The company also unveiled Apple Arcade, a video game subscription service with over 100 games to start and more to be added.
Apple CEO Tim Cook announces Apple TV+, a new video streaming service Monday in Cupertino, Calif. Apple TV+ will be available in the Apple TV app, which at the moment, is only on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4K, and Apple TV HD. More recently, though, reports have suggested that the higher-ups at Apple are taking a more hands-off approach, which is a good thing when one considers that some of the more popular programs on TV today - with Game of Thrones being one prime example - aren't exactly family friendly. As for specific games, Overland, Beyond A Steel Sky, Where Cards Fall, and Sonic Racing were announced.
Apple finally revealed the game subscription service its apparently been working on for a while, titled Arcade. It pulled out all the stops introducing its new apps, including upgrades to its existing News and TV services, along with a new credit card and a game subscription service.
Speaking to Reuters, the CEO of the New York Times, Mark Thompson, warned publishers about the danger of losing control of their own product ahead of the Apple launch, and said he had no plans to now work with the tech giant. In fiscal 2018, services - including Apple Pay, Apple Music, the App Store and iCloud - represented just 14 percent of the company's revenues.
Afterwards, a number of celebrities showed up to talk about some of the upcoming programming on the service.
Apple also emphasized its commitment to privacy by stating Apple would not know which games users are playing - a message it reiterated several times on Monday during its announcements.Читайте также: Bethesda Giving Away Morrowind for Free Today Only
It will be usable anywhere around the world where the firm's Apple Pay payment system is now available. They will all get the app "in the future".
Apple TV+ also comes amid a shift in the company's profit, moving towards services instead of relying on hardware sales.
The iPhone version includes a 2% cashback incentive on each purchase, has no late fees, annual fees or worldwide fees, said Apple Pay VP Jennifer Bailey. "So, in these disconnected stories, we hope audiences find one compelling narrative that will make the first season of Amazing Stories into a single thematic experience", Spielberg said.
Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, traditional broadcasters are stepping up their efforts, with the BBC and ITV announcing plans to collaborate on a joint subscription-based streaming service called BritBox, featuring new commissions, recent shows and old British favourites. It will be Goldman's first consumer credit card, although the banking giant recently launched its Marcus payments app.
Why is media queen Oprah Winfrey making documentary films for Apple Inc.'s new streaming television network? Billing it as "the new home for the world's most creative storytellers", the company says Apple TV+ will launch this fall for a still-unclear price.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
