News publishers battle tech giants for better deals.

News outlets currently pay Apple 30% of their first subscription revenue through iOS apps, this fee drops to 15% after the first year of subscriber use.

At the same time, Apple makes a discount for Amazon.com Inc.

At a House Judiciary Committee hearing last month, Cook revealed that the preferential rate is available to any developer who has met certain conditions..

Publishers should be eligible for the same terms offered by Amazon for its Prime Video app on Apple’s app store, DCN CEO said Jason Quint in a letter to Cook on Thursday.

«I ask you to clearly define the terms that Amazon satisfies for its agreement so that DCN member companies who meet those terms can be offered the same agreement», – he writes.

«Apple’s unique marketplace has a strong impact on the ability to continue to invest in high-quality, reliable news and content, especially in the face of competition from other larger companies», – noted in the letter.

Letter mentions talks between Apple veteran Eddie Cue and the CEO of Amazon Jeff Bezos, during which the two companies agreed on a 15% revenue-sharing deal for new customers registering for Prime Video through the app store. The letter appeared during a hearing before the judicial committee on July 29.

This all happens days after Apple removed Epic Games. «Fortnite» from its app store for violating in-app payment rules, which prompted Epic to file a federal lawsuit challenging the decision.
