While several people have told CNBC that at least some of the content will be free to Apple device users, it's still uncertain how the video will be available (if at all) to non-Apple device users. Without question, the most intriguing rumor surrounding Apple's media event centers on the company's plans in the TV space.
The keynote promises to be a star-studded event, with Bloomberg saying that Apple has "invited Hollywood stars, including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and director JJ Abrams" along - names that have been associated with upcoming original Apple content. Up until now, however, Apple's TV app has required users to sign up for services individually, outside of the TV app and often using those services' own iOS of tvOS apps - for which Apple already takes a cut.
Analysts see few negatives around Apple's late entry into the streaming segment, at a time when the tech giant is increasingly relying on services to boost profits. A "Netflix for games", it was billed as. Some reports suggest that Apple is planning to integrate third-party subscriptions directly into the TV app including Starz, Showtime, CBS, Viacom, HBO and more. Unlike the recently announced Google Stadia, or PlayStation Now and Microsoft's xCloud, Apple's service is not cloud-based.Читайте также: Russia talks on Venezuela stall over the role of Maduro
Bloomberg cited sources who have knowledge of Apple's plans Providing more details on how the service would work, Bloomberg reported that the unnamed service will focus on iPhones and iPads and the games that those devices are capable of playing. Apple's event will also be live streamed on its website. Rumor has it that Apple's news subscription service may be priced around $9 - $10 a month. "It's a risky business trying to figure out what consumers like at any given time and how much money to you're going spend to produce it", said Rayburn.
Although it remains unclear as of now, but the statement from the content-streaming platform hints that it could start offering weekly or bi-weekly subscription options alongside or instead of monthly plans. Mobile games aren't, typically, as expensive as a season of a show or a movie, so the idea of losing a game as it's rotated out of the catalog might not go over well when it retails for around $5 or so. That makes sense for its first effort: this is exactly what the company did when it introduced the Apple Music streaming service despite selling music via iTunes. Do you think Apple is moving in the right direction with all of this?При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
