iTunes Movies and TV Shows Kremlinology

Call it whatever you like — good logic, Kremlinology, or wishful thinking — but this theory from MG Siegler, about the clumsily-named “iTunes Movies and TV Shows” feature coming to Samsung TVs, makes a whole lot of sense to me.

A quick, related thought: imagine Apple does introduce a Netflix-competitive streaming video subscription; and, perhaps, a news subscription, too. A user may well subscribe to both, plus Apple Music, iCloud, and — perhaps — be on the iPhone upgrade plan, too. That’s a lot of discrete monthly payments. A universal subscription that covers, at the very least, all of Apple’s services would be far more elegant; I’d love to see that.
