Nearly four years after Apple Music first launched and following two years of speculation, a new report by The Information has revealed that Apple's long-rumored video streaming service is finally near.

The Information reports (via The Verge) that Apple has told various studios and networks "whose offerings will be available through the service to be ready for launch by mid-April", according to three sources.

As reported by Cheddar, Apple began discussing this service with game developers in the second half of 2018 and five anonymous sources confirmed these plans.

Along with original movies and TV shows, Apple's streaming platform will also feature content from third-party services like HBO and STARZ.

The move to create a gaming subscription service comes as Apple faces pressure to grow its services business while hardware sales plateau.

Apple now requires developers to make the pricing of subscriptions really clear to the user, as first spotted by 9to5Mac.

Apple is seemingly the latest company looking at launching its own take on the "Netflix for games" idea.

We've heard so much about what to expect from Apple's much-rumored streaming service, and we finally have an expected launch date. The report also claims Apple has spoken with developers about acting as a publisher for their games, taking charge of distribution and marketing for certain titles. But now it's working on a subscription service in an era dominated by free-to-play games like Fortnite that make money from optional, in-app purchases. Apple now takes a 30-percent cut of App Store purchases but lowers that fee to 15 percent after the first year of a subscription.
