    I don't understand the value proposition. Five bucks a month and they have no hook ... just rando, expensive shows.

    Most of the shows look terrible. The Momoa thing might be the dumbest premise I've ever heard. "Hey, let's make a television series that's filled Birdbox style idiocy."

    Also, ffs, Joel Kinneman needs to fire his agent.

    But there's no crossover there.

    Nevermind that Apple has a history of flopping when they wander from their core strengths.

    I guess it doesn't matter because they have money to burn, but still ... it's weird to see these polished ads for a service that looks anemic right from the start.

    ha, no worries.

    I'm mostly sitting here scratching my head at this announcement. Their steam like gaming platform is similarly odd.

    It also feels half baked. Are they also going to get other network shows on there too like Netflix? Or is it just going to be this random assortment of "original" programming.

    Yeah I've been trying to find that out.

    From what I understand right now, though, the answer is no. It's Apple shows only.

    Their launch line-up is like ... 9 shows. (All originals? Plus Oprah. I think they needed something like Star Trek Disco or The Mandalorian to convince people to slap down the initial 5 bucks.)

    Butt you do get the service free for a year if you buy an Apple device.

    I have a feeling they don't plan to make money with this. This is just a perk on why you should buy iphones over anyone else. They have so much money banked as you said, they dont even care if they make money from the subscription.

    The tricky part for them will be if other phones (like Samsung and whoever else makes phones and tablets today) just throw in a free year of Netflix or Disney+ when you buy a Samsung S37.
