One addendum, and maybe Apple can do this where others have been slow to adopt, 4k content! There is very little 4k content, and maybe that's because of the speed of evolution here with 8k already being manufactured making an investment in 4k content a short lived proposition. When will we jump to 16k resolution, far beyond the ability of the human eye to perceive, I wonder???
I am not interested until some monumental programming comes out that is unavailable elsewhere. I already have DirecTV, Netflix and Amazon Prime. There are very few Netflix or Amazon originals that I enjoy so I don't see where Apple has come up with anything different. However, if Apple can prove it has something I want in the way of programming, I will reconsider. But as of now, I DON'T WANT IT.

I already have a MacBook Air, an iPhone, 2 Apple TVs, an Apple Watch, Music, iCloud service, and subscribe to Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube TV on family plans as well as have my own Prime Video. I won't pay anything for it since I've spent a billion dollars on Apple products (happily) and have a full array of programming. In fact, every time "TV" on my Apple TV suggests something for me and then tells me I can rent or buy it, I go to one of my other services. It should be free at the touch of that little Apple "TV" icon for those of us fully engulfed in the world of Apple. They can feel free to charge everyone with Androids and PCs whatever they like : )
This must be bundled and include Live area programming. Option to add premium channels. On the level of Hulu Live and above. Price then must be competitive with the other services or there’s no need for me to switch.
Already doing Prime, Netflix, PBS and the likes of Tubi and Pluto for free wayback machines. Fact is there are only so many hours in the day for entertainment and I feel I already have plenty to pick from, my Watchlists are full, and that's still after dumping cable TV. I've been very pleased with my programming choices. Apple would have to 'show' me something(s) unbelievably top shelf.
For me to be interested, it needs to be offered as a bundle with other Apple services. If News, TV, Music and iCloud storage came as a bundle, I would be a player at $30 a month.
There's a few interesting prospects on the horizon with announced original programming but certainly not enough at this point to warrant any major investment as another service to pay for--certainly nothing that would warrant Apple's streaming service as something that anyone would use INSTEAD of existing ones like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Hulu. Time will tell how this all shakes out but absolutely no one is looking to pay for so many services that they will totally spend as much or more than cable. Value for dollar spent is still important plus there's only so big a pie to be cut up.
I Don’t think it will be a big hit sounds like another monthly fee with little to offer if they could package a variety for a good price but knowing Apple their price will be premium with a few good shows
