Apple's crown is slipping – will news and TV shows be its next big thing?

Sunday 19:58 GMT

Apple has more than 360 million paying subscribers across its “services sector” which includes iTunes, Apple Music, the App Store, iCloud and Apple Pay.

Details of the plans are sketchy but it appears Apple will be launching a new platform for news publishers with paywalls – the Wall Street Journal is in, New York Times and Washington Post are not – and announcing a series of new TV deals and original programmes that will put it head to head with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and their rivals in streaming media as they fight it out to be the new kings of Hollywood.
