    In order for Apple TV+ to compete with the likes of Netflix and Disney+ they need a combination of original content and existing properties. Disney+ substantially increased their customer base just on the strength of their existing movie library. They only launched 1 original series last year ( Mandalorian) and will definitely compete with Netflix for streaming supremacy with the planned release of their MCU and Star Wars spin offs. HBO Max is also going to be a key player this year on the strength of their business strategy of releasing Warner Bros movies simultaneous to the cinema release ( Dune, Godzilla vs Kong, Suicide Squad, Mortal Kombat, Matrix 4). Apple is just not aggressive enough in either producing or buying (Greyhound) contents.

    It started as a character on a TV commercial then now Jason Sudeikis won an award for Ted Lasso. What a surprise!

    Not sure if we can call this a "tv" program but the premise is interesting and voice cast is impressive, Pedro Pascal is really everywhere these days but I'm more interested in the casting of Creep and Creep 2's (my favorite low profile films I saw un Netflix) Mark Duplass.

    Great season 2 for Servant. Sad that I no longer have something to look forward to every Fridays.

    Cherry. This film is all Tom Holland. From start to finish he’s in it and he doesn’t disappoint. It’s too long though in my opinion running almost 150 minutes. And there are times that when I see him I see Peter Parker but as a drug addict.

    I was planning to watch this over the weekend but got too busy so it's being pushed back next week. Good to know it's a long one beforehand so I can plan better ahead.

    Calls. A TV series made for iPhones and AirPods because it’s all text and visualizations on the screen, while the story is told more by the actors in the form of phone calls accompanied by suspenseful music. Episodes are short, it won’t drain your phone’s battery.

    Been meaning to watch, er, listen to this, but keep forgetting due to busy weekends lately. Hope to finally start it this weekend.

    It's like those radio drama shows in the afternoon. A lot of over the top acting with a Black Mirror style story.

    It’s fine. Episodes are short so it won’t take time finishing it. I liked episode 1 among the rest so far.

    Apple TV+ with highest rated content of all streaming platforms

    https://appleinsider.com/articles/2...hest-rated-content-of-all-streaming-platforms

    Quality over quantity for Apple TV+. Haven't been watching much tbh since Servant had its season 2 finale. But just found out today that Tiny World season 2 is now available and with special episode of Mythic Quest also premiering today, and season 2 next month, looks like my Apple TV box will be busy again aside from me playing Apple Arcade on it.

    IMDB ratings does not translate to revenue. They need to have both quantity and quality to be able to compete with the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, and HBO Max.
