Bloomberg has just published a report in which he assures that the Cupertino firm has decided to take advantage of its TV app on iOS and Apple TV to attract new subscribers. According to the publication, the apple company is thinking of offering subscriptions to video services directly from the TV app starting next year.
This means that users can subscribe to certain streaming video services directly from their TV app, instead of having to do it individually, through apps downloaded in the App Store.
According to Bloomberg, Apple takes advantage of subscription revenue for third-party video services, when customers subscribe through applications downloaded from the App Store. For example, if a person subscribes to Netflix from the iOS application using their Apple ID, the Cupertino firm can take a percentage.
The services currently available
Among the services currently available in the TV app are Hulu, HBO Now, Crunchyroll and on-demand video applications for channels where ESPN is located.
