Apple Video will it really be a success? The bad news is linked: after analysts who do not believe in this new streaming service, compete head-on with Netflix, announcements that provide almost no exclusive content for the launch of the platform and the most recent article from New york times, it’s scary! The latter has indeed revealed that Apple would have finalized only 5 series, while Apple Video will be officially presented on March 25 (in a week).
However, six other series are currently being finalized, in the “post production” period, which is slightly more reassuring. Among them, the series with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, the thriller of M. Night Shyamalan (The Village, Split, The Visit) and the remake of the cult series Amazing Stories of Steven Spielberg (ET, Ready Player One).
During the evening of March 25, many stars should come to support the project, such as Jennifer Aniston, Steven Spielberg and JJ Abrams. And that is what it will take to give a chance to this difficult and unpredictable project. If many partnerships have been signed between Apple and production companies, such as A24 Films and Oprah Winfrey Network, Apple’s desire to practically not include violence or sex in its programs will go against even what made the success of Netflix. We therefore hope that the service will be offered at an unbeatable price.
