Apple acquires the rights to old tv programs and films to expand the catalog of Apple TV +
Apple is buying the rights to old tv programs and Hollywood movies to expand the catalog of his service straemaing Apple TV +. This move would put the service in a better position to compete with the huge libraries available on Netflix, Hulu, and Disney +.
According to reports from Apple, the company plans to keep its streaming service to the television focused on the original programs and has not purchased the large franchises or hits to his catalog. However, it finally seems that Apple has acknowledged that streaming services successful like Netflix and Disney + tend to have a mix of old and new shows.
Netflix, for example, has thousands of titles from which a user can choose from, while the Apple TV + currently has less than 30 movies and original programs in its catalog. As pointed out in the report, however, at 4,99€ per month, Apple TV”+ costs half the price of a subscription to Netflix standards.
Another advantage of Apple TV + compared to its rivals is that it is free for a year to anyone who purchases an Apple device, and students who have a subscription to Apple’s Music can also log in to the service sithout additional cost.
Although approximately 10 million people are currently registered to the Apple TV, only half of them have actively used the service. In comparison, Disney + has registered over 10 million users on the day it was launched in the United States and since then has grown to over 50 million subscribers. Netflix has 182,8 million subscribers all over the world, making it one of the largest entertainment facilities in the world.
Today’s news suggest a turning point for the company’s plans for its streaming service.
