Apple has been courting some reputable publishers for their Prime-like subscription service.

The iPhone maker has met with the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post to add their stories to Texture, Recode reported, citing sources close to the situation.

Texture, also known as the "Netflix of magazines" application, became part of Apple as part of an acquisition in March.

Texture offers subscribers unlimited access to more than 200 magazines for 10 (£ 7.66) per month, including Forbes, Esquire, GC, Wired, People, The Atlantic and National Geographic.

Now, it seems that Apple wants to open the application up to the daily news content.

It is not clear if Apple would include newspaper content as part of the $ 10 monthly subscription plan or if, as a result, it would increase the cost.

Apple has so far declined to comment on the movement.

The Times, Post and Journal have subscription plans, but it's unclear why they would want to join Apple's Texture service, Recode said.

The three newspapers distribute their stories in Apple News, while Post and Journal sell subscriptions through the service.

The texture gives subscribers unlimited access to more than 200 magazines for 10 (£ 7.66) a month, including Forbes, Esquire, GC, Wired, People, The Atlantic and National Geographic.

At the same time, Apple's considerable user base could help newspapers expand their audience and get their content to a new group of consumers.

Last year, Apple said it had 1.3 billion active devices in its user base.

In addition, the company has shown that it can launch a subscription service.

Apple Music, which was launched in 2015, has since accumulated 50 million subscribers.

The report comes when it is rumored that Apple is grouping its music, original television programs, news and magazine services for an upcoming Amazon Prime-style subscription plan.

Reports suggest that the technology company is combining its music, original television programs, news and magazine services for a next Amazon Prime-style subscription option.

It is still not known exactly when the new service will be launched or how much it will cost, but if it is to compete with your rival, it is likely to be around £ 7.99 ($ ​​12.99) per month.

WHAT IS THE APPLICATION OF TEXTURE?

Texture is an application available for iOS, Android and Amazon devices that provides a "total access pass" to magazines for a subscription of $ 10 / month.

It was formed by Conde Nast, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp, Rogers Communications and Time Inc, and offers more than 200 magazines, such as Forbes, Esquire, GQ, Wired, People, The Atlantic and National Geographic.

Subscribers will also have access to previous issues.

For now, it is only available in the US. UU And Canada.

Apple revealed on March 12 that it is buying the subscription service for the digital magazine, which was launched in 2012.

However, he did not disclose the financial terms of the agreement.

The company will also continue to allow users to register to receive services individually, it has been claimed.

The news comes from two industry sources familiar with the subject, who spoke with The Information.

According to his statements, the first step will be the launch next year of a digital news subscription service previously filtered in April.

This will be combined with Apple Music and a style of Netflix on demand and an original programming initiative scheduled for launch in March.

RBC capital markets analyst Amit Daryanani said in a research report published this week that combining Apple's services in this way would be good news for the company.

He predicted that he could more than double the number of Apple Music subscribers to more than 100 million over the next three years.

In a note to investors, he wrote: "We estimate that Apple will spend around $ 1 billion in the 2018 fiscal year on production / content to be launched in 2019 and beyond.

WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT THE NEXT APPLE COMBINED SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE?

Two industry sources familiar with the matter claim that Apple is working on a next Amazon Prime subscription option.

It is believed to combine the existing and planned multimedia content services of the Cupertino firm.

This is likely to include:

  • An enhanced version of its News application that will include a premium service that offers access to dozens of subscription journals
  • Apple's music streaming service, Apple Music, which industry analysts predict could generate more than twice as many subscribers
  • A new Netflix-style streaming platform for on-demand and original content, scheduled for launch in March 2019

It is still not known exactly when the new service will be launched or how much it will cost, but if it is to compete with your rival, it is likely to be around £ 7.99 ($ ​​12.99) per month.

Assuming that original TV content has the potential to accelerate the growth of subscribers paying music to more than 100 million users over the next three years, we believe that the original music / content combination could represent an annual business from $ 10 to $ 12 billion.

"More importantly, this would increase the rigidity of the iOS ecosystem.

"We estimate that Apple has between 40 and 42 million paid Apple Music subscribers, and AAPL is well positioned to increase the number of subscribers paid to 100 million over the next three years."

In March, news emerged that Apple was making a $ 1 million bet on its own on-demand television service that it could launch as early as 2019.

Apparently, the company had already registered 12 new shows in the project with big stars like Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Kristen Wiig already on board.

The transmission platform, which will rival the popular services Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, is backed by a budget that is above £ 0.7 billion ($ 1 billion) and is expected to launch in March 2019, according to a new report.

Apple's news service will then be combined with Apple Music and a Netflix style on demand and an original programming initiative scheduled for launch in March. In recent weeks, it emerged that Apple signed an agreement for several years with Oprah Winfrey to create content for him.

WHAT SHOWS WILL BE AVAILABLE IN THE NEW APPLE NETFLIX-RIVAL STREAMING SERVICE?

Apple is making a $ 1 billion bet on its own on-demand television service that it could release as early as 2019.

The transmission platform, which will compete with the popular Netflix and Amazon Prime Video services, will be launched next March, reports suggest.

Since October, the firm has bought a dozen projects, nine of which have been green light for a complete series.

The new shows, backed by a budget that is set at the top of £ 0.7 billion ($ 1 billion), will be released sometime between March and the summer of 2019.

They include a psychological thriller by the director of "The Sixth Sense" M. Night Shyamalan, as well as a dramatic series by the director of "La La Land" Damien Chazellae.

Hollywood stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon will join for an untitled series about a morning show on the network, according to the report.

Apple has also revived the series of the 1985 anthology Steven Spielberg critically acclaimed & # 39; Amazing Stories & # 39; and has ordered a space drama from the creator of Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D. Moore.

The New York Times says the company is also working on projects with comedian Kristen Wiig and Academy Award-winning actress Octavia Spencer.

The programming would only be available on a subscription channel, most likely included with the company's existing Apple Music music streaming service.

Apple is building a 128,000-square-foot (12,000-square-meter) headquarters for its new entertainment division, called Apple Worldwide Video, in Culver City, California.

The new team has a workforce of 40 employees, the New York Times reported.

In recent weeks, it also became known that Apple signed a multi-year agreement with Oprah Winfrey to create programming as part of the iPhone manufacturer's drive to original entertainment.

Apple did not give details of the type of programming that Winfrey would create, the value of the agreement or when it could be released. Winfrey did not comment immediately.

But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple pursued it for months and the pact includes everything from movies, television, applications, books and more.

The partnership with Winfrey, 64, considered one of the most influential people in the entertainment business, is the largest original content offer achieved by Apple so far.

Winfrey founded and heads the OWN channel as president and CEO. He recently extended his contract with OWN until 2025.

In March, Apple acquired the Texture magazine application, which offers subscribers unlimited access to more than 200 magazines for $ 10 a month, including Forbes, Esquire, GC, Wired, People, The Atlantic and National Geographic. Stock image

In April, the reports suggested that the Cupertino-based company also plans to launch an improved version of its News application that will include a premium service offering access to dozens of subscribed magazines.

Earlier this year, Apple acquired the application of Texture magazine.

Since then, the company has reduced approximately 20 Texture employees and is working to integrate application technology and the remaining employees with Apple News before launching its own subscription service next year, according to Bloomberg.

While Apple previously offered magazines and newspapers in its Kiosk app, these were not grouped into a single subscription.

Instead, users had to pay each individual fee as usual. And, the same applies for Apple News.

The Bloomberg report suggests that Apple is working to launch a subscription package that would include numerous publications, just as the Texture application did.

Each of the editors would get a cut in revenue.
