WIRED says

โ€œItโ€™ll arguably be the companyโ€™s most important announcement of the year.โ€

but y tho

Some kind of Netflix type thing? Bold move.

Didnโ€™t they do an absolute slew of updates in October 18? Last yearโ€™s march event was an education event where the 2018 iPad was announcedโ€ฆ

Not exactly the biggest announcements from Apple last yearโ€ฆ

EDIT: Maybe if they are running with a TV/Entertainment Event we could see some interesting stuff.

They kinda pre-empted this with the tvOS updates last year.

Also canโ€™t help but think, if this is a TV Streaming service, that Spotify has just undercut them by offering Hulu as part of the subscription (US customers only).

Yes, itโ€™s been an open secret for a long time now

Thereโ€™s been a lot of talk about them being hands on with projects and having very clean standards:

They have already filmed loads of original content and have loads down the line the could be super interesting https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/taika-waititi-time-bandits-series-apple-1203160217/

Seeing some big names linked to new productions from Apple.

Iโ€™m not sure itโ€™ll be taking on Netflix immediately, but if the content is to a good standard and the pricing is competitive, nothing to stop it doing well in the marketโ€“much like the success of ๏ฃฟMusic.

The TV app they have now is a massive fail IMO and you should be able to delete it from the ATV 4.

There are too many TV apps out there and Sky/Virgin wonโ€™t jump over to Apple to provide a native app.

Too much against then for.

Almost Showtime , This going to be an interesting one and potentially the first event with no new hardware

(Peter Shillito) #14

Except AirPower?

Anyone?

Iโ€™m not sure Tim would want a product that is 1.5 years late to eclipse the keynote about new servicesโ€ฆ! Might encourage too much conversation.

If Sky & Virgin Media were on Apple TV it would be so worth while but I doubt it would ever happen.
