    Apple today announced its TV subscription service, Apple TV+, at the Steve Jobs Theater in California. This is the long-rumored service that will host Apple's original television shows and films, and be located within the revamped Apple TV app.

    Apple says that Apple TV+ will be the home for "the world's most creative storytellers," and it will feature original TV shows, movies, and documentaries. As we've learned over the past few months, original content partners include Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, J.J. Abrams, Jason Momoa, and more.
    Apple says that the service will launch in fall 2019, and that pricing for the subscription service will be announced at that time.

    This is another one of those services that will get a few days worth of original content, before stars involved stop giving a **** and move to Netflix.

    The irony is that Apple’s original TV content is probably post-produced on Windows PCs, because there hasn’t been a decent professional Mac for filmmakers in 6 years. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #BringUsMacPro

    Probably too early to judge right now, but that's a lot of announcements about subscriptions...

    Or it might grow and give others the opportunity to create content besides studios.

    Soon to be three, and we all know how MR readers just love subscriptions!

    Obviously the execs do regularly monitor blogs and forums... It's the subscription show!

    The presentation reminded me of Tidal’s launch with all of the celebrities. That star power didn’t do a whole lot for them.

    Might be getting old, but all these announcements today just confuse me mostly. I don't know what is what, just that there are a lot of subscriptions that I should be paying for monthly probably.

    You clearly haven’t worked in creative companies with rows and rows of lined up iMac Pros.

    High-end post-production facilities do not use iMac Pros. iMac Pros simply don’t have the power and modularity we need. So I’ll turn your comment on yourself: you clearly haven’t worked at real post-production facilities with rooms and rooms of Linux and Windows machines, running on NVIDIA graphics.

    I think this movement into original content is Tim Cook’s New improved Coke moment.

    I bet most of it will, at best be bland, and at worst Apple pushing certain narratives. A big turn off for many.

    from my understanding, region rights are very hard to work with.

    You must be dreaming if you think think these creators haven't been given access to special and/or pre-release Apple hardware surrounded by a bunch of NDA's!

    This is the messiest Apple event ever. It’s all over the place. The game announcement immediately lost its impact when they said it won’t launch till the fall. Why not just announce and release it with iOS 13? The celebrities introducing their shows was boring. Spielberg and the Pakistani actor had me dozing off. My soul left my body when Big Bird showed up.

    Edit: the previews for the shows looks boring.
