A new report from Bloomberg Tight explains that Veriz is looking to partner with Google or Apple when it rolls 5G service to homes later this year. Through this partnership, Veriz would be able to provide a televisi service to its subscribers, according to the report.
Essentially, Veriz plans to transmit line services to domestic receivers using its 5G wireless technology. The company says that these speeds will match or exceed the current terrestrial cnectis.
With its faster 5G data speeds, Veriz hopes to sell its customers a combined package that includes Internet packages and line televisi programs.
The debut of 5G line TV with Google’s YouTube TV or Apple TV will be used to introduce the technology and mark Veriz’s first competitive live TV business outside of its service area primarily the East Coast. But the live TV partnership might not be permanent. Veriz opts for outside help until she feels “comfortable” with her own internet video service, said Matt Ellis, chief financial officer, at a cference investors.
The specifics as to the extent of a potential partnership between Veriz and YouTube or Apple are unclear. As Bloomberg notes, YouTube is currently offering its YouTube TV package starting at $ 40 a mth, but Apple is not yet offering a streaming TV package of any kind.
However, Apple is building a library ctaining its own proprietary ctent, while reports also indicate that it wants to strengthen its TV applicati with subscripti features.
The details of the new service, such as calendar and price, are still under discussi, depending the pers. Google’s YouTube TV offers more than 60 live TV channels for $ 40 a mth. Apple does not offer live streaming TV service but develops alternatives such as -demand broadcasts and access to third-party ctent via its own applicati.
As is always the case with this kind of reports, Bloomberg notes that “the negotiatis are going and could still collapse.” Veriz said he wants to launch the 5G network in four cities by the end of this year
