Two things:

1) I renamed this thread to just "Apple Services" instead of "Apple Services 2019". Makes more sense going forward.

2) This makes my day! Finally something on Apple TV+ worth my time. I love Tom Hanks, and for Apple to land this movie means I will get to see it on launch day, will be able to avoid pesky, overpriced theaters, and the whole family can watch it for freeeeeeeee!

Started watching Little America. Cute and interesting.

I think they’re doing a pretty good job. I’d say they eventually have a shot at eventually becoming the HBO of the 2020s. They don’t quite have a cult phenomenon yet, but come on, they’re only three months old. Give it a year or two and see if they steadily keep adding good stuff.
Started watching Defending Jacob and it seems kind of generic so far.

Since YouTube TV is a competitor to Apple TV+, I'll go ahead and ask this question in here.

Does anyone actually pay for YouTube TV? Holy cow, they just raised their rate to $65/month!

I have a difficult time finding value in anything of Google's, other than stock YouTube. Seriously, though, $65/month?

Used AT&T/DirecTV but switched to Hulu Live's bundle package awhile and love it. Big UFC guy so there's a lot of built in value.

I read that article about the price going up and was astounded. I too didn't even know it was a thing let alone that expensive!

I have AppleTV+ thanks to buying an apple product but I actually don't watch it either. In fact, I'm rarely watching TV at all. Even with the stay-at-home stuff (which my state seems to have completely thrown out) I don't have the time to watch TV.

Yeah, I watch a couple shows/week at most, so I'm pretty particular about it. Google TV has nothing compelling to offer, even at the imaginary "entirely free forever" price point. I get Apple TV+ for free because I bought a new Apple TV, but I got that specifically for Disney+. Most of the content I watch is on YouTube, so as long as it remains "free" (paid for by surveillance advertising ) none of the other services has anything of any value, especially at $65/month. Holy cow, what a ripoff.
