Apple and Comcast in Talks for Streaming Service

According to The Wall Street Journal, Comcast is in talks with Apple to provide support for a streaming-television service. In the proposed scenario, an unnamed Apple device would essentially act as a cable box, streaming live content and storing on-demand content and digital video recordings in the cloud. While a deal hasn't been finalized, Apple is hoping for "special treatment" from Comcast to avoid slow service to subscribers, a phrase which sounds a lot more like a mafia euphemism than it probably is.
