Apple set to unveil its new OTT service plans on March 25
According to media reports, Apple is all set to announce plans for its new video streaming service on March 25, 2019. The service would likely be integrated into Apple products and offer access to Apple’s original programming and content as well as popular shows from other media giants such as HBO, CBS and Showtime.
Apple has reportedly invested $1 billion in original video content. The technology giant is also likely to unveil what it has in store for viewers by revealing previews of their original content at an event scheduled to be held at its California-based campus on March 25. The Wall Street Journal reported that Apple has tied up with Oprah Winfrey, M Night Shyamalan and Steven Spielberg for their new content.
Meanwhile, it is learnt that Netflix won't be a part of Apple's OTT service.
Apple is a late entrant to the OTT space. As is known, Disney, too, is ready with its OTT service, which has been christened Disney+. According to media reports, Disney+ is set to announce its video streaming plans on April 11, 2019.
