Apple sets March 25 event, hints at streaming

Apple sets March 25 event, hints at streaming

Apple has sent out invites for its next event in Cupertino on March 25.

Timing is reportedly tight.

Sources assured Reuters that Apple is set to launch a streaming television service that is expected to include TV service subscription. The process has worked out well for Apple Music.

Apple has been suggesting a planned video service for a long time, spending $2 billion in Hollywood to create its own content and signing major stars such as Oprah Winfrey.

The company is expected to focus on its new services at the event.

Westbrook has testy encounter with fans in Utah
But just making sure I'm healthy and in the right mindset to go out there on the floor, that was my biggest goal. Westbrook's comments came after he says a fan told him to "Get down on [his] knees like you're used to".

Apple has announced that its next special event will take on 25 March. Wall Street, meanwhile, believes services will become a more important component of Apple's business.

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, Bloomberg News had reported last month.

The streaming TV service, though, is the big gamble - an attempt to try something much more hard than it looks and which is also generating competition at an exponential rate these days. Apple might have increased the screen size from 9.7-inches to 10.2-inches, although we won't know until the event. We may also get a sense of Apple's rumored Apple News-related subscription offering around things like newspapers and magazines, assuming the company has been able to smooth over disagreements with publishers that have apparently threatened to delay that announcement.

Last year, The New York Times reported that Apple's original series could begin debuting as soon as March 2019.
