I really can't get my head around the negativity for Apple TV+, what exactly is the issue here?
If you don't enjoy what's available, then simply don't watch it, it really is that straight forward.

There will be plenty of people who do enjoy the shows and I'm sure it will be very successful for Apple. Good luck to them. People are so quick to put others down...it's pretty sad.

Some people believe Apple should cater exclusively to them, and anything aimed at people who are not them is considered a personal insult and a waste of time and resources.

I can. It's 2019. Toxic negativity is a sport. Moaning is a vice, and Apple TV+ is the new cocaine. It'll pass soon enough when the terminally boring find something else in which to invest their time whining about :rolleyes:

The chances of Apple succeeding in the overcrowded streaming market with their litany of mediocre, milquetoast, and politically correct shows is approximately nil.
I hear ya... Would be like Apple entering the crowded music player market. Or the mobile phone market; with a screen keyboard no less.

With that being said... I’m glad Apple is taking this so seriously. Very promising future for ATV+.
