Time Warner Inc.'s HBO reportedly spent around $2 billion previous year on its own shows, and Amazon Prime Video plans to spend $4.5 billion in 2017.
There is no reliable information on how Apple plans to disseminate these shows, though Apple TV - or a new dedicated channel on it - makes the most sense. In their capable hands, the company no doubt hopes to unleash multiple hit movies and TV series that could soon propel Apple firmly into elite status in the streaming video world, and compete with titans like Netflix and Amazon Video.
