The application with which Apple wants to compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, among others, is finally starting to shape up. As Apple revealed today, unlike other streaming services, the Apples’ one would permit iPhone, iPad, and MacBook users to watch movies and original Apple series for free.
Similar to the recently launched Huawei Video platform, Apple wants to release a streaming platform that provides varied multimedia content to its customers. Accordingly, the American tech giant plans to offer movies and Apple original series for free for every iPhone, iPad, and MacBook user.
Thus, in case you’re using an iPhone, for example, once the Apple streaming platform goes live, you’ll be able to watch movies and original Apple series for free.
Apple streaming service to offer movies and original Apple series for free but only for its customers
Apple is preparing a new video streaming service that will combine original content and third-party services from traditional media companies, that is, more or less similar to what Netflix is offering on its platform. In this way, the owners of at least one Apple device, such as the iPhone, iPad or Apple TV, to name a few, will be able to access the upcoming service for free.
As previously announced, Apple is working on its own production series and probably on some movies, as well. These contents will be included in the new Apple streaming platform for free, but only for the those who own at least one Apple device. In this way, we will have a mixed service with free Apple movies and series and paid content from other services such as HBO.
At the moment there is no estimated date for the launch of the Apple streaming service, but spokespersons of the American brand have suggested that the app could arrive early next year, along with the several updates for iOS and TvOS.
