Perhaps Apple will give a glimpse into Apple's video master plan, which is reportedly planned for third-party service subscriptions to Sell Over Its "TV" App for iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV
The option should be available next year, according to several Bloomberg sources , The release did not say if Apple would ask for a cut in subscription fees, but it was suggested that the move could increase the company's service revenue. Apple is currently calling for a cut of each subscription purchased through the iOS App Store.
For the public, centralized subscriptions could make it easier to find and view content. Right now, the TV app requires that users have to have apps for every service they subscribe to, even if they've used Apple's single sign-on feature.
In fact, the arrangement would copy the "Channels" from Amazon. It allows users to add networks like HBO to their Prime subscription to simplify search and billing.
The prediction that Apple will monetize the TV app is not surprising, as it is not clear where else Apple would sell video subscriptions in a central location – it also makes sense given Apple's ambitions in the area. Apple is currently on a $ 1 billion push in original video programming, expected to premiere next year.
The company has a number of projects in the work, such as an adaptation of Isaac Asimov's "Foundation" novels and a sketch comedy show with Kristen Wiig.
Apple's own shows have been rumored to be free to anyone The TV app, but with a cut in third-party subscriptions, could be self-financing programming.
