The Netflix and HBO Apps are NOT being dropped, that would be suicide for any relativively expensive media player.
It's that they have restricted functionality when interacting with Apple's "TV" App which helps users track content viewing status and new content availability.

Apple wants to centralize such viewing data so you do not have to open each individual App to see new content and watched status. Netflix and HBO do not want to share such data - it's too valuable to those companies. In fact Big Data collection and analysis is one of the keys to Netflix's successful business.

Apple are also launching some sort of new video streaming service Addon functionality where they aim to allow users to subscribe to different streaming services all thru the one App. So theoretically you could channel surf such video streaming services all from within a single App.
