Both Apple TV and Netflix are investing heavily in the product is lure customers
Disney Life, Disney’s own much-hyped streaming service are also focusing on building its service, but at this point, Disney Life is not being made available in the UAE.
Netflix, the OG, upped the game bypassing movie theatres with its own original movies, and by bringing new releases to your TV in a shorter time-frame. And now, only after a short span in theatres, (sometimes only two weeks) Netflix will host big movies on its platform, all in an attempt to reel-in and retain its customer base.
And Apple TV is doing similar.
‘The Morning Show’ is an Apple original show
Starring Jennifer Anniston and Steve Carrell, this is touted as being the show of the season.
More of the shows which will become available on Apple TV are listed on its Twitter
