A Comcast / Apple Partership?

Apple and Comcast may be in talks to discuss a potential partnership.

IWatchStuff.com posted that the partnership would offer Comcast “the most desirable, state-of-the-art set-top box on the market. Apple would seemingly add a live cable feed and the rest of Comcast’s regular features into their Apple TV, putting their shiny black thing in place of that junky black thing you normally have to return when you cancel Comcast. Apple, meanwhile, would start getting “special treatment” from the cable provider; while Netflix fights through bandwidth throttling and talks of paying more for its huge traffic numbers, iTunes streaming service would breeze on through there without a worry in the world. ”

In response, stocks for Netflix fell today while Apple’s stock has risen .7%.

Neither party has confirmed this story.
