Apple launches video service with subscription plan for magazines, newspapers

Apple finally enters TV streaming space with new Apple TV+ service

Apple claims Arcade will launch with a roster of "over 100 new and exclusive games" and cited creators like Hironobu Sakaguchi, Ken Wong, Will Wright as being headline acts.

The card will sit in the Apple Wallet of Apple Pay and be used for contactless payments or online purchases on iPhones, iPads and Macbooks. And it announced a new branded credit card.

Everything Else: It will have a dedicated tab on the App Store, and have a pick-up-where-you-left-off feature that lets you play games across all your devices.

The highlight of today's "It's Show Time" Apple event, which brought us Apple News+, Apple Arcade, and Apple Card, is, as we all expected, a video streaming service. Apple is reportedly planning to take a 50/50 revenue cut from the news app. It will cost $10 per month for unlimited access to more than 300 periodicals.

If you're already budgeting for another streaming subscription, I have bad news: the Apple TV Plus price is still unannounced.

There were two big names noticeably absent from today's Apple News+ announcement.

It's also worth noting that Apple is revamping its Apple TV app.

Maybe not a huge shock that a service called "Apple TV Plus" will only be available from within the Apple TV App, but hey, good to have that clarity. No pricing has been revealed yet.

The US tech giant, aiming to emphasize digital content and services to make up for a slump in smartphone sales, also announced Apple Arcade, a game subscription service for mobile and other devices.

Apple has officially declared war on Netflix and Amazon Video.

The service kicks off in May providing users with a single app for accessing a number of subscription SVOD services as well as TV catch up services and Apple's existing iTunes-based movies and TV show purchase and rental service.

Apple brought out many of those storytellers to talk about their shows, including Steven Spielberg, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey and Steve Carell.

Apple TV Plus will be available in over 100 countries later this fall.

Unlike Amazon's offering, every service sold through Apple will include offline viewing and be ad-free.

It will be available through the Apple TV app, which will be available on Roku, Fire TV, and various smart TVs.

According to Apple, it is the "world's first game subscription service for mobile desktop and the living room". Streaming video, by contrast, is dominated by huge services like Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, with more seeming to be bowing into the competition daily, including AT&T's WarnerMedia, Disney and Comcast. It would be interesting to see how users will respond to Apple's new strategy of minting money by selling subscriptions.

A week earlier, Apple quietly rolled out hardware changes that paved the way for some exciting announcements. Share your thoughts in comments and keep reading Fossbytes.
