IPhone owners won’t have to pay to watch Apple’s original programming

IPhone owners won’t have to pay to watch Apple’s original programming

Until recently, it had been lumped in the same speculative basket as Apple HDTVs and Apple self-driving cars. Now the app allows users to easily access the entire library of streaming content available to them across the various apps on their Apple TV, iPad and iPod.

This new streaming video service will include content owned by Apple, which will be reportedly free for iOS and Apple TV customers via the TV app. The company is apparently planning to give away its original content for free to owners of Apple devices, according to CNBC.

That's a similar strategy to Apple's original TV content now. As CNBC reports, Apple will offer its original content for free to owners of Apple devices, including Macs, iPhones, and iPads.

Apple wants to keep its streaming service open to a wide audience, and plans to do so by curating shows that the entire family can watch together.

Earlier this week, Apple confirmed that it will be releasing season two of Carpool Karaoke: The Series for free via the ‘TV app, starting October 12.

Selena Gomez admitted after 'emotional breakdown'
Currently, Selena is receiving dialectical behavior therapy at a psychiatric facility on the East Coast. Gomez has frequently been open with both her mental and physical health, including her lupus diagnosis.


Last month, the Wall Street Journal reported that he had personally shelved Vital Signs, a show based on the life of rapper and Beats Electronics co-founder Dr Dre, because a preview episode had drug use and sex scenes.

Apple now has at least 24 original shows or movies in production, including content from Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, J. J. Abrams, and M. Night Shyamalan. For those of you who already have Apple devices, it looks like it'll be really seamless for you to access their content.

If Apple can find the next Stranger Things or Game Of Thrones, this service could have a real shot at supplanting Netflix in the lounge room - particularly if it provides access to the best content from rival streaming giants.

We'll be keeping a close eye on this one as it develops.
