Ted Lasso might be their breakout hit for next year's Emmys. You cannot help but smile while watching it even if you hate sports like me. Also, Morning Show has a knack for being topical and has rewritten their 2nd season to tackle COVID related stories. Look for nominations for at least these two shows next year.

Having worked in Hollywood the reason your computers and phones and tablets made by Apple will continue to rise in price is that production costs for these shows are extremely high. And there are many that won't make a profit, in my experienced opinion. The one savings is the distribution process. How will these shows make enough money. Aren't we already inundated with Hollywood, Netflix, HBO and others???

How else to offset the costs of production than pass it on to the consumer of Apple products.

This is a longer term play. We're now entering the hot phase of the streaming wars. The various players pump a lot of money into content right now to establish themselves in the SVOD market, which is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years as more and more cable TV customers cut the cord. Good for us consumers, since a lot of high quality shows are coming to the market. A second golden age of TV. ;)

Of the nominees I have only watched Defending Jacob and Morning Show so far, and they both deserve it IMO.

Then go and see what Samsung offers
I was referring to Apple TV+ since that is the focus of the thread. And contrary to your belief, other people don’t have to think the same way as you do on this subject. A person can have many Apple products and not agree or like every single thing Apple does; like me with this topic.

I assume “Greyhound” wasn’t eligible. I’m a little surprised that “For All Mankind” wasn’t nominated. It had some flaws but was still the only Apple series that interested me (with the possible exception of “Foundation”, which no one’s seen yet).

But I’m not really a television kind of guy — I prefer books — so my opinion doesn’t count for much.

I've been enjoying some of tv+, but I hope this promotion doesn't stick around for too long.

For one, the typography here is hideous. Is this a perfume commercial for hipsters?

And two, the top navigation bar is now broken for me. Gee, thanks. Not like that's important or anything.

I. haven't watched everything on Apple TV+ but everything that I did watch was top notch... unlike Netflix which is 50% crap.
I gave up Netflix years ago. I have tried several shows on Apple TV+ that looked like they would appeal to me but, it didn’t pan out. Hopefully, that changes before my free trial is over. Otherwise, I won’t subscribe.
