Apple has been investing heavily in original content for its long-rumored TV service. It has now announced an event for March 25th where this service is expected to be announced. A new report mentions that most of Apple’s original content won’t be ready in time for the launch. This means that the service will largely rely on third-party content initially.

Bloomberg reports that much of Apple’s original content is not going to be ready at the time of the service’s launch later this month. Apple is expected to show some teasers on stage but the launch lineup will mostly consist of third-party content.

For this reason, Apple is in talks with a variety of content providers, including premium cable networks like HBO and Showtime. They have reportedly still not decided if they want to be a part of Apple’s service and have to reportedly make a decision by this Friday.

It’s not known at this point in time if Apple’s service will offer some or all content from these premium networks. Many of these networks have their own streaming services and it’s already possible to access their libraries from the TV app on iOS devices and the Apple TV.

Official details on the service are obviously slim at this point in time. Apple is expected to reveal more details about the service at its March 25th event.
