Comcast could get dragged kicking and screaming into joining Apple’s TV service

Despite initial reports that content from NBCUniversal (which is owned by Comcast) won’t be a part Apple’s rumored TV streaming service, contract terms Comcast agreed to when it acquired NBCUniversal back in 2011 may force the media giant’s hand.

To pass regulatory scrutiny, Comcast a few years ago agreed that it would make NBCUniversal content available to online video distributors at rates that were comparable to the rates it charges cable providers to carry that same content.

Seinfeld streaming is finally coming soon… but not to Netflix

They look like keys, George. They look exactly. Like. Keys.

Ah, Seinfeld, largely considered one of the best sitcoms of all time. And yet, because the show is so popular and incredibly lucrative in syndication, it’s nowhere to be found online. It’s not on iTunes. It’s not on Netflix. It’s not on Amazon. And, believe it or not, it’s not even on Hulu Plus.

According to the report, Apple’s TV offering will cost users approximately $30 to $40 a month and will offer a somewhat lightweight selection of 25 channels. Some of the cable channels reportedly on-board already include big names such as ESPN and FX. Naturally, the service will reportedly include content from major networks like ABC, CBS and Fox.
