Apple Reportedly Plans to Announce Its TV Streaming Service on March 25th

APPLE'S LONG-RUMOURED Netflix-style subscription news service will reportedly launch on 25 March, but it's already facing resistance from publishers.

News publishers are also concerned over the lack of access about the customer information from Apple as they would like to use that date to market their products to the customers directly.

From a timing perspective, it seems entirely possible that Apple finally gives the world a look at its video service at its upcoming event, rumored to be happening at the end of March.

Big publishers are pushing back against Apple's alleged financial terms for a news subscription service, sources have claimed. It will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Campus. To this point, Netflix late past year removed the ability for new subscribers to sign up with iOS via in-app subscriptions, thus removing Apple's ability to earn 15% of all subscription fees in the process. But new hardware like the rumored AirPods update, the long-awaited AirPower charging pad or any new phone, tablet or Mac models aren't on the agenda.

Whitaker has done but I think the time has come for new leadership in the department", Committee Chairman Sen. Republicans said they were confident Barr would make as much of the report public as possible.

We've heard the date of 29 March before, but in our estimations we also think that it is likely Apple will host the event closer that date, with a much leaner pre-order period.

That said, BuzzFeed News' sources did not say if Apple's video streaming platform will be shown off for the first time at the event. However, the company has been butting heads with publishers over monetary details-Apple reportedly wants to keep 50 percent of subscription revenue from the service. The service could be around $10 per month, similar to Apple Music, but the cost hasn't been finalized yet.

It's worth noting that the absence of streaming options from entities like HBO, Netflix, and perhaps Hulu arguably hurts Apple more than anyone else given that the company would ideally like to house all popular streaming options under a unified umbrella app on iOS.

Apple declined to comment on the report.
