Rumors that an Apple streaming service was in the works have been running rampant for months.

While Apple has not confirmed anything, several news outlets reported Wednesday that “sources familiar with the matter” told them about Apple’s efforts being close to coming to fruition. The exact date varies, but it appears the rollout wil happen  some time in the spring.

Many had expected the announcement to be made during Apple’s Next Big Thing Event, which is scheduled for March 25, according to MacRumors.

Much hoopla is typically made about the event as Apple fanboys, investors and the curious wait with bated breath to see Apple’s latest gadget, or gadgets.

What’s in Apple’s Streaming Wheelhouse and What’s Blatantly Not

Apple’s streaming TV service will likely include subscription TV services from CBS and Viacom, according to Reuters. It reported that the service will also include Lions Gate Entertainment’s Starz.

Blatantly not in the lineup are Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. They are useless to Apple largely because it intends to offer its own original content. CNBC pointed out that in addition to these original content providers, HBO may not be included either.

Apple will offer its original content for free for device owners and a subscription platform for existing digital services, according to CNBC. Customers will be able to sign up for existing digital streaming products and watch them in Apple’s iOS TV application.
