Apple's Streaming Service: Here's Everything That Was Announced

Apple launches News+, Channels, TV+ and more

Oprah cited that opportunity on Monday at the event.

The most interesting of the services is the video streaming one, and it's something Apple has been struggling with for years.

Apple is entering a crowded and growing video streaming field. Apple has been on a launch spree last week.

During Monday's event, Apple also lifted the curtain on a television and movie streaming service, introduced updates to its payment system, and launched a games arcade. The service will allow users to access over 100 exclusive games, including a new Sonic game and games made by several industry stalwarts.

I'd not be surprised to see Disney and Appel announce something in the near future - probably an integration of Disney+ onto Apple's TV+ app and service.

You'll be able to experience all of these shows via the Apple TV app.

The firm also revealed a news service, Apple News+, which will include more than 300 magazine titles including Marie Claire, Vogue, New Yorker, Esquire, National Geographic and Rolling Stone. Though many mobile games are given out for free, players can rack up hundreds of dollars for optional extras such as virtual weapons.

Apple says the Arcade subscription will be available this fall. Apple credit card holders earn two percent of the purchase amount when they use the apple card, and three percent when they make a purchase directly form Apple. This is in contrast to the sometimes-confusing alphabet soup people can see on their credit card statements. The company is emphasizing privacy and says it won't know what you bought or where.

An optional physical card is available, but in typical Apple fashion, it's a laser-etched titanium rectangle.

Amazon to launch mobile ads, in threat to Google and Facebook
Amazon is already faring better on the digital advertising space by increasing its market share by 2% in one year. Amazon has avoided selling advertising space on its site from years, not to disrupt shopping experience.

ORIGINAL 5:38 a.m. Shows from each service you subscribe to - including Hulu and Prime Video, but notably not Netflix - will appear as if they're all part of the same service, side by side.The new version will roll out as a software update in May and as a new app on Macs in the fall.

Apple's streaming service will be distributed via the Apple app store that is now available in more than 100 countries.

Cheddar previously reported that Apple was working on the gaming service, citing five sources who claimed talks with developers began a year ago.

Roger Rosner, Apple vice president of applications, speaks during the event to announce new products.

The key element in the Services unit is the fees Apple can charge to act as the gatekeeper. The company is pushing digital subscriptions as it searches for new growth.

Apple is embracing services to boost revenue as the company's three big hardware markets - smartphones, personal computers and tablets - stagnate. What are your thoughts on Apple TV+?

It has taken Cook almost eight years to draw up the script for streaming that the company will now try to execute. It's a game that "shouldn't exist", Sakaguchi said in a video played during Apple's event.

Netflix's prowess has attracted 139 million subscribers worldwide. This also includes streaming boxes from Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
