    For all the bluster, Netflix has yet to make one thin dime of profit. Think about that and let it sink in.
    Huh?

    Netflix profit is also growing at an astounding rate: The first quarter had its biggest profit total yet, topping the previous period’s record, and Netflix forecast another record-breaking profit total in the current quarter. Netflix reported $290.1 million in net income for the first quarter, more profit in three months than the streaming giant had for the entire year of 2016. As was noted in the MarketWatch live blog, if the company meets its second-quarter forecast of $358 million in profit, it will earn more in the first half of 2018 than all of 2017, when it reported an annual profit of $558.9 million.

    Do you think they will launch little by little, kinda like with the 808 documentary, and a little thing here and there. Or do you think they'll be launching with a boom? Like.. "Hello. These are our new TV channels. We have everything. Boom!"

    He sanitized product lineup kills it for me.  I wish Apple the best nevertheless.  
    There are numerous places to watch soft or hardcore porn, watch human beings mutilate each other with graphic violence, blood spurting everywhere, headshots galore, disembowelments, throats slashed. I am glad Apple has chosen to be classy about it.
    I really agree! I will bet you a million bucks that audiences are positively starved for good content that isn’t completely dark and depressing. The picture industry has gone so far overboard with mean and nasty fare. Made worse by arbitrary non-endings. I get tired of wondering why I wasted the time watching. Not even good stories, just excuse to trot out another fistfight/car chase. Believe it or not those endless fight scenes (10 minutes?) put me to sleep. I’m lucky if there is a dark character study at least.

    i have heard that writers need to use more negative adjectives and language to keep a story moving, but is that really true? I’d like to see someone experiment with this. There ARE more negative adjectives though. 

    These new shows couldn’t come at a better time either. Yet another reason I love Apple.

    1) Are any of these shows available from Apple? I'm not up to speed on anything Apple as of late...

    2) Why is this article from June posted on Aug 23rd? Has it been updated with 'the latest and greatest'?

    1) I've been out of the loop, too, but I think the only shows that they've released are Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps. No drama series at this point.


    2) Yeah. They've updated it with new info instead of creating a brand new article and forum thread.

    Delayed content to go with their delayed products.

    2) Which shows have been delayed?

    Now I know that actresses name: Jane Krakowski. Every time I see her, all I can say is, "man, Nina Hartley sure looks good these days." 

    AI is a continuous source of info. Thanks.

    These are some of the freshest and most original ideas I have ever seen. And they are family friendly!

    Look out HBO. You're about to get Appled!

    Whenever Apple enters an idustry, they change it forever  and then take all the profits.
    Apple Ping!

    Foundation! Loved this as a kid. Let's hope they smash it. Also, Amazing Stories. This is looking promising. Time to update my TV from version 1.

    Content will no doubt be produced in 4k but I wonder whether also 8k, even as an investment in the (not too distant) future. Anyone familiar with bandwidth requirements for 8k?

    The problem with Apple's strategy of only offering G-rated content is that they are forcing people to watch only that content.  Netflix, Hulu, Cable, Broadcast TV, Premium Cable Channels, and Satellite providers all offer a range from G-rated content to R-rated (or TV-MA) content.  We have the freedom of choice to watch what we want to watch. If there is something you do not like, don't watch it.  It is that simple.  Apple's approach of G-rated content only takes away that right of freedom.  Hey Apple, can you offer this show on your service?  No...we will not allow you to watch that show because we think that show involves some amount of sex, violence, or a profane word, so we are not going to allow you to watch it because we will not offer it.  Remember the uproar when the re-release of E.T. the Extra Terrestrial removed all the guns and replaced them with walkie-talkies?  Thankfully the fully restored Blu-Ray edition restored the original film.  People have become too butt-hurt and politically correct in this world.  Don't show that, you might hurt someone's feelings.  All those shows look totally boring and dull.  Take Star Trek for example.  Apple would not allow that show because it involves people being murdered and vaporized.  So enjoy the Apple-sanitized programming.

    I'm looking forward to that myself. Will be really interesting to see their approach to that massive storyline.

    People whine about G-rated and how it's not going to be viable but the Hallmark channel brings in $431M.  Lifetime is $875M.

    Not my cup of tea but there's money there and there is plenty of G-rated content I would watch like Foundation.

    Since Apple isn't taking away access to Netflix or HBO the assertion that "freedom" is somehow at stake is simply dumb.

    Are Hallmark and Lifetime really G-rated? I have the impression that Lifetime has a lot of stuff about cheating, abusive, and murderous husbands and boyfriends.
