Apple Eyes Streaming Bundle for TV, Music, and News

Jessica Toonkel, reporting for The Information:

Apple is considering creating a single subscription offering that would encompass its original TV shows, music service and magazine articles, two people familiar with the company’s plans told The Information.

Such an ambitious offering would bear some similarity to Amazon’s Prime service, which spans video, music and some news. Yet it would be sharply different from many other subscription media services, which tend to be focused on one specific entertainment area.

I have no inside information on this, but as I’ve argued here, a single “content” subscription from Apple makes sense.
