Gradually, the details on how Apple should implement its upcoming (and gigantic) service of streaming take shape. A few weeks ago, we talked about the possible renewal of the TV app, which would offer Apple device users its original series catalog for free viewing; today the The Information arrived to complement this information.
The publication supports the prediction that the Apple video service will first reach the United States, sometime in the first half of 2019; the news is that, according to the report, more than 100 territories they will also receive the platform in the following months – a considerable achievement, considering that this type of undertaking involves a series of complicated contracts and complex negotiations with the regulatory bodies of each country.
Other details are “confirmed” by the The Information, such as the assumption that Apple will broadcast its series free of charge to all users of the TV app (at least initially) and that Apple intends to sell subscriptions to other platforms within its streaming, gathering all the content that the user may want to have access in the same place.
These negotiations with major players in the market, such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, would be ongoing – and, in this case, should vary from country to country.

As Apple’s plans take shape, more weight names are being added to their series. Today the Variety reported that the Oscar nominated actor Steve Carell joined the unnamed series that will star Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
The Apple series represents Carell’s return to the small screen after the role that enshrined him – it is the actor’s first regular appearance in a series since Michael Scott, the protagonist of the American version of «The Office».
As we have already informed, the series – which already has two seasons confirmed, with ten episodes each – will revolve around the production of a morning show, offering a behind-the-scenes view of «the people who help the USA to wake up in the morning». Carell’s character will be one of the anchors of the fictional program, which will struggle to adjust to the increasingly volatile media landscape.
More information about the launch of the series – and the platform itself streaming da Maçã – should appear soon. How’s the animation out there?
