Apple reportedly creating billion dollar budget for original content

Apple reportedly creating billion dollar budget for original content

The report further notes that Apple could add as many as 10 more TV shows to its offerings next year using the newly allocated budget. Apple's SVP of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue hired former Sony Pictures Television presidents Jamie Erlicht and Zack Van Amburg to run all aspects of worldwide video programming. Reports indicate that some of the company's top executives have held meetings with high ranking Hollywood agents and producers to hear pitches about shows they can invest in.

Now, a billion might quid seem like an outrageous amount of money but in comparison, streaming giant Netflix have a budget of $7 billion for next year so Apple still have a way to go if they hope to make an impact.

Additionally, making shows could prove very costly; for instance, Game of Thrones Season 6 costs $10 million per episode. The company could spend around $2 million per episode for comedy shows, or a drama for $5 million per episode, according to The Verge.

Apple could see more success by creating content similar to HBO's Game of Thrones.

Trump just retweeted someone appearing to call him a 'fascist'
Arpaio, who spoke in favor of Trump at the Republican National Convention, has a sentencing hearing scheduled for October 5. But if Trump hoped to gain any brownie points for finally condemning the violence in Charlottesville, it was poor timing.

But that era lacked a cohesive strategy, with various Apple execs involved in shows on a case-by-case basis, according to insiders.

Apple aims to double its service business, which includes Apple Store, Apple Pay and Apple Music to $50 billion by 2020.
