Netflix Tests Cheaper Mobile-Only Subscription Plans In India

Netflix Tests Cheaper Mobile-Only Subscription Plans In India

Amazon may be less vulnerable to new competition because its revenue base comes from the broader base of services and not streaming.

"In today's dynamic marketplace, stories come to life for audiences in theaters, at home, and on the go", said Charles Rivkin, chairman and chief executive of the association "Our companies continue to deliver content where, when, and how audiences want it - and the numbers released today speak volumes".

Laura Martin, an analyst with the research firm Needham & Co, said Apple's prospects are strong as it shifts from being a "product" company to an "ecosystem". The rumor that Apple will be hosting a spring event is proving to be true.

While Amazon gives away Prime Video with an Amazon Prime subscription, we expect that Apple will giveaway content to those with iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV devices.

Netflix is one of the best video streaming services in India and evidently, the most expensive when compared to rivals like Amazon Prime Video, ZEE5, Hotstar, etc. Apple has announced that it has a new version of iPads that will be entering the market after several years of meticulous work.

Aside from original content, CNBC has reported that the new streaming service will also have a number of 'Channels'. The Apple video service will be tied to a TV app that is already pre-installed on Apple devices, putting the company's content at the fingertips of hundreds of millions of potential viewers.

Apple has pushed for a 30 percent cut on every customer that subscribes to an over-the-top video service through its streaming service, people have told CNBC.

The Apple Event will be on March 25. The company spends billions of dollars each year to license some of the best third-party content around.

Oil prices stable, supported by signs of emerging supply deficit
Yet prices have been prevented from rising further by concerns that an economic slowdown will soon start denting growth in fuel demand.

The cheapest Netflix subscription costs $9 (£5.99 / AU$9.99) per month, so an Apple streaming service subscription could cost less than that.

It's also unclear whether Apple will continue offering - or at least promoting - individual subscriptions.

The Cupertino company usually hosts around 4 events each year. Netflix and Hulu won't be involved.

Apple has lined up programming including a series about a morning TV show starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. In here, subscribers will pay a monthly fee to read premium content of various magazines and newspapers.

Thompson, who took over as New York Times CEO in 2012 and has overseen a massive expansion in its online readership, warned publishers that they may suffer the same fate as television and film makers in the face of Netflix's Hollywood insurgence.

Apple based the service on Texture, an app it acquired previous year.

It would be great if those who have already bought into the Apple ecosystem with an Apple TV got the benefit of a free Apple streaming service subscription.
