Bloomberg: New Apple TV Coming Tomorrow, Will Include Netflix Streaming

Well, here come the last rumors before tomorrow’s big event. Bloomberg is now reporting that, according to three people familiar with the matter, a new Apple TV will be announced tomorrow in San Francisco and that Netflix streaming will be included in the set-top box.

“Apple Inc., preparing to announce a new set-top box that delivers TV to consumers, will include movies from Netflix Inc., according to three people with knowledge of the plans.

The streaming service would be available on the revamped version of Apple TV, due to be introduced tomorrow in San Francisco, said two of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans haven’t been made public. Users would pay a subscription fee to Netflix for the service, the people said.

Apple, at tomorrow’s annual event devoted to music and media, will also introduce a revamped iTunes site and an upgraded iPod Touch that boasts a higher resolution screen, people said last week.”

Oh, these people familiar with the matter. I wonder if there’ll be a Hulu app tomorrow.
