Apple reportedly 'racing' to get HBO and Showtime on its streaming service

Apple expected to announce new streaming TV service at March 25 event

Apple says ‘it’s show time’ March 25: TV service announcement expected

Apple often launches products and services in the weeks following an event.

As Engadget reports, the invite hints at the possibility of Apple announcing its video service.

We'll find out more on Monday, March 25 with the event taking place at Apple's headquarters in Cupertino from 10am local time - 5pm GMT.

Presumably, the shows Apple has already released on Apple Music, such as Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps, will be on the streaming service, but that isn't clear.

Also at the March 25 event, rumors are rife that the company might reveal a news service, which would also line up with its acquisition of news subscription aggregator Texture.

Solskjaer will have two weeks to mull over the performance while a number of his players head off to join their national teams. Hopefully some of them will have good experiences with the national teams and some will have a few days off.

Apple sent out invitations to reporters and analysts on Monday, inviting them to attend an event at the Steve Jobs Theater on March 25 in Cupertino, Calif.

BuzzFeed News reporter John Paczkowski points out that Apple also used the slogan for a 2006 event to preview Apple TV.

We have been talking about Apple's AirPods for quite a while now and regularly speculating on when the company will thrust the accessory into the ether and replace it with a second-generation release.

This year, Apple could only concentrate on the new news and video streaming services instead of hardware, so we don't think there will be a hardware announcement at this time. So far, Apple has stopped itself from deprecating the existing AirPods hardware in favor of a revamped version of the popular earbuds but it looks as though that run could come to an end.

Apple is aiming to resell TV channels subscriptions similar to Amazon, whose Prime Video Service resells Starz and other channels and keeps a cut of the sales.
