Apple TV+

Apple's streaming service launches November 1 at 12:00 Texas time. It is competitively priced at only $4.99/month, but will have very limited content for a while. Best thing they have done in a while is give it free to anyone buying iPhone, iPad, etc. So free for a year for iPhone purchases. The reviews aren't very good so far from the media, but I still have hope that a couple shows end up decent. Unchartered territory here, but should be interesting to watch, apparently Apple has now invested $6 billion in tv shows. 

Worth a shot, especially for free for anyone buying apple hardware. See looks the most intriguing to me so far.

Got the free year with my phone purchase. Watched the first 3 episodes of The Morning Show and have actually enjoyed it so far. We’ll see where it goes, but I’m going to stick with it.

First time I saw an ad for Apple+, I thought it was a parody of some kind. Shows look meh. Although, The Morning Show looks to have potential with their cast (Steve Carell, Reese Witherspoon, Mark Duplass, Jennifer Aniston, and Billy Crudup). 

Edit: For all Mankind was the show I thought was a weird parody. I had forgotten the name until now. 

 

Seeing Jason Mamoa in a show (See?) looks intriguing, but I'll wait for reviews. Dickinson looks stupid af, but those are the only ones I've seen any commercials of since I usually skip them or don't pay too much attention. The others I had to look up with the list given. The wife and I won't subscribe since we already have Netflix, Hulu live, blah blah blah.

Ugh. I was afraid of that. All that talent squandered. Is it shitty writing, plot, or all of the above?

Jason Mamoa is like Fentanyl, best in small doses. The revolutionary war Indian show demonstrated that.

I wish they’d buy PlayStation vue and hbo instead of putting out these shows that I’m less than interested in.

They’d have to buy Warner Brothers if they wanted HBO.  

But that would give them 10 Harry Potter movies.  And all the DC movies.

Looks like Apple had a case of premature @Neonmoon, so if you are bored, drunk, etc, it is available now. I'm watching Jack Ryan, so will be a bit before I try it out. 

@Lobwedgephil, I’m going to take your mother out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again.

I have liked the first 3 episodes. I am going to guess if you enjoy it or not depends if you are closer to critics opinions or general audience. Here are the scores from rotten tomatoes.

It is so overwritten and overacted.

Reese Witherspoon is unwatchable and when did she bloat up lie a Mae West with a pulled ripcord? 

Her fake West Virgina accent and attitude make me want to watch videos on BestGore just to cleanse the palate.

I’ve got 12 months free of AppleTv and was watching trailers for the shows.  All have great actors and seem well produced.  But any buzz?  I am not bothering with Morning Show but Truth be Told and See looked promising.  Interested in thoughts on Servant, too.  
 

Given I had to bump this from Nov 10th, I think I know my answer, but still curious.  
 

I still think that Netflix is going to have issues keeping its subscription fee so low given it has no other revenue streams and spends so much on content.  Eventually, it’s market cap will drop precipitously, allowing Apple to buy it in the next 36 months given it appears Apple’s foray into original content seems to be a bust so far.

I’m enjoying Servant. Interesting premise with al out of WTF moments. lead actress is pretty annoying but I like the vibe so far. 
 

I wish Apple would drop all episodes at once, this whole week between releases old school model is frustrating on streaming services.

They’d have to buy AT&T if they wanted Warner Bros.
