Apple falls out with New York Times

Netflix is testing a sub-$4 plan for India: What do you get for the cash?

While it is pretty evident that Apple is announcing its new video streaming subscription, a new report suggests Apple's plans of launching a gaming subscription at the event too.

For its soon-to-be unveiled video streaming service, Apple will apparently adopt something similar to a la carte pricing. This is the first Apple launch event of 2019.

Apple said it doesn't know what its news service users read and won't allow advertisers to track readers.

New York Times chief executive Mark Thompson attacked the Apple business model and warned that relying on third-party distribution can be risky for publishers who risk losing control over their product. This seemed very possible after Google came up with their most recent enviable launch Stadia- its own gaming service right this month on March 19, 2019. Apple's App Store, where the service is likely to be distributed, is now available in more than 100 countries.

Apple will join a crowded field where rivals such as Amazon.com's Prime Video and Netflix Inc have spent heavily to capture viewer attention and dollars with award-winning series and films.

Several dead in Brazil school shooting
Police officers guard the entrance of the Raul Brasil State School in Suzano, Brazil, Wednesday, March 13, 2019. While gun laws are extremely strict in Brazil, it is not hard to illegally purchase a weapon.

For years, the group earns his money especially with the sale of devices, most importantly the iPhone.

The news subscription service has been rumored since Apple acquired the news aggregator startup Texture a year ago.

Users can watch content on-demand on a variety of devices, from laptops to smartphones and video game consoles.

Apple will also launch a subscription news service at the event.

As per WSJ (via Engadget), Apple has been negotiating to offer subscriptions of channels such as HBO, Showtime and Starz for $9.99 each.

Among New Zealand mosque victims: Parents, children and refugees
New Zealand's Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern , said the gunman meant to continue his attack if he hadn't been stopped. Tarrant did not apply to have the judge suppress his name from the media , Australian broadcaster ABC reports .

Meanwhile, equally as revealing from the newspaper's reporting of details about tomorrow's event is a related anecdote about how Apple CEO Tim Cook has begun meeting regularly with Apple's services division.

Another announcement at the event may be a new financial offering. Instead, it will focus on iPhones and iPads and bundle together paid games from different developers that consumers can access for a monthly fee.

Apple is believed to have signed up Oprah Winfrey to contribute to its original shows, alongside a number of other Hollywood stars. There might also be new titles created for just this service.

So, if competition is the motto, then surely we can expect an equally good service from Apple at the Show Time Event. Recently, the New York Times reported that the Wall Street Journal would be one of those publishers.
