Streaming content provider Netflix posted a significant loss of US subscribers following launch announcements from Disney, HBO and Apple. Today, NBC Universal has joined the bandwagon with a release set for April 2020.
Steve Burke, CEO of NBC Universal has detailed that their new streaming service will be launched almost simultaneously with Warner Media's HBO Max, and a few months after Disney + and Apple TV + go live.
Stream service specifications are not revealed for NBC Universal's plans, but we can expect The Office to jump from Netflix to NBC after the series deal ends next year. Content for the new streaming platform will come from external sources, more specifically from UK telecommunications company Sky and Sky Studios.
Apple TV + is set to have an autumn launch, featuring teasers and previews of original content such as For All Mankind, Snoopy in Space, Watch and others doing the round. The prices have not been revealed yet, but it is only a matter of time before they are announced.
