Mark Gurman in the report states that Apple's gaming service will likely bundle paid games for a flat monthly rate, and would likely exclude "freemium" games where you need to make an in-app purchase to unlock everything.

That marked growth of almost 50 percent for the service launched in 2008 by the major TV and film studios to compete with Netflix.
Netflix's massive push towards original content might end up hurting the company as Indian consumers prefer Bollywood and regional content.

On March 25, Apple's CEO Tim Cook will take the stage at the Steve Jobs Theater to expand the company's services side of the business.

4K streaming often goes hand in hand with a tiered subscription model; after all, if you don't have a 4K TV, you shouldn't have to pay for 4K content.
Apple has pushed for a 30 percent cut on every customer that subscribes to an over-the-top video service through its streaming service, people have told CNBC.
Typically, Apple events are focused around hardware upgrades to the company's various devices. For tomorrow even we're expecting some sort of TV service and a news subscription service. As Recode points out, this means Apple can set its own prices, and while that likely won't lead to Apple undercutting its partners, it could mean Apple will offer discounted channel bundles.
