Apple is unveiling its media offering tomorrow in a special event, and may be somewhat disappointed to discover that the Wall Street Journal has leaked the pricing for their upcoming services.

In the late leak, they confirmed that the Apple News subscription service will come in at $9.99 per month. This will offer access to over 200 magazines as well as newspapers like the WallStreet Journal.

In addition, they revealed that each “channel” in their video service will cost $9.99 also. These include video services such as Starz or ShowTime and possibly HBO also.

There may be an additional base-line service fee which has not been confirmed yet.

Apple is hoping to pivot from their hardware being their profit centre to services, but are running into complaints of anti-competitive behaviour due to a large number of services which are already at home on their platform and with whom they will now be directly competing.

The event will be live streamed from the Steve Jobs theatre at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET.
