Apple expected to unveil streaming service this month

Apple Announces Services Event for March 25

Bloomberg also notes that Apple's first batch of new original movies and TV shows won't arrive until later this year, perhaps putting more pressure on Apple to bring in video from outside networks. Although the iPhone maker is expected to finally debut its long-awaited Netflix rival at the event, a majority of the content available on the service at launch will be from third-party content providers - not from Apple itself. Digitimes's sources said that Apple would introduce the devices on March 25th.

The special event will be live streamed on Apple's special event page and will take place at the Steve Jobs theater in Cupertino on March 25, 2019, at 10:00 a.m. PDT or 5:00 p.m. GMT.

HBO, Showtime and Starz are among the most-popular premium cable TV networks and all expect to reach a deal with the company, according to the people.

However, thanks to the short video invite sent by Apple, we have some idea of what Apple might be introducing.

Apple will also reportedly launch a new 9.7-inch iPad that will keep a similarly low price as the current 9.7-inch model, as well an updated version of its AirPods headphones, which are overdue for an update that includes better sound, wireless charging and some additional health tracking features.

Are you excited about Apple's March 25th event?

There's no word on how this new entertainment platform will work but it could be similar to services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video with users paying a monthly fee to gain access to content on demand.
