    Amazon doesn't offer discounts to the channels it offers compared to what you would pay if you just subscribed just with HBO, for example -- if Apple can offer lower prices than you would otherwise pay, that would be a big competitive advantage
  • Shara Tibken 3/25/2019 5:57:44 PM
    "Everything I'm watching is here in Up Next. ... I get my cable from Spectrum, and I also have Hulu and Prime Video. It's all here in the Apple TV app.
