Apple is aiming to make it as easy as possible for consumers to pay and watch TV shows and channels the way they want to, according to comments made by Eddy Cue during an interview.

In a new interview with CNN Money, Apple's SVP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue revealed that the shipping fourth-generation Apple TV will have some additional features added to it after its debut next week.

The change would allow subscribers to either service to store many more songs matched, but not purchased, through the iTunes Store for access on multiple devices.

Reversing course after an outcry from artists, Apple Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue has announced on Twitter that the company will, in fact, pay rights holders -- which generally includes the artist -- during the forthcoming Apple Music subscription service's three-month free trial period.
