Even Oprah Can’t Paper Over Apple’s Services Flaws

The iPhone maker’s big event highlights some half-baked ideas.By Shira Ovide

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Apple Inc. prides itself on craftsmanship and perfection. Even the desk chairs in Apple’s headquarters are worthy of their own article. That’s why it was so surprising that Apple’s new products for news, television and more feel so half-baked.
Over nearly two hours on Monday, Apple trotted out Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and Big Bird but left a lot of blanks. The company effectively introduced five products: a subscription to a collection of magazines and other information; an Apple-branded credit card; a subscription service for a bundle of video games; a Netflix-like subscription for Apple entertainment programs; and a revamped digital hub that pulls in Apple’s video service plus those from partners such as HBO.
Only one of those five, the magazine and news subscription, is available now, and it already existed under a different name and guise. It’s not unusual for Apple to get people excited about products before it is ready to sell them. For example, Apple announces each year’s new iPhone models weeks before they officially go on sale. 
Monday’s announcements felt different, however. Apple’s collection of digital products felt at times like drawings on napkins — sketches that were incomplete, not ready or not thought through to their eventual conclusion. If the bullish investment thesis about Apple rests on its competence to transition to a digital services company, Monday’s event put a dent in that notion. 
Apple showed only a scant few frames of its coming Netflix-like service, called Apple TV+, even though the company started developing its own entertainment programs two years ago. The company didn’t announce a price for Apple TV+, which maybe doesn’t matter because the subscription service isn’t coming until the fall anyway.
Apple’s digital entertainment hub, called “TV,” already exists as a single spot to see movies and TV series from companies such as HBO and the Spectrum cable television service — although many iPhone owners are not aware of this app. 
Apple is reworking it with the promise that it will be a truly single spot for everyone’s entertainment needs. It won’t be. It doesn't include Netflix or Comcast’s pay-TV service, for example. The new TV app appears to be a better interface on an existing app that many Apple device owners have ignored. It’s not clear why those people will start to use the TV app now — particularly before this fall when Apple says it will begin to release its original entertainment programs. 
To Apple’s credit, it realizes it needs this digital entertainment hub for non-Apple devices, too, and said people who use popular internet-connected TV sets and Amazon.com Inc.’s Fire TV and Roku streaming-video hardware will be able to use the TV app, too. The problem is the TV app is coming for those devices “in the future.” Whether that’s six months or six years from now, I don’t know. Apple may not know, either. 
Apple’s $10-a-month subscription to magazines and a selection of newspapers and other information does exist now. And it should. Apple News+ is a revamped version of Texture, a $10-a-month magazine and information subscription company that Apple acquired last year. There was confusion on Monday about the availability of the full spectrum of articles published by the Wall Street Journal, perhaps the highest-profile addition to the subscription service. That’s just one sign of how unpolished or unprepared Apple’s products felt. 
Apple’s Texture 2.0 is also available only in the U.S. and Canada for now and only for iPhone, iPad and Mac computers.1 Apple’s trumpeted subscription service for video games and its new credit card also appear available only for Apple devices. Yes, that’s still a lot of people. To quote Winfrey on Monday: “They’re in a billion pockets, y’all.” (Slight correction: Apple has said about 900 million iPhones are in active use worldwide.)
But the idea of Apple becoming more than just a device company breaks down when the company introduces digital services that are available only to the minority of the world that owns Apple devices. This is not the services-first company that Apple investors expect.
Apple could do very well with its new subscriptions, if and when they launch. A subscription for immersive video games seems like the most promising of the bunch. Video games are the most prevalent use of smartphone apps by far, and Apple’s heritage and relationships with popular game makers and game players give it a unique advantage in creating a video game subscription service. Google, Amazon and Microsoft are also working on or have announced video game subscriptions. Apple’s video game service is coming — you guessed it — this fall. No price was announced. 
The company’s typical high-wattage event papered over obvious shortcomings and unanswered questions about its new services. Maybe Apple is trying to do too many things at once and the multitasking left it unable to meet self-imposed deadlines. Maybe the company wanted to announce its products first and then refine the details with partners later on.
Most likely, though, the half-baked nature of Apple’s event shows that the company’s perfection in its traditional hardware stronghold doesn’t mean its prepared to be more than the iPhone company.

Articolo interessante su Bloomberg:



Apple's TV Splurge Just Adds to the Madness: Tara Lachapelle

A few billion here, a few billion there … how's that for "irrational exuberance?"By Tara Lachapelle

(Bloomberg Opinion) -- Get ready, TV fans, because the next few months are going to be wild. Apple Inc., AT&T Inc., Netflix Inc. and Walt Disney Co. are spending billions of dollars on so much new streaming content that there will be little reason to leave your couch this winter – or to keep your cable subscription.
Apple gave a taste yesterday of what it’s been working on by releasing a trailer for “The Morning Show,” an original series that looks so good it could easily be mistaken for an HBO production. With an all-star cast led by Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carell, Apple is said to be spending $300 million alone for the first two seasons. The company has committed a whopping $6 billion overall to produce original shows and movies, according to the Financial Times, which would match what Netflix spent in 2017 and would also be in the same ballpark as Amazon.com Inc.’s expected content investment for this year. Other outlets have disputed that Apple’s budget is quite so large. Either way, it’s clear the iPhone maker is serious about streaming.

The Apple TV+ and Disney+ video-on-demand apps will both be available by mid-November, followed by AT&T’s HBO Max product. They are game-changers for the pay-TV industry, already littered with live-TV streaming products from Sling TV to YouTube TV.
Disney has spent about $15 million per episode to make “The Mandalorian,” a live-action “Star Wars” series that will serve as the flagship of Disney+, according to the Wall Street Journal. That’s about $120 million for the first season, which isn’t far from what Disney shelled out for “Captain Marvel,” the third-biggest movie of the year in terms of U.S. box-office ticket sales. The company expects to invest more than $1 billion in original content for the app next year and another roughly $1 billion for licensed content.

These streaming wars are risky. Studio owners generally have a sense of what a TV program could deliver in advertising revenue and how large of a theater audience a film might draw. But Disney+ will charge just $7 a month and contain no ads. The company is betting it can build a large enough customer base so that all these pricey investments that have shareholders wincing right now will pay off some day.

In the Apple TV trailer above, Aniston’s character at one point says, “I just need to be able to control the narrative so that I am not written out of it.” It struck me as funny because that’s exactly what Disney and its peers are trying to do as they flood the market with content and turn a blind eye to the cost. Disney predicts it will have 60 million to 90 million Disney+ subscribers globally by the end of fiscal 2024, when the app finally begins making money. Analysts see Apple TV+ topping 100 million in the next five years, according to Bloomberg News. While both are starting from zero, they do have the advantage of strong, far-reaching customer relationships – Disney through its movies and theme parks, and Apple by physically being in most of our pockets already.

Netflix is protecting its turf by lighting it on fire. It’s projected to spend about $15 billion for in-house and licensed content this year while burning $3 billion of free cash flow. The company paid $100 million just to keep “Friends” on its platform through 2019. Even though the sitcom hasn’t aired new episodes in more than 15 years, it’s the second-most-watched program on Netflix. After this year, AT&T is reclaiming the rights to the show for its HBO Max product.
A little over a year ago, Casey Bloys, HBO’s programming chief, referred to such spending as “irrational exuberance.” But then earlier this year, his boss, HBO Chairman Richard Plepler, left the company in a shake-up by its new parent AT&T. HBO is now ramping up its production slate to reduce churn, or the rate at which bored subscribers are canceling, and HBO Max is reportedly paying $425 million to carry “Friends” for five years starting in 2020. Likewise, the Wall Street Journal reported that Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal has its own $500 million five-year exclusive rights deal for “The Office,” the No. 1 show on Netflix.

There is a potential fallacy in the companies’ thinking around these lavish deals: What if Netflix subscribers were streaming “Friends” and “The Office” for hours on end simply for background noise, something to mindlessly tune in and out of as they scrolled Instagram or did chores? In that case, perhaps users won’t necessarily miss those specific shows and won’t switch to other services at a rate that would come close to justifying nearly $1 billion for two old sitcoms.

In any case, I keep writing about the frustration of needing to pay for and toggle between numerous apps just to access all your favorite content and the confusion that comes with doing so. It’s only going to get worse once Apple TV+, Disney+ and HBO Max launch. But at least there will be no shortage of stuff to watch, and with all this money being thrown around, you know it’ll be good

Finora gli spinoff sono stati meglio dei mainline, quindi questo potrebbe essere figo.

EDIT: ah e' una serie, non un film... Vabbe' sfiga salta.

Beh ma è diretta da Jon Fraveau, quello che ha fatto Iron Man e Jungle Book per la Disney. Il protagonista dovrebbe essere Pedro Pascal (quello di Narcos e Game of Thrones). Se non ho visto male c'è Lando e Giancarlo Esposito (quello di Breaking Bad).

Il trailer vale anche solo per la voce di Werner Herzog  ;D

Comunque devo ancora capire un attimo questo servizio streaming della Disney.
Sicuramente le puntate verranno offerte con cadenza settimanale (bene), sicuramente ci sarà dentro materiale targato Disney/Marvel/Pixar/Star Wars...quindi sicuramente no FOX e tutte le ultime cose che hanno acquistato, ma non saprei manco di altre IP tipo Indiana Jones.
Resta da vedere come gestiranno il catalogo...dato che difficilmente sti stronzi metteranno a disposizione TUTTA la roba loro in una volta sola.

EDIT: no come non detto, a quanto pare sarà un mix strano.

Tipo questo articolo dice che tutte le stagioni dei Simpson saranno su Disney+, così come classici non Disney tipo The Sound of Music e The Princess Bride. Cose invece R Rated tipo Deadpool andranno su Hulu, controllato da Disney al 60%

Da noi comunque esce a metà 2020, quindi ne abbiamo di tempo per capire. Nel frattempo dovremo scaricarci tutto, che sia hulu, disney+ o cos'altro ci importa poco.
La cosa importante è che costerà meno della metà di netflix



netflix costa 191,88€ / anno  (15,99€ al mese)


ecco la timeline per star wars mandalorian:

Se guardi un video 720p su una TV 8K si. La TV che ho in cucina e' 720p e quella in sala e' 1080p. Entrambe vanno piu' che bene, le TV le usano praticamente solo i miei figli.
