Apple stream

Rs 250 for a month possible? Sure, says Netflix, which is testing low-cost subscription plan for mobile users in India

We may, however, also get fresh details about the iPhone maker's planned game subscription bundle, for which new details have emerged over the weekend suggesting that Apple doesn't intend to use the gaming package as a way to directly compete with rival offerings like Google Stadia. The move could also guide Netflix' strategy for other developing markets across the globe in the company's plan for world domination.

The move comes amid deepening woes for the news sector facing a hard transition to the digital world where few people want to pay for information and advertising is problematic.

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".

"Following Apple'sacquisition of Texture, we are expecting to hear about an Apple News Magazines" on March 25. Within that app, Apple is going to allow device users to subscribe to now available streaming services, similar to Amazon Channels. The news and video services will likely debut with a single bundle option for everything, similar to Amazon Prime.

This would let users stream Apple's original shows and premium subscriptions on Roku devices.
