Quoting unnamed sources, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday night that Apple will announce in June a “slimmed down bundle of TV networks” for its Apple TV product and other Apple devices and make it available in September.

The streaming service will feature a “skinny” offering of “about 25 channels” from channels such as ABC, CBS, Fox, ESPN, and FX, the Journal said.

Last week, Apple signed up as the exclusive launch partner for HBO Now, a new streaming service, and reduced the price of Apple TV to $69.
