Ok, so...

Amazon HD - lossless CD and even higher quality masters streaming

Apple Music - still that old 256kbps AAC (which was originally a good idea for mobile purposes)

Apple, you know what to do next...

Isn't Hulu and Amazon both integrated in the TV app?

Yes.
And?
Each company does what they think is best for their company, or at least they are suppose to.
Because X and Y does a particular thing does mean Z will do the same.
Whether that's smart or not the future will tell.

Here's what Hastings has to say on or around 3/18/19:
"ON WHY NETFLIX CONTENT WILL NOT BE ON APPLE’S NEW VIDEO STREAMING SERVICE:
“Apple is a great company. We want to have people watch our shows on our service, not their service.”

Whatever that means.

From the NY Times, same time frame:
Mr. Hastings explained it at a Netflix event earlier this week: “Apple’s a great company. We want to have people watch our service — or our content on our service. And so we’ve chosen not to integrate into their service, because we prefer to have our customers watch our content in our service.”
The key word here is “service.”

Put it another way: Netflix is a service, or a pipe, that would sit on another service, or pipe, if it agreed to be included in the Apple bundle. And if it had joined forces with Apple, Netflix also would have received little to no data about who is subscribing or watching its stuff. Further muddying the company’s identity, from the Netflix point of view, would be the fact that Apple users who spooled up “Stranger Things” or “Orange Is the New Black” may not be aware that they’re watching a Netflix show. Retaining the brand is as important as owning the data.

But for real what Apple could do is to gather terrestrial signals around the world and let me watch my channels through the great Apple-designed UI without any antennas or deals with local companies. With recording to iCloud, etc.

They could also let you use this interface for custom IPTV implementation :P

IPTV API? :)
