Apple is reportedly taking a hard line with publishers during its negotiations for a proposed news subscription service. According to the current info, this new service will cost $10 per month and will allow Apple customers to have access to content from a variety of news outlets.

According to Buzzfeed, Apple's event is scheduled for Monday, March 25th at the Steve Jobs theater.

Publishers are threatening to revolt against Apple's planned subscription news service before it has even got off the ground in anger at the proposed financial terms stipulated by the technology firm.

But there's more coming at this special event, aside from just news.

Sources tell Bloomberg the Apple video service will include the latter's original TV shows and movies or those funded by the company, with a paid service set for a summer debut. The paid service will launch by the summer, the people said.

BuzzFeed reported on Tuesday that Cupertino is planning to hold a services-focused event for on March 25, where the company will talk about its new services.

But this new service would combine content from news services who lock their content behind a paywall. The good news is there are reports that Apple plans to offer the content for free to Apple device owners. The company has also historically taken a 30 percent cut from app sales and one-time in-app purchases for as long as the App Store has been around.

We've asked Apple for comment and will update this story with any response.
