Everything’s coming up Apples, or so it would seem looking at this week’s subscription headlines. In addition to Apple’s success with the news app and its plans to launch its own streaming TV service in 2019, MoviePass’s owner is spinning off the company to be its own public company, MoviePass Entertainment Holdings. Also this week, Fox Nation is premiering this month, digital news startup Scroll is already expanding and it hasn’t even launched yet, and publishers are abandoning Snapchat’s sinking ship.
