Subscribers wanted?

Apparently Apple is toying with offering a new service via iTunes. Basically, you would pay $30 a month for a subscription TV service fed via iTunes. So a flat rate $30 per month to download all the television shows that I normally pay 80$ to watch on cable? Hmm.....somehow I just don't think that is going to make Comcast very happy. If it's HD quality, the selection is good AND the commercials are shorter or non existent then this is could be fantastic!

This would really dovetail nicely with the rumors that Apple is re-thinking their lackluster AppleTV device. The AppleTV has pretty much failed to find a market and people were talking about Apple either revamping the existing device OR start selling LCD TVs with some kind of built-in "client" for iTunes. You can already buy a LCD TV with built in Netflix streaming so how hard would it be?
