HBO, Showtime and Starz would be Apple's ace up the sleeve for its streaming service

 

On March 25 will be Apple's event, it is official, and it will show us its new streaming video service, as well as a subscription for the News app, and who knows if new hardware and other surprises. But What is generating the most expectation is undoubtedly Apple's entry into the world of streaming movies and series.

With Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime Video and many other services already available around the world, there are many doubts about the success of this Apple service. But it seems that the company has an ace up its sleeve, or rather, several, so that its own content is not the only attraction: could include content from HBO, Showtime and Starz.

As just reported Bloomberg, the company would be finalizing the agreements with these services that already have extensive experience in the sector, and in its catalog include world successes such as Game of Thrones, Westworld, Big Little Lies, Homeland, Shameless and American Gods. According to the same source, the deadline is set this Friday to finalize the agreements, and Apple would be willing to make certain concessions to get the signatures. These contents would accompany the series and films of its own production that Apple already has underway, but that only a few are ready for broadcast in the short term.

In addition to this streaming video service, a subscription to newspapers and magazines will also debut at this event. In principle, the idea is that they are separate services, although Apple could offer a "package" with discounts for those who subscribe to both. Something that has also been talked about in recent weeks could appear on stage: Apple credit card. According to Bloombergg, several journalists from the financial sector have been invited to the event, a sign that this new service could also be announced during it.
