We have already talked about the possibility of Apple launching, eventually, a package that encompassed all its services under a single subscription – we even discussed how much Apple could charge for an offer like these. For those interested in the idea, good news: apparently, Apple is still interested in taking it forward.
According to Financial Times, Apple is in the planning phase of a “single” subscription for all its services, bringing together Apple Music, Apple TV +, Apple Arcade and possibly Apple News + in a complete package.
For now, the biggest resistance faced by the Apple would be on the part of the record companies. Music labels would be concerned that, with the introduction of the package, their earnings from reproducing tracks on Apple Music would decrease – which is a prospect at least realistic, since, to attract consumer interest, Apple would have to play the value of this complete subscription downwards (which, in turn, could cut the amount of the transfer given by the company to the record companies).
Despite this, not all the music industry giants have turned their nose at the idea of Apple: some labels have been receptive to the idea, noting that such an offer can attract even more customers to the world. streaming and, with that, generating more reproductions (which, in turn, generate more money).
Anyway, the talks are still in the initial stages, and there is no idea if (or when) such a package could be announced by Apple. Likewise, we also do not know what the price of this megalomaniac subscription would be.
How much would you pay?
