Apple isn’t just out here trying to fight in the streaming wars. The tech giant is just trying to end them. Signing DiCaprio and Scorsese is huge.
It’s literally impossible to overstate how big of a deal this is. We’re talking about two generational talents with decades of incredible work on their resumes.
Now, they’re taking those talents to Apple.
As you all know, I’m a huge fan of the streaming wars. Whenever a streaming company pulls off a move like this, it forces other streaming companies to up their games.
Netflix has fat stacks of cash, and you can guarantee they’ll continue swinging for the fence. That much is guaranteed.
After all, we’re talking about the company behind “Ozark.” They’re going to absolutely try to one-up this move from Apple.
The streaming wars are always good news for the consumers, and Apple just took things up a notch. I can’t wait to see how this forces everyone else to get better.
There’s never been a better time to be a fan of TV.
