Apple TV+ takes on Netflix and Amazon

25 March 2019 / 18:46GMT

After yonks of speculation, Apple has officially unveiled its TV and movie streaming service. With names like Steven Spielberg (who has definitely never publicly bashed straight-to-streamer movies that get nominated for Oscars before), JJ Abrams and M. Night Shyamalan on board, it’s already clear that Apple TV+ will have some significant exclusive offerings, which is great news for your already bruised bank balance. In addition to TV+, Apple also unveiled a redesigned Apple TV app, which will make it easier to find recommended shows, and by partnering with a host of third-party content providers that can be accessed on-demand within the app, the aim is that you won’t need to head elsewhere to watch a different show. That is, unless it’s on Netflix. We await details of the UK rollout.
