Apple’s subscription TV service will launch a global launch in more than 100 countries, according to a report on Tuesday, as tech giant appears to challenge Netflix’s dominance in the spacecraft.
The information reported that Apple’s platform will roll out globally within a few months of its U.S. launch, which will occur in the first half of 2019. Subscribers will have access to original Apple content, as well as content from other TV networks that require a secondary subscription and an unspecified lineup of other shows and movies.
Apple refused to comment.
On launch, Apple’s subscription service will be behind the global range offered by Netflix and Amazon’s Prime Video service. Both services are available in more than 1
90 countries, according to the information.
Apple has committed itself to $ 1 billion to develop its original content in 2018. However, the iPhone manufacturer is expected to outperform the budget. The company has already signed an agreement with Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and various other Hollywood personalities.
Apple is one of several companies trying to challenge Netflix. AT & T is monitoring HBO with an eye to streaming audiences, while Disney will launch its own branded streaming platform 2019.
