At an Apple special last March, news was shared that Apple would launch a Netflix-like subscription service, and we provided you with details about these services. Other details about the service, called Apple TV+, continue to appear every day.
Apple spent a total of $6 billion on its original content on Apple TV+, according to a report by the Financial Times. In fact, this number does not surprise you. Apple announced that it had spent $15 million on only one episode of See, starring Jason Momoa. In general, when we look at the content on Apple TV+, we come across some very important names from Hollywood. Apple’s original content includes notable actors such as Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, as well as veteran directors such as J.J. Abrams and even Steven Spielberg.
Apple is considering creating an original programming library to compete with more established companies such as Netflix. In fact, Apple’s budget is well below Netflix, which plans to spend $15 billion on original content this year. But more generous terms of payment help the tech giant win a deal in Hollywood.
However, looking at the money Apple spends, disney’s digital platform, Disney Plus, which is scheduled to be released on November 12, is in fierce competition. However, the fact that the company is making such an expenditure would be correct to say it is the right move for the platform to be launched soon. Because based on the audience, it is not difficult to predict that after a good output the content will be continuous.
In addition to costs for content, other details of Apple TV+ are gradually becoming clear. For example, if you’re in Apple TV+ is said to have a monthly subscription fee of $9.99, Bloomberg reported. In short, Apple will charge Disney $3 more for subscription fees. However, despite this $3 fee, who will prevail in the digital broadcasting race will be determined after the launch of Apple TV+ and Disney Plus. We’re looking forward to it.
Finally, Apple TV+ will be available in more than 100 countries.
