Apple is expected to reveal a new video streaming service and news subscription platform in a today’s event at its headquarters in california.

While the Wall street journal plans to join Apple’s new subscription news service, other major publishers, including the New York Times and the Washington Postthey have reportedly turned down Apple’s offer.

Apple has also teamed up with Hollywood celebrities to make a streaming debut with a roster of original content, clearly with the goal of taking on Netflix and Amazon Prime.

We can also see an Apple credit card in association with Goldman Sachs. Apparently, this will be a digital card, and like the credit card, it will support rewards and cash back.

The large number of subscription services expected to be announced today will also include Apple’s game subscription services, which will likely be restricted to iOS users that include access to paid games for a fee.
