Apple’s next-generation Apple TV set-top box may be the next logical step for streaming services and cord cutters looking for a way to get their content to their TV sets.
A report from Recode says that Apple will be releasing a new set-up in 2018 that will stream video content to Apple TV, Apple’s home entertainment product.
The report cites multiple sources familiar with the project who say Apple will likely make the product available as a software update.
The source said Apple will launch a new Apple TV app that will allow users to stream content to a variety of devices, including Apple TV devices.
The new product will be called Apple TV Pro, and it will allow Apple TV owners to stream streaming content to compatible Apple TV sets via an Apple TV remote, the source said.
It’s unclear how Apple plans to monetize the new device, which will likely be available as an add-on to the standard Apple TV setup.
Apple hasn’t officially announced the product, but it has made it clear that it will make Apple TV available to all its users in the coming years.
The company has been slowly building out its streaming video capabilities, including adding a slew of new services over the past several years.
Apple has said it will continue to add new features to the platform, including more-detailed apps for viewing content and other features that allow users access to content they want.
