It's been a long time since the first rumors about a possible subscription package encompassing some of Ma's services. With the arrival of the Apple TV +, Apple Music student plan subscribers have the right platform for streaming video at no additional cost, which is Apple's first bundle. But would the company expand this type of plan to its other services?
According to a new report from Bloomberg, this possibility does exist. The company would be preparing to launch a package that would include the Apple music, The Apple News + it's the Apple TV + already in early 2020.
Apparently, Cupertino's biggest problem with creating such an offer is Apple News + publishers and Apple Music labels. According to the Bloomberg, Ma retains 50% of Apple News + revenue (which costs $ 10 / ms) and 30% of Apple Music (considering the standard individual plan, which in Brazil costs $ 16.90).
However, this amount passed on to the partners would change if the company set a single value for all services, which did not please them much.
Even against the sea, the company would have added a new clause to its contract with Apple News + and Apple Music partners which allows the company to create a subscription package at any time, if it wanted to. According to the news, such a "change" was not sudden, so the chance for Apple to release this package in the early months of next year.
If purchased separately, subscriptions to Apple News +, Apple TV +, and the Apple Music family plan would total $ 30 / month (noting that Apple News + is not available in Brazil). There is no information whether Apple Arcade really would be out of this (likely) package, or if there are several types of plans that would combine Ma's service options.
Does something good come by it? We'll see
