The new service will go live in the pre-installed TV app on Apple devices, and content owned or created by Apple will be free to view.

The report pegs Apple's 2018 investments in original content at a total of "about $1 billion" Dollars, and previous reports show the company looking to deliver a wide variety of family-friendly, PG content.

At least some of Apples upcoming TV shows will be made available for free in the ‘TV app on Apple TV and iPhone, according to report by CNBC.

While I'm a fan of Apple allowing us to access their content for free, I'm not sure how I feel about everything being integrated into one interface - though that may just be because I'm a dude on the internet and most dudes on the internet hate change.


Apple has revealed that 53 percent of iOS devices introduced since 2014 have already updated to the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system.

If the content will only be accessible through the "TV" app on Apple devices, that would explain why the tech company isn't too keen to charge a separate fee for access to the content. And the reason for that makes sense once you find out exactly how this new original content will be distributed by Apple. After all, customers will have to buy an Apple device in order to get access to these shows, and that's what's providing all the cash to pay for these shows anyway. Much like how channels work on Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV users will be able to subscribe to third-party services like HBO from within Apple TV. You won't have to open that service's individual app separately.

Thanks to CNBC, we now have our first details as to how we'll be able to access the Apple goodness. The company now offers "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" for free to all users of the TV app.
