Anyone else feel like ATV+ is getting a LOT better here lately? I was lukewarm to it at best when it launched, but between this, the new Tom Hanks film, that new animated sitcom from the Bob's Burgers creators, etc, Apple is really getting out some compelling content imo

The funny thing is that you’re not the only one. I said it from the beginning... So many people are so quick to judge Apple an immediately ruled ATV+ out.

A few weeks and a few months go by and people start changing their tune. Like, I get Apple makes mistakes and is far from perfect, but did y’all really think this platform wouldn’t take off? Lol. They invested sooo much money into it and brought in so much talent.

At least some of you can admit that you were wrong, which is nice.

Apple is really going after it. Thought was going to be too late of entry but some good decisions so far. This series seems to be take on ESPN 30 for 30.

I have no doubt that Apple will have a great catalogue but I think most people will view other companies as better alternatives from the size of their offering.
What I don't know is with these streaming wars, how does one choose which streaming service to go with once all of them have a large catalogue? Does one subscribe to all of them at different points in the year and binge watch and then cancel subscription and move on to the next streaming service and keep cycling through them?
That’s actually what a lot of consumers do. Netflix reported an uptick when the new season of Stranger Things premiered last year. With so many available now, and new services on the horizon (HBO Max, Peacock, etc.), That’s probably the smartest way to do it. Unless you or your family is watching content on all of these services at the same time...people save money by cycling through them.

That’s the great thing about these streaming services, you can cancel and re-subscribe at your own will depending on what content do you want to watch at any given time!
