Apple launch its Netflix competition: Apple TV Plus

Apple TV Plus

The whole buzz around Apple streaming service is finally here and carries the name Apple TV Plus with the Plus moniker differentiating it from the Apple TV service. Apple has spent a few billion bucks creating its own original content and recruiting stars like Oprah Winfrey, Jason Mormoa, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston and more to do that. That said, the launch event which took place in Steve Job’s center was focused more on services rather than devices with Apple shedding it release portfolio in the weeks before like the Airpod 2 release, iPad & iMac series update before the “It’s Showtime’ event. Some of the service launched by the tech giant includes Apple News Plus, Apple Card and Apple Arcade.

This service is scheduled to be launched towards the end of the year if everything goes well and would be available in over 100 countries. Also, it will be rolling out a new Apple TV app in May and a new Apple TV Channel too.
