You'd do well to first find out what they're offering before deciding to be wowed or not. The market is probably a bit saturated with every studio and their dog splitting off and offering their own streaming service instead of sticking to the content creator only model. I suspect the current forerunners in streamers are bringing down prices so studios realise broadcast TV model and its revenue will soon die off and the only way to make money is when you control the entirety of the supply chain.With all the original content on netflix and hulu and amazon I can't say I am wow'ed by Apple's new 'innovation'
Not sure the current Apple execs have Jobs' clout to bring something like that as he was able to with iTunes (but that was probably also an easier time as the service was the first of its kind). Now, Apple have to contend with companies who see them as potential competitors - and they'd be trying to make money unlike how iTunes started as a loss leader for selling iPods.All I really want is for them to bundle the existing streaming services together a la carte and provide some kind of unifying interface and/or SSO. Give me HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Prime in one interface for $40-50 and I'll be happy to pay.
