Many people say that the era of ordinary television sets has already passed and the future of the whole TV industry is apps on mobile devices. In some ways, it is true since young people spend more time on the move and they literally do not have time to watch TV at home. Worldwide tech companies caught the wave and created TV apps, yet not all of them are free-of-charge, Apple TV, for instance.
On March 25, which is today, Apple presents a new video streaming service – Apple TV – and an Apple News subscription. It is still not clear whether the new service will replace the existing Apple TV app, all we know, for now, it is going to be a library with multiple content packages and work more or less like Amazon Prime Video Channels.

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Apple TV has been holding talks with channels like Showtime, HBO, Starz, to provide users with a monthly subscription of $9.99 each. The fee will be charged for its news service as well as to its original content.
To be more specific there will be a small discount for channels like HBO and Showtime, as they usually charge $10.99 or $15 a month. Startz, though, will be a little more expensive than usual. Unfortunately to Netflix’s and Disney’s fans, the platforms will not be available on Apple TV. The report states that the company was negotiating with the companies but nothing panned out. Apple is reportedly still in talks with Roku service and smart TVs, which will allow Apple TV to bring more customers.
As we have said earlier, the fee of $9.99 will be charged for Apple News service, let us look on it. The platform is considered to be a “Netflix for news”, as it will give access to a range of publications for a single monthly fee. However, major publishers, like The Washington Post and The New York Times are not planning to take part in it.
