Apple Shows Off Original Series For First Time With Sizzle Reel

What we do know is that Apple TV+ will feature original shows and movies from some of Hollywood's most creative talents, all within the Apple TV app.

Jennifer Bailey, vice president of Apple Pay, speaks during an Apple product launch event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park on March 25, 2019 in Cupertino, California.

Apple has confirmed the Apple TV app will be coming to the Mac soon and that an iTunes Movies and TV app is slated for Samsung TVs, and will eventually be available on TVs from Sony, LG, Vizio and others, along with Roku and Amazon Fire devices. Those include Spielberg, Aniston, and Witherspoon, as well Oprah, who is creating two documentaries for Apple TV Plus.

Apple Arcade: Will it work on other platforms?

"This is what we call now the battle for the lounge room", futurist Steve Sammartino told 3AW Breakfast.

The company is not expected to directly rival the likes of Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime.

Here's more on Aniston and Carell's return to TV - Aniston starred on Friends while Carell was on The Office - as well as more of what what we learned from the Apple TV event.

Through the new Apple TV app, users can subscribe to Apple TV channels - including HBO, SHOWTIME and Starz - and sports, news and network TV from cable and satellite providers. Now Apple is getting in the subscription game, with Apple News+. Boasting a curated library of full games, Apple Arcade will not just be for games that came out on the App Store in the past, but new games from famous designers such as Will Wright (Sim City), Ken Wong (Monument Valley), and Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy) will also be coming to the platform.

The company also laid out the details of its news subscription service, Apple News Plus, and a new credit card.

Apple is launching a new service called Apple TV+ with a focus on high-quality original shows.

In contrast to a 15 per cent drop in phone sales reported in its most recent quarterly financial results published at the start of the year, Apple's services revenue was up 19 per cent to around £8.3 billion.

A physical version of the card is also to be launched for use in locations where Apple Pay is not accepted.

Apple is finally revealing some more information about its much-anticipated streaming service, but today's announcement may leave people with more questions than answers. Other cards also offer cash-back rewards.

The card will sit in the Apple Wallet of Apple Pay and be used for contactless payments or online purchases on iPhones, iPads and Macbooks.

One new aspect of the app is a dedicated kids section, which clearly took some cues from Netflix's children's UI.
