I've really, really, really been enjoying access to the content that's there for free now from those with paywalls such as WaPo, WSJ, Bloomberg, etc. I'm assuming these are test runs and that Apple must be paying them for this or maybe those companies are seeing some other benefit from having a presence already.
I'm fairly sure I'll pay $10 per month for additional access. It's easy and gives me access to really awesome articles. For the last few years I've been bouncing around paying serious cash for access to individual publications. I can't stomach paying for more than one so just choose one at a time. Having this subscription service means that I wouldn't have to choose.
It's clear this is going to focus on video but just raising my hand for news subscriptions, please! I love reading news and analysis. It's prohibitive subscribing to all news sources and I just end up rotating between them from year to year. That just means I have to pick just one for a while and while that's nice enough it would be simply awesome to have a wider range of sources especially for political news where there are so many views or international news where you also need more breadth. I would even accept *some* limits on how much I can read from each source, say 50 or so views a month, rather than 3 or 5 or 10. (50 might be low so it would be nice to have more though even 50 would be reasonable for starters.)
