Big tech news: Apple just got serious about TV
Apple has launched a television and movie streaming service, Apple TV+, to take on Netflix, Stan and Amazon.
The launch was the centrepiece of an event at Apple’s California headquarters overnight.
It will see set-top boxes and most smart TVs include the Apple TV+ app, much like the Netflix app.
Apple has already commissioned programming from Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.
Apple TV+ will launch in spring this year and is tipped to boast an enormous selection of content.
