In other words, when you open the Apple TV application, whether on a computer, iPad or iPhone, we will find Apple TV + titles mixed by the interface with other titles of Apple TV something that is not the same service. The problem here is that Apple TV is the same name for two things. One, Apple's physical device to send content to television, and another, that of an application that allows us to reproduce in a single app different subscription services rental, purchase, etc.

Beyond the small disaster we found when we found all the titles mixed with each other, we find that Apple TV + has gone "on the street" with eight titles . That is, this first month, unless they start to include quite a few titles with relative speed, we will be paying 4.99 euros for an 8 series catalog, a little more than half a euro to watch each one.

Apple TV + comes from the hand of own productions and the ambition to rival With streaming giants. However, for this you need, first, to be more differentiated within the Apple TV + application Its current rivals have their own applications, if you want to watch Netflix, you download Netflix, and so on with the rest.
