content.” What makes this more intriguing is that we’ve been hearing rumors that Apple has decided to negotiate directly with content providers to bring their shows to a new online television service that would mirror the services now being developed by both Google and Intel.
