A new report out of The Information claims Apple is gearing up to launch its much anticipated video streaming service in mid-April. Rumor has it Apple is telling multiple studios to be ready for a mid-April launch, hinting that we could see the tech giant’s Netflix competitor in just two-and-a-half months.
Not much is known about Apple’s next streaming service. We do know the company will have a plethora of content available for streaming from outlets such as the Oprah Winfrey Network, Peanuts, the creators of Sesame Street, and more. We also know it’ll include a reboot of Amazing Stories, a Hunger Games-like show called See, a morning show-based drama from Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, and plenty of other original shows.
The Information does hint at one detail that’s been pretty absent from other reports we’ve seen. In their report, it’s said Apple will unveil a brand-new TV app where all of this content will live. That being said, we don’t have any names, price tiers, or concrete release dates just yet.
With the service rumored to launch in April, there’s a good chance Apple may host an event in mid to late March to unveil the service and the redesigned TV app. We’ll keep you in the loop if/when this happens.
