Five things we'd rather have than an Apple-Netflix

It must have been 2015 in the Apple developers conference. Exhausted from two hours of Live hand embroidered, I came together with Thousands of visitors from the hall and ran, of all things, a Brazilian TV-Team in the army. And also agreed to give an Interview.

A couple of questions about iOS 9 and the new music-Streaming service to Apple's Music, I would be able to answer Yes. But it came different.

"Are you disappointed that Apple has introduced a Video-Streaming service?", the Reporter asked First. The question I had been expecting, nor was I aware that that would ever been spooking through the rumor mill.

My response at the time (with plenty of delay and wonderment): "no. First of all, I didn't expect this, and secondly, there are already plenty of Alternatives."

streaming service

Yes, and today? Apple's Video - Streaming ambitions are an open secret. With the announcement of a presentation for the 25. March with the title "It's show time!" is likely to be the last doubts dispelled. The Video-Streaming service with plenty of your own content.

the More you do not know but. What it will cost, there are, in addition to in-house productions, other content, and how it harmonizes with competitors like Netflix , Amazon, or HBO, in which countries it comes from and on what devices?

That Apple relies on Services and subscriptions, is to understand from a business perspective is very easy. I as a user have, however, years after the TV Interview, no more Netflix on the wish list.

So here are five things that I'd rather have than an Apple-Netflix:

No American conditions

The TV landscape in the Streaming era is like becoming the American TV landscape in the Vordigital age. The speech is of the Bundles, and in the case of any new series, you need to look at which provider it is now. "Game of Thrones", "House of Cards" and the upcoming "the Lord of the rings"series again, another service that is fast, expensive, annoying and tedious. Much better than an additional buying channel, I would have from Apple is a solution for this emerging subscription-Horror. Unlike the record companies, movie studios, and TV will put up a fight-stations, but with hands, feet and lawyers against such a deal. Or?

Better Apps for the Apple TV

Compared with the first request, this is downright modest: As Apple in 2015, presenting the new Apple TV (little black Box), there were Apps in the centre. Apps are the future of television, announced Tim Cook. However, until today, the only works half way. Unlike for the iPhone, the App seem to be able to developers, not really for the TV-Box to inspire you. The few Apps there are, are not nearly as good as their counterparts on the iPhone or iPad. Apple should give it another try, and the developers motivate to give the platform a Chance. But Apple should also give themselves a jolt. In Switzerland, for example, Siri is still missing on the Apple TV. And compared with the competition, the Box is anything other than a bargain.

A second attempt for Games

At the presentation of the Apple TV 2015 games stood in the center. It looked as if Apple would run the then-ailing Nintendo the rank and the success of the Wii console repeat: simple, family-friendly games with intuitive operation that does Not appeal to just gamers. However, the opposite happened: Good games for the most powerful TV Box is still missing. The remote control was very bad for games, and specially-licensed controller you have to buy third-party. Instead, Nintendo with the Switch-console Apple look old. Constantly new games (whether it's Blockbuster or a small Indie title). With a little more courage to risk, Apple can then snap up Nintendo in this market. But instead, Nintendo shows how to combine a Tablet and a TV Box to a very entertaining and lucrative, which would be but the thickness is exactly Apple. Apple's games strategy urgently needs a restart. Finally, Netflix is no longer called piracy as its biggest competitor, but computer games.

TV

Yes, Yes, the rumours of the iTV are all lost in the Sand. Sure Apple has experimented. Maybe someone has confused an iMac prototype with a TV. Is A TV device from Apple has given it then but never. But that doesn't have to stay that way. For years, I'm thinking of a new TV, and you can inspire me for nothing. Either you are ugly, have terrible Software, or you are at risk of privacy. A TV without all the Hassles, you could safe for a Apple-typical charge sell?

The Apple Mega-Abo

The last desire I have ever expressed: an all-inclusive-Apple-Abo. In the case of Apple, the subscriptions start to pile up: One for music, one for Cloud storage, and will soon add one for Video and News. In addition, there are in the US, the iPhone Upgrade Program that guarantees a against a monthly fee a year, the latest iPhone. To focus why for the most loyal customer all these subscriptions to a Mega-subscription? Since Apple might be shot also Apps including. As a user, you pay a monthly fee, and Apple is the money distributed, then (depending on how often the Apps were used) to the developers. As Apple increasingly becomes Services and more devices in the foreground, it would be nothing more than consistently, all the Apple to define offers as a Service.
