At an event announcing the new service Apple CEO Tim Cook said Apple TV Plus would be "unlike anything that's been done before".

The new Apple News+ subscription service is offering access to 300 magazines, along with premium digital subscriptions to the Los Angeles Times and Wall Street Journal.

Apple News+ will cost $9.99 (£7.50) per month and is available immediately in the United States and Canada. It costs $9.99 a month, with the first month free, and there's no extra charge for Family Sharing.

Third-party content opens up right inside of the TV app - no more exiting the TV app to hop into another one.

While Wood did not comment on which companies he expects to dominate in streamed content, he did note that the plethora of options is introducing "the golden age of TV". This app will be available across iOS and macOS devices in addition to streaming devices and smart TVs. It also promised these games wouldn't be available on any other platforms or subscription services.


The company did not, however, reveal any details on pricing.

Apple's video subscription service is finally here.

Beginning in May, you'll be able to subscribe to Apple TV channels a la carte and watch them in the app, with no other apps, accounts, or any kind of new password required. Apple News+ is also coming to Europe, starting in the United Kingdom and followed by Australia, later this year.

Although full details remain under wraps, the USA technology giant has confirmed that subscribers will enjoy inspiring and authentic stories with emotional depth and compelling characters from all walks of life, ad-free and on demand. It's also coming to additional platforms including Smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony and Vizio and set-top boxes like the Fire TV and Roku. In the trailer for Apple Arcade, we caught a couple glimpses of Sonic, which I know makes Staff Writer Adam Ismail pretty happy. It would be interesting to see how users will respond to Apple's new strategy of minting money by selling subscriptions.

Additionally, Winfrey announced that she is partnering with Apple for "building the biggest, most vibrant, most stimulating book club on the planet".
