Apple is said to unveil a new "paid" video streaming service on March 25 at a press event. The company has invited a bunch of Hollywood celebrities to attend the event which includes Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon as well as JJ Abrams. All of the mentioned celebrities are involved in Apple's plans in creating video content. So let's dive in to see some more details on the matter.
Apple's Video Streaming Service To Launch March 25?
As we have mentioned earlier, Apple will unveil a new "paid" video streaming service at a press event on March 25. In its attempts, the company has invited Hollywood stars to attend the event. JJ Abrams is directing science-fiction programs for the Cupertino-giant while the remaining actors are part of the television shows that Apple has purchased.
According to Bloomberg:
The video service is similar to Amazon’s Prime Video and Netflix 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 paid subscription yet. The paid service will launch by the summer, sources said.
Other than this, BuzzFeed has reported earlier that Apple's news subscription service will launch on March 25. However, it wasn't stated whether the company would also announce its video streaming service. CNBC, on the other hand, suggested that Apple will launch its video streaming service in April or May.
The service is said to feature a mixture of original content which will be free for Apple device owners. Furthermore, it will also contain other digital media services with a platform where users can subscribe to them. However, the final word rests with the iPhone-maker and we will find out for sure what the company has in store for users.
There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details on the matter. This is all for now, folks. What are your thoughts on the matter? Do you think Apple's video streaming service is closing in fast? Share your views with us in the comments.
