iTunes Chief Eddy Cue Says Apple Will Share Details on its TV Plans in 'a Little Bit of Time'

Apple iTunes chief Eddy Cue today spoke at Variety's 2018 Pollstar Live event in Los Angeles, California, where he discussed Apple Music and the Music Business with Variety Executive Music Editor Shirley Halperin.

Cue's talk wasn't streamed live for viewers at home to watch, but several attendees shared Cue's major talking points on Twitter.

Unsurprisingly, some of the discussion focused on the HomePod, which is officially launching this Friday. According to Cue, the HomePod will use its built-in A8 chip and AI algorithms to automatically adjust the bass, treble, and other settings on a song-by-song basis, so there won't be a need for users to fuss with settings.

In fact, Apple is confident enough in the HomePod's ability to make these adjustments that there are no built-in options to allow users to manually adjust sound.

Cue didn't want to share information about Apple's upcoming original programming plans, despite the fact that the company has inked deals for eight TV shows so far. He did, however, say that we may hear "a lot more" about Apple's plans in "a little bit of time," suggesting Apple will share details on its television goals later this year.

Details are light on the other points that Cue covered in his talk, but should more information surface on what he had to say, we'll update this post.

Eddy is a safe pair of hands at Apple. He's in control.

Psh. Cue needs to exit, badly. I feel like the services under his leadership have tanked in quality.

Apple's TV plans are already imploding. Bryan Fuller just left the reboot of Amazing Stories because of creative differences with Apple. Apple wanted it to be family friendly, Fuller didn't:

Cue gonna Cue. Playing hardball with creative talent by insisting the content they produce is family friendly is going to blow up in his face.
Maybe - maybe not though. I’d love to watch some of the Netflix series shows but as many of the ones that seem interesting are riddled with profanity and unneeded nudity/sex I stay away from them. There is still a segment of the world who enjoy entertainment more when those things are not present. I for one appreciate Apples effort for “family friendly” content.

It doesn't say anything about family friendly. It says he wanted to make black mirror, but what they bought was amazing stories, a known quantity. He didn't want to make the show he and spielberg sold to apple, and he has a long history of flaking out and leaving or getting kicked out of jobs.
