Apple in Talks With Rogers, BCE

According to a recent report, Canadian providers Rogers and BCE will be among the first ISPs to partner with Apple on its upcoming television, a product which has been rumored for some time and is expected to feature Siri, the voice command protocol found in Apple’s wildly popular iPhone 4S. Similar to Microsoft’s recent strategy of lining up partners for its upcoming XBox Live video offering, Apple could be in the process of inking deals with various content suppliers. It remains to be seen, however, if Apple can circumvent the entertainment industry’s restrictive licensing practices and deliver a groundbreaking Internet video experience.
