San Francisco: Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has confirmed that the content-streaming platform will not be selling subscriptions to Apple's upcoming video services.
The iPhone-maker is likely to introduce its video-streaming services on March 25.
"Apple is a great company. We want to have people watch our shows on our services," Apple Insider quoted Hastings as saying in a Netflix press conference in Los Angeles on Monday.
Netflix is yet to adopt the most recent revamp of Apple's TV app for iOS, hence the Hasting's statement is not really unsurprising.
Defending Netflix's decision of not adopting Apple TV as yet, Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer at the content-streaming platform said that their intentions have been moving away from the App Store subscription fees, the report said.
