For some time now we have heard that Apple was getting close to launching their new subscription TV service. Now according to The Information Apple plans to launch the new streaming service in the first half of 2019.

According to reports, Apple is spending about $1 billion on content for their on-demand streaming service. This includes partnerships with stars like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. According to CNBC, the new shows will be added to the Apple TV app that is currently built into iOS devices.

As for Windows and Android owners, you may be out of luck. So far there have been no leaks about Apple’s plans to offer their service outside of their devices. Yet it is possible they will offer a paid version for non-Apple device owners. As best we can tell Apple is hoping their TV service will push the sale of more Apple devices.

A few weeks ago The Wall Street Journal published a report from inside Apple’s team that is building their new Netflix competitor. According to that team, Apple’s new streaming service will be bland and is being called an “expensive NBC.” Apple wants to keep their programs focused on shows with a broad appeal and family-friendly feel. With the content being automatically added to all Apple devices, this family friendly feel makes more sense.
