The set-top box that Apple has in mind would give users the ability to start shows whenever they want thanks to a digital-video recorder that would store content on the Internet, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. What’s more, the device would feature an iPad-like user interface and social-media integration, and it could be accessed by other Apple products, sources told the Journal.
Earlier in the week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has been trying to convince some of the biggest U.S. cable providers to support its set-top box. But that’s not the only group Apple has appealed to. The Journal said Thursday that Apple has also courted entertainment companies in recent weeks, and in at least one case, the company reportedly spelled out its plans for the device in a document.
