Bewkes expressed his confidence in a potential Apple streaming services during Time Warner's earning's call. Such a service has been widely-reported, and is reportedly aiming for a fall launch. Bewkes said that such a move wouldn't be surprising from Apple, who earlier this month partnered with Time Warner to launch HBO Now.
"We think Apple is very forward-thinking about television," he said, noting the computer maker's deal with Time Warner as the launch partner of streaming service HBO Now. "It's no surprise to anyone that Apple would be interested in launching a TV product."
It's been rumored that Apple's service will have as many as 25 channels at launch, and will reportedly cost between $20 and $40 per month.
Apple is also said to be preparing a new version of their Apple TV hardware, which could make its debut this summer.
