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. However, Apple has a history of launching new products in its March event.

With sales of the iPhone struggling, Apple is looking to take advantage of the 900 million iPhones that are active around the world to sell them monthly subscriptions.
