Looking forward to the release of Apple TV +? Know that you are not alone (and I am not talking about myself). The CEO of NetflixReed Hastings can't wait either, but he has his concerns (obviously), according to a new report from Variety.
Hastings's apprehension wouldn't be for less: besides Apple TV +, the Disney + It will also be launched in November, meaning Netflix will have to samba so as not to lose subscribers to either of the two prosperous (and giant) services. Knowing this, the executive stated that it will be “a whole new world from November” and that Netflix will have a “tough competition” but that the company will continue to follow its strategy of offering TV shows and movies “that people simply love ”.
Although we have competed with many people in the last decade, it will be a whole new world from November, between the release of Apple and Disney and, of course, the expansion of Amazon. It will be a tough competition. Customers will have many options to choose from.
Amid the emergence of so many new services of streaming Hastings pointed out that the costs of producing TV shows in this niche will increase thanks to companies such as Apple and Disney, which now also vie for “valuable production space in much-sought-after areas”. According to him, one day the investments in the series The Crown (which may not be one of the most expensive of all, but are among the most costly productions for Netflix) seem like a "bargain".
Remember that Disney + will be released on November 12 with a huge catalog of movies and TV shows from the film giant, including productions from some of its largest subsidiaries, such as Marvel, Pixar and National Geographic. In addition, Apple will offer a free year of subscription for its service when purchasing an iPhone, iPad or Mac, while Disney will provide three years of subscription for the price of two.

When (Prince Harry) met Oprah Winfrey and realized his shared passion for mental health, the idea for the series was born. And he's been around ever since, with the Duke organizing numerous meetings in London with Oprah and helping to select the creative team behind it.
For now, we know that the series focuses on breaking down the stigma and shame surrounding mental illness by showing examples of people who fought the “darkest feelings of their lives,” as Prince Harry puts it. The Duke's goal of production is to help save lives:
If viewers can relate to the pain and perhaps (the participants') experience, this could be life-saving as we focus on the prevention and positive outcomes of these cases.
Harry also says that he and Oprah felt a huge responsibility to "get it right", especially since mental health is a proximate topic of the Prince who revealed in 2017 how close he came to a "mental breakdown" after the death of his mother. , the Princess of Wales Daiana, who died in 1997.
