And less than 12 hours later, we sold out in the US. (There's still stock available in Canada though!)

NEWS: Apple TV, Apple TV+, and Apple TV Channels Demystified
 
apple tv announcement
 
Apple held its spring announcement event earlier this week and despite the cavalcade of celebrities, it was a bit of a let down for cord cutters.

Apple announced two new streaming TV products: Apple Channels and Apple TV+

Starting in May, Apple Channels will allow cord cutters to access, purchase, and manage subscriptions to a number of popular streaming TV sources including HBO, Showtime, and Starz directly within the Apple TV app.

Apple TV+ will be the home of the company's original content. Although it'll be a paid service, a launch date and pricing weren't announced. 

However, Cordcutters.com argues the biggest news of the day wasn't either of these but instead its partnership strategy

 
By allowing competing hardware manufacturers to access Apple Channels and Apple TV+ both directly and via Airplay 2 on Smart TVs as well as streaming devices from Roku and Amazon Fire TV, the company is dramatically expanding the potential reach of its programming. 

It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out for Apple over the coming year...
