Since Apple was set to launch TV+ users have been talking about their wishes to see Apple offer a bundle deal, Apple hinted at this as they offered students free TV+ with Apple Music student subscription. Today in a new rumour Bloomberg says that Apple is indeed on working on a bundle service including News+, Apple TV+ and Apple Music, as soon as 2020, in a bid to gain more subscribers, according to people familiar with the matter.
Sources who wish to remain anonymous says that Apple has reportedly negotiated a new deal with publishers participating in its News+ service that would see them take a smaller cut of revenue when bundled with another service. Currently Apple takes 50% cut of the $9.99 per month fee for News+.
The Financial Times has previously issued reports that Apple was negotiating with music labels about possible bundles where the labels would get a smaller cut if music was bundled. Currently Apple takes 30% cut of the $9.99 per month fee for Apple Music. Apple is rumoured to be facing resistance in getting labels onboard with this deal.
