Apple has been honestly protected when it comes to disclosing subscriber numbers for its Apple TV Plus streamers, so it may come as disclosure to acquire that the platform apparently has less than 20 million subscribers in North America.
Last week, CNBC reported that according to the spokesman for the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees said Apple said the union on its subscriber count as of July 2021, a number which, by law, would permit the company to pay behind the scenes production crews lesser rates than those salaried on Disney Plus or Netflix Shows.
That’s only because those rival streams claim around 74 and 38 million subscribers in North America, individually which clarifies that they are thankful to pay production teams a salary that meets a definite threshold.
The Association of Motion Picture and Television Producers “doesn’t even generate carve-outs for specific firms”, according to the spokesperson for the industry group revealed in the statement, and Apple also claimed that the firm pays rates equal to those paid to workers on other streamers.
Union discussions aside, though, this secretive less than 20 million subscriber figure discloses a comparatively new streaming service in undefined condition.
Analysis: It’s unfair to compare Apple TV Plus with others
Clearly, less than twenty million paying subscribers in the US-which could possibly mean anything from one to 19 million which is even not closer to Netflix and Disney plus as they have already more than 38 million subscribers each which are the almost double figure of Apple TV Plus, so there is no comparison at all.
The earlier, for example, expended nearly an era setting up its now remarkable library content. You will get almost the two most valuable IPs in moviemaking history like Star Wars and Marvel, which definitely attracts a huge number of paying subscribers at launch. Releasing the Disney animation library, too, offered Disney Plus terrific value and an easy sell.
If you will compare, its means remembering that Apple TV Plus is built upon unique and original content exclusively. That means you will not get any old cinemas and existing TV shows in Apple TV’s library, rather entirely fresh content like Ted Lasso, Mythic Quest and Foundation.
Recently we mark closely into the prominence of Apple TV’s fresh shows in more detail and found no doubt the subscriber numbers questionably don’t replicate the quality of the streamer’s content, it’s still tremendously not able to see a platform less than two years old which was launched in November 2019 with such original content based library.
It’s doubtful that Apple TV Plus will ever catch up with big streamers like Netflix and Disney Plus in terms of subscriber numbers, that much has long been clear, and even Disney Plus also facing difficulties to gain more American customers in 2021, according to a report. Its account of upcoming movies and TV shows will authorize there is hysteria-level curiosity in its content for years to come.
Overall if you compare, Apple deserves credit for getting its growing streamer as far as it has done in a short period of time, and the imminent onset of even more original content should see its subscriber numbers become easier on the eyes in the not too reserved future.
