The Apple TV YouTube Channel

Inching ever closer to its May 2019 update, Apple quietly unveiled a YouTube channel dedicated entirely to Apple TV. Ryan Christoffel at MacStories said:

“Over the last few weeks Apple has quietly debuted a new YouTube channel dedicated to one of its services: Apple TV. The Apple TV channel is home to a variety of videos, like trailers for upcoming films and TV shows, exclusive behind the scenes clips and interviews tied to popular shows and movies, and, of course, videos highlighting Apple's own original content efforts, like an Apple TV+ trailer…”

We’ll be receiving the major update to the Apple TV app this May, but with Apple TV+ launching this Fall, it’s only a matter of time before we begin seeing trailers for Apple’s original content. Apple traditionally posts all of its product promo videos to its self-branded YouTube channel. Given the number of original productions in the works at Apple, it makes sense to keep all Apple TV+ promotional content confined to a specific YouTube channel, while keeping the company’s main channel available for the occasional iOS or macOS device promo.

Apple's Video Service Will Be Prestigious

Bloomberg reported today:

Apple Inc. is targeting prestigious awards for an upcoming slate of original movies and TV shows, demonstrating grand Hollywood ambitions for a video streaming service that will compete with Netflix Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and established studios, according to people familiar with the plans.

As Apple comes closer to their announcement date of their video streaming service, I’ve seen many Apple users compare the upcoming service to Apple’s previous dabbling in entertainment industry with projects such as Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps - both of which I’d consider to be gimmicky and amateurish. But despite these past projects, it’s clear that Apple has serious ambitions with this upcoming video service, so much so that now the company is apparently expecting to be considered for prestigious awards like the Emmy and Oscar.

Here are just a few producers, actors, and actresses involved in Apple’s $1 billion investment into their streaming service:

  • Steve Carell

  • Reese Witherspoon

  • Jennifer Aniston

  • Steven Spielberg

  • Octavia Spencer

  • Kristen Wiig

  • Jamie Erlicht

  • Zack Van Amburg

  • Damien Chazelle

  • Loren Bouchard

  • M. Night Shyamalan

  • Chris Evans

  • Rob McElhenney

  • Charlie Day

  • JJ Abrams .
