Apple TV Plus vs Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video

follow

Apple TV Plus is a video subscription service that will feature Apple's growing list of original TV shows and movies. When it launches this fall, Apple TV Plus will be the exclusive way to watch that content. And Apple has poured money into forming a star-studded roster of talent working to produce programming that can hopefully stand equal with Netflix’s best shows. Even Oprah’s on board.

But Apple TV Plus is not its own app or a separate experience. It will actually be accessible through the Apple TV app on iOS, Mac, and other platforms. It will likely have its own dedicated tab or section of the TV app, but Apple didn't go into the specifics on that at today's event — and the website on Apple TV Plus is extremely light on details. The best we got was a short glimpse of an Apple TV Plus row with flashy animations during today’s keynote.

Apple TV Plus vs Netflix vs Amazon Prime Video

Netflix is an online movie rental service. It was started in California in 1997. It allows members to rent movies on DVD or Blu-ray, and also watch movies and TV shows online with a computer, game console, smartphone, or Internet-connected TV.

Amazon Prime Video is an Internet video on demand service that is developed, owned, and operated by Amazon. It offers television shows and films for rent or purchase and Prime Video, a selection of Amazon Studios original content and licensed acquisitions included in the Amazon's Prime subscription.

In the UK, US, Germany, and Austria, access to Prime Video is also available through a video-only membership, which does not require a full Prime subscription. In countries like France and Italy, Rent or Buy and Prime Video are not available on the Amazon website and Prime Video content is only accessible through a dedicated website. In some countries Amazon Video additionally offers Amazon Channels, which allows viewers to subscribe to other suppliers' content, including HBO in the United States.

Apple TV Plus is different from both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. Apple TV Plus is a subscription service with only Apple originals. Unlike Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, you don't get access to a back catalog of licensed shows or movies.

Lists of the apps and devices that will support Apple TV Plus in the coming months:

Like Amazon with its Fire TV devices, Apple already sells streaming hardware and offers a built-in Apple TV app for iPhone and iPad. Apple TV devices will, of course, support Apple TV Plus. But the company announced today that the service will be available in the newly redesigned Apple TV app, coming to multiple platforms later this year.

Since Apple TV Plus brings users a more video enjoyment choice, if you want to enjoy Apple Music and other streaming music service on Apple TV, Apple Music Converter or Spotify Audio Converter Platinum will give you wonderful solution.
