Apple TV Plus has been launched this Friday with just a bunch of original programmes. It is not so suitable for the viewers who are in dire need to escape from the satellite TV bills and hefty cable and not at all ideal for the cord-cutters.
Apple TV Plus has got its demerit as it lacks the very treasured old shows as well as franchise films which could have created nostalgia among the viewers.
Disney Plus has got brands like Star Wars and the Marvel. HBO is no less with the very popular “Game of Thrones” and the DC Superheroes. With all these, Apple TV Plus would most probably be regarded as the improbable underdog and the highly pedigreed.
Jamie Erlicht and Zach Van Amburg, the heads of global video for Apple are daunted by the optimistic and comparisons about the Apple TV Plus’ streaming future. According to Van Amburg, the team has been working with some of the most big-time talented people in the entertainment industry. Instead of just building an enterprise, the expert team is aiming for tech giant Apple. The best work is expected by anyone working under this prominent brand.
Jennifer Aniston starred drama; The Morning Show’s showrunner Karry Ehrin considers this as a tremendous opportunity to be a part of such a grand launch. According to Aniston, it is fascinating as well as refreshing to be a part of something so spectacular at its initial stage.
Apple TV Plus’ subscription costs around $4.99 a month and can be used by six members at a time. In case you buy a new Apple device such as iPhone or iPad, you get the Apple TV Plus’ streamer free for one whole year. A seven-day free trial is also available for all the users. Its competitors are numerous in the market with Disney Plus being $6.99 monthly, HBO Max being $14.99 monthly, Hulu $5.99, and Amazon Prime Video and Netflix cost around $8.99 a month.
Around 80 percent of the viewers are worried about the streaming experience and its expensiveness. According to research, customers prefer to subscribe to a standard of four streaming channels or services and pay about $42 per month for them.
Netflix being the streaming leader has attracted about 160 million subscribers globally. Apple, on the other hand, has struggled a lot to reach the peak of the TV market.
