Lol, Apple finally realises only having their own content will not enable them to complete against Netflix etc.

 

No date available on when it will happen and if it’ll mean price increase. Apple TV Plus has about 10 million subscribers, but even during lock downs around the world only 5 million active. That’s with a lot of people having it free for one year. 

 

Also read at present they  have under 30 programs.

Yeah I didn't think they'd be able to feed it with only their own content.

The programming on Apple TV+ seems to feature a lot of product placement, so I'm guessing that was the main motivation for creating their own content. I always had my doubts as to whether that was sustainable though.
