Apple unveils new service offerings as company looks to grow revenue outside of devices

Apple TV

Apple Arcade, a new games subscription service from the company was announced at its special event.

Apple's got a big event scheduled for March 25th that's expected to reveal some exciting new products from the massive tech company.

Several smart TV brands are also onboard with a new app, with Samsung, LG, Sony, and VIZIO amongst them.

Apple has already commissioned programming from Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.

Prayer time turns to terror for Christchurch shooting witness
Two Jordanians were among those killed, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement carried by the state-run Petra news service. NZC CEO David White said his organisation endorsed the process and the wishes of the players at such a traumatic time.

"This is what we call now the battle for the lounge room", futurist Steve Sammartino told 3AW Breakfast. To top it all off, the tech giant unveiled Apple Card, which was said to be "an innovative, new kind of credit card" created to help customers lead a healthier financial life.

Users will be able to access all this new content through a revamped Apple TV app, which according to Apple now "personalizes what viewers love to watch across their existing apps and services while developing a secure and comprehensive understanding of users "viewing interests". It will be ad-free and available on Apple devices as well as other platforms such as Roku and Amazon Fire TV. It allows users to discover and watch shows, movies, news, sports and more in one app.

Apple said magazines including National Geographic, The New Yorker and Wired will be included, along with newspapers including the Los Angeles Times and the Wall Street Journal.

At the moment, the Apple TV app aggregates videos from a range of different video services; however, it is ultimately simply an intermediary that sends users to streaming providers. Walt Disney Co.is launching its own service this year, armed with an imposing library that became more formidable with its purchase of 21st Century Fox's films and TV series. You'll be able to find it all via a new tab in the App Store. 58 percent of Americans already subscribe to a video streaming service like Netflix or Hulu.

The mouse house will divest 21 Century Fox's regional USA sports channels as a condition for regulatory approval of the deal. The deal does not include Fox News , the Fox broadcast network, television stations, Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2.

This system includes both subscription services and iTunes-purchased movies and shows.

Throughout their presentation, Apple executives stressed privacy protections for consumers as they shop and consume content across a range of Apple phones, iPads or other hardware.

A physical version of the card is also to be launched for use in locations where Apple Pay is not accepted.

Apple says Apple Card can track spending across devices, won't have any late or annual fees, and will offer 2 per cent cash back.

During the season, the Lakers made a hard push to try and trade for Anthony Davis to save their season. During the fourth quarter, Harden scored all of the Rockets' points in a 13-2 burst.

One new aspect of the app is a dedicated kids section, which clearly took some cues from Netflix's children's UI.
