News Corp expands Apple News licensing deal

You will continue to get access to publishers like the Wall Street Journal through Apple News+ in the future. Apple has signed a new deal with News Corp which could make it this way for a while.

News Corp’s CEO, Robert Thomson has confirmed that the company’s long-awaited deal with Apple is finally in place.

Thomson mentioned that the new trade agreement covers a number of more important aspects compared to the old version. Some details were not provided though.

Riposte’s CEO, Josée Thomson, said that they’ve extended and expanded their multi-year global agreement with Apple in an interview with Press-Gazette.

The deal is expected to carry subscriptions and advertising revenue for Thomson’s news sites around the world.

Tim Cook and Eddy Cue, the CEO and SVP of Services respectively at Apple, were praised in his comments.

“There is no doubt that Tim Cook and Eddy Cue have a sophisticated, profound understanding of the importance of professional journalism and we greatly appreciate their commitment,” Thomson continued.

While no real details of the deal itself have been confirmed, it will probably offer Apple News users more than they’re used to. A 2019 deal with News Corp led to the Wall Street Journal to become one of only two major publications to sign up for the Apple News+ subscription.

News Corp says that they have seen slow but steady results from their Apple News+ subscription, which have not only caught the Journal’s attention, but also that of its competitors.

Apple News+ is available for free and contains content from The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, and The Sun.
