Apple wants to remind you Arcade exists

  Apple wants to remind you Arcade exists Apple was a no-show in the flurry of Super Bowl ads, but it made its presence felt seemingly everywhere else. The tech giant launched a full-on ad blitz for Apple Arcade shortly before the football extravaganza got underway, including a takeover of its home page where game characters invaded the usual product promos -- you probably weren't expecting Sonic to ever race around a MacBook Pro. There were a number of straight-up commercials, too, such as a TV spot showing all the ways you could play (including in the grips of a sewer monster) and a mock livestream from Oceanhorn 2's hero.

YouTube TV, the live-channel streaming service from Google's video giant YouTube, is pulling out of Apple's in-app payment system. It would make Google the latest tech giant to withdraw from the payment system built into iOS apps, after the system has raised complaints for its fees and the built-in competitive advantage it could give Apple's own services.

You're currently subscribed to YouTube TV through Apple in - app purchases, so we're writing to let you know that, starting March 13, 2020, YouTube TV will no longer accept payment through Apple in - app purchases. YouTube TV members will still be able to watch YouTube TV content on Apple devices.

Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

In customer service emails, YouTube TV told members that it would be ending payments through Apple on March 13. If an account pays its monthly bill via Apple, that account will be automatically canceled on the first billing date after March 13 unless a new form of payment is set up.

And at $50 a month, YouTube TV is a pricey subscription to be forfeiting that fee.

YouTube TV's decision follows moves by both Netflix and Spotify , which years ago stopped accepting payments through iPhone or iPad apps. Generally speaking, Apple charges a 30% fee in the first year of a subscription for any memberships signed up through an iOS app. That fee drops to 15% after the first year.

YouTube may offer sign-ups for premium subscriptions like Showtime

  YouTube may offer sign-ups for premium subscriptions like Showtime YouTube may take a cue from Amazon and Apple in letting you put all your streaming services in one place. The Informationsources say YouTube has spent the past several months talking to "several" streaming providers about allowing sign-ups for their services through YouTube. While there's no mention of names or how far along the talks might be (YouTube declined to comment), this would go well beyond the handful of services you can sign up for through YouTube TV, like Showtime.The reasoning would be familiar. Like Amazon's Prime Video Channels or the Apple TV app, this would turn YouTube into a central hub for your online viewing.

Apple has been facing intensifying scrutiny over how its App Store fees and policies treat services, like Spotify, Netflix and others, that compete with its own. The App Store is the biggest moneymaker in Apple's services business, but the fees and rules governing apps have grown thornier as Apple launches more subscription services like Apple TV Plus and Apple Arcade.

YouTube TV doesn't directly compete with a current Apple service, though Apple's own TV app does act as a storefront to sign up for various streaming options. Adding a wrinkle to the development: Google's own Play Store also charges fees on in-app payments made in Android apps.

Last year, Spotify lodged a complaint with Europe's antitrust watchdog, saying Apple uses its App Store policies as a cudgel to stifle Spotify, the main competitor to Apple Music. Europe's antitrust body, which has doled out billions in fines against Google, reportedly planned to launch a formal investigation into Spotify's complaints.

Apple Card holders can skip March payment due to impact of coronavirus .
Following Apple's decision to close all of its retail stores outside of Greater China until March 27th, the company is taking further action in the face of the spreading coronavirus -- it's allowing Apple Card customers to skip March payments without interest. As revealed on Reddit and reported by MacRumors, Apple Card customers have received an email explaining, "We understand that the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 situation poses unique challenges for everyone and some customers may have difficulty making their monthly payments. Apple Card is committed to helping you lead a healthier financial life.
