Tech giant Apple are expected to announce plans for a new TV and news subscription services on Monday, the tech firm are to host the event live from their headquarters in California.

Apple's to-be-launched new video subscription service is supposed to integrate its original programming and programming from other networks. Apple is also reported to have spent Dollars 1 billion on original content with names such as M Night Shyamalan, Oprah Winfrey, Damian Chazelle and several others.

The iPhone has always been Apple's marquee product and main money maker, but sales are starting to decline.

How Much Will Apple's Streaming Service Cost?

To ensure all attention will be on services, Apple took the rare step of announcing several new hardware products on its website last week, including upgraded AirPods, iPads and iMacs.

Spotify's chief executive accused the company of taking an "unfair" 30% cut when users purchased an upgrade on Spotify's plan through the App Store. It's possible Apple could bundle its video streaming service with Apple Music and other services to provide a similar deal to Amazon Prime.

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

Expected to launch later this year, BritBox is a joint venture between the BBC and ITV into the TV streaming market. "We will be testing different options in select countries, where a member can, for example, watch Netflix on their mobile device for a lower price and subscribe for shorter increments of time". Speculation is a subscription service that would give access to a variety of paid games.

Cheddar first reported on Apple's subscription service for games at the end of January and said it "would function like Netflix for games".

Meanwhile, Disney's Hotstar, the market leader in the Indian OTT space, has announced a new subscription tier, effective Friday.

So, if competition is the motto, then surely we can expect an equally good service from Apple at the Show Time Event.

The company also introduced Apple Arcade, a game subscription service that will work on phones, tablets and desktop computers and include games from a range of developers. The Wall Street Journal has already agreed to the subscription offering, based on the New York Times report.

As a result of those private meetings, Apple has also reportedly begun paying closer attention to apps that could potentially help as well as "threaten" the company.
