Apple is reportedly planning a gaming subscription service

Netflix is testing a sub-$4 plan for India: What do you get for the cash?

If Apple could offer newspapers and magazines alongside its new streaming service included in the cost of subscription, it could prove a big problem for rival Netflix. Users will be able to watch video in one dedicated application without having to flip between a variety of other company's streaming apps. The Indian players like Zee5 and ALTBalaji collect only Rs 100 a month while players like Amazon and Hotstar charge Rs 129 and Rs 199 respectively.

Subscriptions to online video services globally climbed 27 per cent previous year to 613 million, eclipsing cable television subscriptions for the first time, according to the Motion Picture Association of America.

However, the new reports are suggesting that Apple's approach may in fact be a little more complicated than simply offering a single flat-rate bundle.

Online video streaming company Netflix wants to try out mobile-only subscription offer in India.

Netflix has also been ramping up its India content. While some previously speculated that Apple was aiming to take on streaming giants like Netflix and Hulu, a recent report from Recode revealed that Apple's TV plans - for the time being - will be a lot less ambitious.

Apple has already confirmed some original programming content including a drama series featuring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Anniston, a thriller drama series by M. Night Shyamalan, the TV adaption of "Are you sleeping", and a series focusing on immigrants called "Little America". They own the entire ecosystem. So they can bundle differently on their platform, and they can also use content as a way to drive revenue from other services.

Subscription services for news and video have been in the works for some time.

Monday is going to be busy.

However, CNBC reported that HBO is not as far along in partnership discussions as these aforementioned networks, and it's unclear whether that will impact its availability on Apple's service. He noted that Apple tested the waters with shows like Planet of the Apps and Carpool Karaoke, which he said drove subscribers to Apple Music.

Apple's investment has already surpassed $1 billion on what industry pundits say are more high-quality, mass appeal shows from Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan, Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey.

With the Basic plan, Netflix restricts access to HD and Ultra HD content and allows users to view content on only one screen at a time. Instead, Apple's main focus - at least for now - will be helping other people sell streaming video subscriptions and taking a cut of the transaction.
