Apple TV+ coming later this year...

Recommended Posts

"Introducing Apple TV+, a new streaming service where the most creative minds in TV and film tell the kinds of stories only they can. Featuring original shows and movies across every genre, exclusively on the Apple TV app...."

 

https://www.apple.com/au/apple-tv-plus/

 

is email I received, I know there was something in the news as well yesterday in announcements. was all a bit busy for things to take in, but looks like something to take netflix on head on. given hollywood 4k movies seem to be disappearing from netflix  I'd say netflix is likely going to have a problem with apple soon.

 

be interesting to see what comes about. pay per view ? subscription service ? rentals ? free ? not sure seen anything else to indicate what exactly is coming ? 

 

according to this article apple is not building a netflix killer its building something bigger ? 

https://www.theage.com.au/business/companies/apple-s-not-building-a-netflix-killer-it-s-building-something-much-bigger-20190326-p517n4.html

 

"Apple is not so much building a Netflix killer,  as it is building an Amazon-style everything store of content for its 1.4 billion device users.  The more content its device users get through Apple, the more it makes in commissions. And the more likely those users are to stay locked into the iOS ecosystem and buy another Apple device, when the time comes.

 

As interesting as the new shows sound, they appear to be loss leaders designed primarily to get (or keep) Apple device customers using its "TV" app.  In turn, Apple is positioning the TV app to be a central, curated hub, the main portal through which users access video; some of it Apple's, most of it from other producers.~"

Yeah, it's app is the central hub  by Netflix won't be allowed.  It will be interesting to see how they go, they're obviously a massive company, but Netflix has a strong foot hold, and I know many people who are happy just with that.  Netflix won't be allowed on AppleTV+.

Actually it's the other way around, Netflix is welcome as are all providers that the whole point a one stop shop, they have declined as they dont agree with the fee that apple will take ( 305 first year and 15% after that)  -  time will tell.

 

The big threat to Netflix and the reason that 4k movies are disappearing is the merge of Fox and Disney - they will reales there own "Netflix killer" streaming service this year as well.

Who the heck is going to be joining up all sorts of streaming services. We have Netflix and amazon prime as is and don’t use either enough ! Can understand if apple provides done sort of hub if it brings all together ... can imagine if all join in and Netflix doesn’t they’ll loose big time !

If Apple are releasing it, it’s bound impact the hip pocket.

Remember when Apple was once the innovator and industry disrupter? Now they just seem to follow.

Will see if tv+ is a game changer or just a different flavour or what’s already out there.

Netflix is losing me though, hardly any big block buster movies make their way to my screen via Netflix! Some of the Netflix original content is good but most not worth watching.

 

Be interesting to see what happens with Apples offering, I'm all in Apple as far as devices and computers go but gee they have a habit of being very late to the party!

 

Maybe the Fox/Disney streaming will be the best for movies in Australia??

One service in one app appeals ; indeed if the Fox/ Disney combined catalogue makes it to Stan who have the Disney contract it wont be at the apple pricing model thankfully ..

And being owned by channel 9 whats the chances they will acquiesce to the apple model and join ? B)

Apple will even have a news channel ; enough alternatives already I suspect these days..

I noticed some Apple TV app installed itself on my iPhone (without asking me first)

We are Apple, you will assimilate.

The Apple TV remote app has been upgraded and has a new icon, that is probably what you are seeing. The Apple TV+ app probably won't be released until closer to launch date - probably the US launch not the Australian launch.

I don’t see anything happening with the streaming services we currently have in Australia but I’m interested how they will offer their own content.  They might just need to sell their programmes like they already do with iTunes movies and tv shows.

 

In any case, how is this supposed to be a Netflix killer? Are they adding a catalogue of movies as well as their own content?

I have not obsessed over this like many others would have but my take is that apples big launch is more about selling Apple TV hardware than anything, that's effectively all they have to offer video streaming at this stage because they have been asleep at the wheel for years.

 

As far as unique content they are about 7 years behind netflix and a few years behind amazon so like thier music streaming it's just a sad afterthought because unfortunately now people don't spend $20 on a movie!

 

The way they beat Netflix is by having the hardware and dealing with every other streaming service to convince all of us plebs to sign up to multiple streaming services so thier tv app can be the shining light and bring it all into one place to showcase and enable search for all your streaming apps at the press of a button.
