Hot on the heels of Netflix and Amazon now comes word that Apple will be joiningÂ the crowd.
I don’t think that’s the right move for Apple.
Just like having Cupertino produce a full-fledged car from scratch up sound like just too much diversification producing movies and television series is better left to pros.
However, Apple excels at diverting content. And now Apple is teaming of with networking juggernaut Cisco for faster downloads and uploads for iPhones and iPads.
Following in the wake of Netflixâ€™s success with original programming, sources withinÂ AppleÂ have beenÂ reported to be reaching out to studio executives in regards to creating television shows andÂ moviesÂ exclusively distributed byÂ theÂ Cupertino-based company.
DetailedÂ by VarietyÂ earlier today, Apple wants to start hiring a developmentÂ team before the end of the year and begin production as soon as early 2016.Â With more than $200 billionÂ in cash reserves, Apple could also just purchase a production studio with a proven track record that would develop original content.
