Study: Apple TV+ Outranks Competitors for Top-Rated Content
Deciding which streaming service to subscribe to is no easy task. While some services offer massive libraries, others, like Apple TV+, feature higher-quality content. According to a study from Self Financial, the platform’s focus on quality over quantity is paying off.
The study from Self Financial uses IMDb scores to determine which streaming platform has the top shows and movies. Across the board, the content available on Apple TV+ received a rating of 7.24 out of 10. 86% of the service’s content ratings fell under either “good” or “excellent.”
Notably, Apple TV+ has a small offering compared to other streaming platforms. Apple TV+ has just 65 titles, while other services offer thousands. Some of the platform’s titles have really taken off though. In particular, “The Morning Show” and “Ted Lasso” gained a lot of attention following their releases.
¿Qué sucede cuando las personas en las que confías demuestran ser deshonestas? The Morning Show narra la caída libre de un noticiero matutino a raíz de un escándalo, y su lucha por sobrevivir en una era en la que las noticias llegan en la palma de tu mano.
Ted Lasso, un ingenuo entrenador de fútbol americano que decide probar suerte en un club de fútbol inglés aunque no tiene idea de ese deporte. Su inexperiencia despierta recelo y desdén entre jugadores y aficionados. Con un equipo y una ciudad que lo mira con sospecha, ¿logrará tener éxito?
Previously, Apple CEO Tim Cook talked about the company’s approach to building their library. He’s made it clear that Apple TV+ isn’t trying to compete with services like Netflix. He said, “We’re about making the best, not the most, and so in the TV Plus area, we’re about originals only on Apple.”
Jeanette DePatie, industry analyst, points out that the company is going to have to find a way to get subscribers to stick around, explaining, “The challenge going forward will be, can they continue on their current growth trajectory before customers begin to consolidate their spending on streaming in favor of companies with larger content libraries.”
Focusing on quality over quantity seems to be effective for Apple TV+. Since the platform’s launch a year ago, the company has received 91 awards and over 300 nominations. Streamers who are interested in watching highly-rated shows and movies might opt for Apple TV+ over other services.
