Apple’s Netflix-for-games service could launch Monday

Apple’s Netflix-for-games service could launch Monday

The company is expected to unveil its plans for a reimagined Apple TV app that will be home to a streaming service with original content of exclusive TV shows and movies. The service, which launches Monday, is available in the U.S. and Canada in English and French.

Apple is rumored to offer at least some of its original programming to iDevice users for free, but the full-fledged service is going to cost up to $15 per month.

Apple will be adding more new info on new iPhone models, Airpods and other products.

"If I was an American broadcast network, I would have thought twice about giving all of my library to Netflix", Thompson said in response to questions about any talks with Apple to participate in the iPhone maker's new news service. Apple's App Store, where the service is likely to be distributed, is now available in more than 100 countries. This service won't take on new cloud-based streaming offerings like Google Stadia. The battery issues are the major concern for the tech giant now owing to the slowing down of the handsets and thus, there is an immediate requirement of clearing the controversial battery issue and find a replacement as soon as possible.

This mobile-only plan will allow subscribers watch standard definition content on a single mobile screen at a time.

Apple is expected to announce Monday that it's launching a video service that could compete with Netflix, Amazon and cable TV itself.

Meanwhile, Disney's Hotstar, the market leader in the Indian OTT space, has announced a new subscription tier, effective Friday. But ultimately, the TV app is just an intermediary that sends users away to the real service provider's app when the users want to actually stream the video. The service that Apple has planned is a hub that is quite similar to the one that Amazon already uses for video subscription sales, including HBO and Showtime. "Not everyone will see these options and we may never roll out these specific plans beyond the tests", a Netflix spokesperson said. It will give you access to content from different magazines and newspapers for a fixed monthly fee.

While there was some speculation that Netflix might be joining Apple's service, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has finally confirmed that his company will not, in fact, be selling subscriptions through Apple's video service. In the "Wall Street Journal" called it in on Monday night, per radio subscription will be $ 9.99 due.
