The increasingly hot market for online video sharing will take a different turn, as the beginning of the week gives an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) event where it will reveal a video streaming service with some key details still in the dark – even from partners. The tech giant will probably allow device users to subscribe to several current available streaming services (such as HBO (NYSE: T), Showtime and CBS All Access (NYSE: CBS) and Starz (LGF.A, LGF.B)) and watch them in one single app, along with some original Apple content. However, it may differ from the Amazon channels' a la carte approach (NASDAQ: AMZN) with a bundle discount. But pricing and the nature of the packaging is a close, sustainable secret for now. The World's Most Valuable Company Shadows Into What It Hopes is a comfortable seat at a table with ambitious flowing plans on the road from WarnerMedia (T) and Disney (NYSE: DIS) and everybody involved keeps an eye on Netflix (NASDAQ: NFLX) .
