Apple expected to announce new streaming TV service at March 25 event

Apple expected to announce new streaming TV service at March 25 event”

At this point, there are still tons of unknowns surrounding the streaming video service Apple is reportedly going to unveil at an event March 25, during which we will hopefully get to see, among other things, the first actual clips from shows that will be part of Apple's forthcoming Netflix rival.

The video service, which is created to rival offerings from Netflix Inc. and Amazon.com Inc., will couple Apple-developed or funded TV shows and movies with the ability to subscribe to content from providers like Starz, Bloomberg News reported last month.

Apple's special event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California at 10am PT.

Apple has been dealing with the reality of slowing iPhone sales for months, which means a focus on new services could be vital to growing its business.

Apple hasn't confirmed that this is what it'll be about, but that's the word on the street.

Apple's invite for the event doesn't say much apart from "It's show time".

Rumours about the company's new video-streaming services have been around for quite some time.

"We will participate in the original content world", Cook said while discussing Apple's plans for video content including a partnership with Oprah Winfrey. It would be competing directly with the widely popular services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.

The company pitched the event on Monday with the tagline "It's show time".

The event will take place at 10 a.m. If you're not ready to fork out extra cash for Apple's newest 2018 iPad Pro models, the 9.7-inch iPad still makes for a great device at a fraction of the price.
