you guys are right. without back catalog, the service is probably DOA.

plus the limited devices that are allowed to stream.

let's wait and see whether this is yet another cautionary tale where even if you got the cash, you cannot enter an already well established and also competitive market with nothing much to offer.

because this is not going to be pre-iPhone smartphone era where everyone was lost and doing their own thing.


or people are really interested to watch well produced and expensive TV shows.

Don’t even know when Singapore will get it. Unlike Apple, Disney doesn’t seems to want to focus on Singapore since we are not even part of their release.

Disney+ is e most compelling one to me.

Apple will be able to attract all the big guns for their Apple TV+ unlike Netflix. Just look at how Steven Spielberg snubbed Netflix to produce his own series for the Apple TV+. Don’t forget Apple has a good relationship with Disney and might surprise you with some partnership down the road.
