Apple, the first trillion dollar company as we know it, has stuck to it’s roots to make something that is truly theirs. Apple has been trying to get into the video streaming and original video content market for quite sometime now which will allegedly debut in early 2019 according to recent reports from CNBC and various other leaks.
According to all the information and some mild speculation we think that the original Apple video content platform and all the related things that come with it will be available for free to all Apple device owners. Apple plans to push their service to all their device owners, to compete with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, which will still be a challenge.
The fact that Apple might be giving all this content to already existing, as well as new Apple device owners is probably the biggest selling point of this service. It may be paid for users who do not own an Apple device. If it gets big enough, it might become a good reason to own a Apple device. This can surely be the tipping point for prospective consumers to switch to an Apple device.
Already existing Apple device owners will be delighted that they will be getting some high quality content for free because Apple has reportedly spent $1 billion on original shows this year and reports also state that Apple is targeting PG-rated shows for now to appeal to a wider audience for its free original content.
I am sure that with creativity being the roots of Apple as a company, they will be able to put out some amazing shows and content. With the budget allotted to the project, we are bound to have some amazing shows. Here’s to hoping the service is open to everyone and with pricing that is considerate.
