Apple will hold an event in March during which the company plans to present some of its products and discuss the company’s future plans. According to some sources cited by Bloomberg, the Cupertino-based company would also reveal the so-called Apple streaming service in March to rival with Netflix and Amazon Prime.
Besides, what we know so far is that Apple would most likely launch another subscription-based product, a sort of news service. At least, that’s what BuzzFeed News reported. As for Apple’s subscription-based streaming service, Bloomberg noted that “the video service is similar to Amazon.com Inc.’s Prime Video and Netflix Inc. products, and will include TV shows and movies either acquired or funded by Apple. The company has created dozens of original programs so far but hasn’t wrapped them in a subscription yet. The paid service will launch by the summer, the people said. They asked not to be identified discussing private plans.”
The upcoming Apple streaming service would rival Netflix, directly
Bloomberg also added that the future Apple streaming service would also offer some free content (maybe Apple’s original TV series and movies), but the clients would have to pay to access the productions of other providers. However, we shouldn’t expect the streaming service to go live soon after the event, as Bloomberg said. The platform would become available in summer, according to some sources close to Apple.
As for other products of the Cupertino-based company, we don’t expect to see any of them launched during the upcoming March event Apple will hold. Thus, iPad Mini 5 and AirPods 2 are not going to roll out during Apple’s conference next month. In other news, however, it seems that Apple has sent invitations to some Hollywood stars, including Jeniffer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, JJ Abrams, and Jennifer Garner, so the tech giant might indeed focus on the subscription-based Apple streaming service to rival Netflix and Amazon Prime.
