Netflix, however, won't be a part of this as it wants people to watch its shows on its own platform. "We've chosen not to integrate into their service".

"We prefer to let our customers watch our content on our service", he said at an event attended by Recode.

Hastings noted that Netflix has already been competing with Amazon, so it's used to competitors with deep pockets.

Primarily a DVD delivery service in its early years, the Los Gatos-based Netflix made its first steps into streaming in 2007 when the AOL dial-up sound was still a recent memory for getting online. Apple is hosting a "Show Time" event next week where it will unveil its streaming platform service. These are awesome, large, well-funded companies with very significant efforts. However, Netflix doesn't really see teaming up with Apple for subscribers as an advantage.

"Apple is a great company".
