Apple rushes to add HBO and Showtime to streaming service

AirPods 2 Release Date

The tagline of the event makes it clear that Apple will be using the event to showcase its TV streaming service and premium Apple News subscription service. Apple often launches products and services in the weeks following an event.

Just days after Apple confirmed its March 25th "show time" event by sending out invites to members of the press, a new Bloomberg report helps to shed light on Apple's short-term plans for its TV service.

To add fuel to this rumour the invite, sent out by Apple, shows an image of an old-fashioned cinema screen with a countdown clock.

The TV service is expected to launch globally, an ambitious move to rival services from Netflix Inc and Amazon.com Inc.'s Prime Video.

The new service will give Apple device owners free access to the company's new original content, and it will also come with a Channels system that allows users to subscribe to platforms like HBO via an additional subscription.

Apple's services event could also include some new hardware, with the company possibly launching the new AirPods and its much-awaited AirPower wireless charger.

Apple's two big product events-usually in March and September-are A Big Deal.
