Apple to announce Netflix rival later this month

'It's show time': Apple confirms launch event on March 25

Apple confirms 'It's show time' event on 25 March, to likely launch a TV subscription service

The event should more or less focus entirely on the company's upcoming online services.

It appears as if Apple is boldly bringing Hollywood to its Silicon Valley headquarters, with the event scheduled to occur at its own Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino.

Apple, which recently stopped disclosing iPhone unit sales data, is increasingly trying to turn investors toward the long-term value of its services ecosystem.

Details about the new service are being held closely under wraps by Apple, although it's believed the service will give iPad and iPhone users access to free original programming, as well as the option of opting into other streaming services like Showtime and Starz.

Also at the March 25 event, rumors are rife that the company might reveal a news service, which would also line up with its acquisition of news subscription aggregator Texture.

Apple has been snapping up talent all over the place to build its rival to Netflix and Hulu, including the likes of Reese Witherspoon, M Night Shyamalan, Oprah Winfrey and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.

The company pitched the event on Monday with the tagline "It's show time". Apple is said to charge $10 to its consumers for the premium news subscription services. The company was rumoured to be holding an event on March 25 before, and it's now sending out official invites to the press this evening. If you're not ready to fork out extra cash for Apple's newest 2018 iPad Pro models, the 9.7-inch iPad still makes for a great device at a fraction of the price.

It may end up that Apple launches its efforts one at a time.
