    I'd say Apple should have bought HBO when it had the chance but they likely would have ruined it so I'm glad they didn't!

    What is "beyond belief" is that Apple thinks anyone anywhere is going to subscribe to an all-originals service.

    I always thought a trailer was supposed to be edited specifically to really engage the viewer and make them go "oh that looks great, when is it on?..." Guess nobody told Apple.

    69 seconds of my life I won't get back.

    I'm curious if Apple will bundle Apple News+, Apple TV+ and Apple Music for one price.

    The trailer really didn't do anything for me, but I'll certainly check it out once released.

    I'm not particularly interested in another streaming service, but with those three leading I'm tempted to check it out.

    Wish they would have come up with a better name than "Apple TV+" for their streaming service though.

    The difference between when Netflix came up and now is that there was content out there to license. All that content is moving back to the owners streaming services now. If Netflix came out today it would never have reached the same level of usage because it could not be built on the back of licensing all the popular content like Lost, Friends, and The Office.

    And that's the problem they have now. They will slowly bleed licensed content until they have to stand on their own. A majority of the watched NFLX hours are rumored to be licensed content (duh) because the quality original Netflix content is sparse.

    Creating original content is hard and extremely expensive. Apple can spend for it.

    Disney already has it.

    Apple, make it 19,99 for Apple Music, Arcade and ATV+ Bundle and you have a deal.

    Pleas Disney doesn’t have a single original idea. Only so long they can remake their old films and sooner or later the Superhero movies will get old.

    It's only a teaser if it's about something people are actually interested in. Otherwise the term for this is "annoying ad."

    The Newsroom would like a word with you.

    Not when everyone is keeping their content for their own streaming services.

    Because it's a teaser. It's not trailer. Teasers are cut to build intrigue/mystique, they don't usually give much away. Furthermore, Steve Carell and Jennifer Aniston's voices are pretty unmistakable in this. And that's not even mentioning that technically their faces are indeed in the teaser.

    Who owns more quality content than Disney? Disney's library of content is unmatched.

    Disney has been about the only company that proves they can consistently execute (monetize) content, regardless of how they get it.

    I admire the naiveness of Tim Cook and Apple execs; to consider they can compete with Disney (incl. The Simpsons, Marvel MCU, Star Wars, Mickey Mouse, Disney Classics, Hulu and ESPN) and with Netflix.

    If Netflix, who has been the key player and an established one, should be shaking that Disney+ is coming; I don't get Apple's move.

    No way I'm paying a streaming service for a series I can download on Pirate Bay

    You must have a lot of stuff if you'd rather steal instead of paying for things you don't want.

    Disney and Apple TV + aren't ready and should wait another full year when they have enough content to justify launching. Disney Plus is launching with just one show and a few Marvel movies. Apple TV is launching with just a few series. This is ridiculous. I appreciate Warner for waiting until next year to launch HBOMax. What's the big rush to launch this stuff this year when neither service has enough content to justify it. And at least HBOMax will have DCUniverse, CW, WBTV and HBO Backlog stuff to tide people over. Disney isn't even going to give us their full backlog right away.

    No, it's not "beyond belief" that a company has not announced the price of a product or service that isn't for sale. It's not even unusual.

    Leaving aside the Channel BT discussion, I think you are broadly correct. Rather than be concentrating on being the best platform to watch content from any streaming service, Apple has decided to compete with them. This is the brain dead sort of **** that the MBA types running cell phone carriers have tried on, forgetting they are essentially big dumb pipes. Well Apple isn’t dumb, but it got where it is today by selling a perfect marriage of OS and hardware. You make content from stuff you bought from Apple, buying the content from them too may not end well if the real content providers tell them the get lost, like Netflix is starting to find out.

    Edit: At this point, the best way to monetise this would seem to be offer the service free with every new iPhone or Mac, or just as part of the Apple Music subscription, at best maybe with $2 extra. it doesn’t look like enough on its own, unless you get the entire iTunes movie and TV show catalogue as well, which is unlikely.

    I'd have agreed with you if I hadn't seen The Newsroom. I think this show could be pretty gripping.

    Disney has Fox and ABC. Content wise, Disney is very much ahead of Apple TV+ and arguably HBO.
