Yesterday during Apple’s earnings call, CEO Tim Cook talked about the future of their TV efforts. In the call he talked about the Apple TV and their AirPlay 2 efforts but when it came to original content and their plans to launch a Netflix competitor Cook declined to comment at this time.

Apple has for some time been striking deals to get original content from a variety of partners including Opera. It has been reported that Apple plans to launch this service by mid-April. I wouldn’t take Apple’s refusal to talk about the service today as any indication of issues or delays. Apple has a long history of waiting until the last second to make an announcement on a new service.
The only questions now are when will the service launch, what devices will it support, and what will it cost.
