Apple Reportedly Having News Service Event on March 25

Since a lot of enthusiasts are waiting for Apple's Video service that was rumored to debut sometime in April, we could assume that this March event will be a good occasion for Apple to reveal all the details about this new subscription service.

However, Apple has been holding events in March for years, so it's not entirely surprising news.

According to WSJ, news publishers are not so happy with this news subscription plan as Apple is demanding half the revenue.

That "Netflix for news" platform is rumored to include print media outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.

House Judiciary chairman Jerry Nadler, also of NY , said Ms Omar's choice of words was "deeply disappointing and disturbing ". She suggested her comments were being weaponized by the GOP: "We must call out smears from the GOP and their allies".

Apple has traditionally held a special event near the end of March each year where the company has announced new iPads and the iPhone SE among other products.

We've seen endless reports over the past year suggesting that Apple wants to bundle together magazine and newspaper subscriptions into a monthly plan. Others have transitioned to locking all content behind a paywall, while others offer a certain amount of free content to all readers, requiring payment to access the rest.

We've heard the date of 29 March before, but in our estimations we also think that it is likely Apple will host the event closer that date, with a much leaner pre-order period. To get around this, many developers don't let people subscribe for their services in apps. But apparently, this will not be the case, and instead of a hardware piece, the company will be introducing a new service. As well, the report claims that publishers "likely" won't be given access to the data gathered on subscribers, which may make it more hard for them to market themselves to readers.

As for the original programming Apple has been working on, some of the projects in the works include a revamp of the 1980s hit Amazing Stories, a new comedy series from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia stars Rob McElhenney and Charlie Day, and projects from La La Land creator Damien Chazelle.
