Just hours before Apple is poised to officially unveil its video streaming service, The Wall Street Journal published what it claims to be pricing for that service's news and video bundles.
The Cupertino company will reportedly unveil an Apple News bundle at $9.99 a month. It will include access to more than 200 magazines as well as newspapers like The Wall Street Journal.
How Much Will Apple's Streaming Service Cost?
In terms of pricing for the video service, it's not yet clear what the baseline will be. However, the report says that add-ons, such as a Starz or Showtime subscription, will each cost $9.99.
The Wall Street Journal further claims that HBO will join Apple's streaming library and that it will live inside the Apple TV app. As with the aforementioned add-ons, an HBO subscription through Apple's streaming service will similarly cost $9.99 extra on top of the yet-to-be-unveiled baseline fee.
In addition to pricing details at the event, Apple is said to tease bits and pieces of footage from the original shows for which it's already spent $1 billion and tapped a number of notable Hollywood stars.
Apple March 25 Event: What Else To Expect
After weeks of rumors, Apple is finally ready to show everyone what's in store on March 25, 10 a.m. PT. The event, which will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in its Cupertino headquarters, will most likely focus on services Apple plans to roll out this year and beyond — the tagline, after all, is, "It's show time," likely referring to the video streaming service.
Beyond rumors of the video streaming and magazine subscription services, Apple is said to be announcing a credit card. Bloomberg says iOS 12.2 will bring a co-branded Apple credit card in partnership with Goldman Sachs. Rumors says it'll work much like a conventional credit card, meaning it'll have purchase rewards and a certain percentage of cash back.
Apple will livestream a video feed of the event on its website, and Tech Times will provide coverage of all the notable announcements, so make sure to check back with us. There are plenty of other ways you can watch Apple's March 25 event, so make sure to check that out, too.
