Apple confirms March event, video streaming service launch likely


The event will be live streamed on the 25th of March, and we will be covering it live as per usual.

The company is expected to focus on its new services at the event. While the iPhone maker is notoriously tight-lipped before its product launches, the invitations offered one possible hint: "It's show time". Sources familiar with the matter earlier told Reuters that the service may resell subscriptions from CBS Corp., Viacom Inc. and Lions Gate Entertainment Corp.'s Starz among others, as well as Apple's own original content.

Apple has sent an event invite for March 25th (10am PT, 5pm GMT), where it's expected to launch its highly-rumoured, long-awaited video streaming service. A leaker with an accurate track record is now out with a new claim about Apple's product roadmap, saying the company will also unveil a third iPad version this year that would be an entirely new addition to the lineup. It would be competing directly with the widely popular services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. The report also mentioned Apple is in talks with various celebrities for attending the event celebrities like Jennifer Anniston, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon and director JJ Abrams.

Apple hasn't confirmed that this is what it'll be about, but that's the word on the street. As of now, it is still unclear which publishers are onboard Apple's premium News service offering as its 50 percent revenue split demand has left. Apple has also refreshed its lineup previously during its events held in spring.
