Apple is reportedly in negotiations to get HBO shows for its Apple TV by mid-2013, according to Bloomberg. The shows would come via a new HBO Go application for the streaming device.

Cable and satellite subscribers who pay for HBO will be able to watch more than 600 hours of films and television shows on Apple TV, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. Apple TV is a set-top device that streams content purchased on iTunes and via other online services to consumers’ televisions.

HBO would help Apple increase the popularity of its media device which already offers Netflix and Hulu. During the last quarter of 2012 Apple sold over 2 million of the set-top box.

The company is expected to release a minor AppleTV3,2 hardware update which will bump internal specifications but not change anything externally.
