While Apple is planning to preview its rumored streaming TV service at an event that’s set to be held on March 25, a launch may not happen for several months.
According to sources that spoke to Variety, Apple will announce the service in March, but it may not be available to customers until the summer, or as late as fall.
Apple has more than two dozen original television shows in the works, many of which have already been cast. It’s not clear if filming has started, but holding the launch of the service until at least some of the shows are available would make sense.
Apple has not yet announced its March 25 event, but multiple rumors from well-respected sites have indicated that’s the date when it will be held.
The March 25 event will be focused on services, and Apple is not expected to debut new hardware even though there are multiple rumors of products getting a spring refresh.
