It’s that time of the month - Chuck Joiner and I reconvene to discuss Apple TV+. On this episode of “TV+ Talk” we finish off our chat about “Shrinking” before analysing the recently released “Silo.” We finish off by looking at the… mixed… reactions to “Killers of the Flower Moon,” which has finally premiered at Cannes. However, most of us are going to have to wait a little bit longer to see it.
I found the discussion we had about the importance of TV series vs movies really interesting. I do think that it is hit shows that encourage people to keep their subscriptions, while movies get people to dip in. That’s certainly true in my case! Apple TV+ is though building an impressive catalogue of movies, which certainly adds to its appeal.
One issue that seems to be affecting other streamers but not Apple TV+ is content removals, normally conducted in the name of cutting costs. Apple’s service can resist this. There simply is no motivation for it to remove originals. While the quality of content is key, if consumers start noticing shows and movies they want to watch on other services are no longer available, it could benefit Apple TV+.
