According to the CNBC report, Apple will provide a new streaming service through the Apple TV app in early 2019. Free content in Apple's "TV" appApple has previously offered some of its video content for free through Apple Music but it appears that the company will be transitioning to the ‘TV app, which is now curating content from multiple services such as Amazon, HBO, iTunes, and others.

And now consumers have another reason to choose that iPhone over an Android phone: free original content. Let's just hope that original content is of the quality users are used to seeing on competing video streaming services. The service will also include subscription apps from TV networks, allowing customers to sign into their online-only services, such as HBO Now.

As of Thursday, iOS 12 has been loaded on 50 percent of all iOS devices, which includes iPhones and iPads, according to Apple's App Store Distribution page.

CNBC has the news about Apple original shows being offered for free to Apple users. If the report can be believed, Apple will be focusing on PG-rated series suitable for family viewing; a move straight out of the Disney playbook. That means those channels will no longer have apps on the Apple TV home screen, which will make the interface a little less cluttered and hopefully make it a little easier to find the content you want to watch without sorting through all the apps. The company expects to launch a new and improved version of the TV app "early next year", the report notes.

"Apple has made clear, say producers and agents, that it wants high-quality shows with stars and broad appeal, but it doesn't want gratuitous sex, profanity, or violence", the Journal reported. We'll just have to be patient until Apple makes an announcement. Some episodes of the first season are available for free through Apple Music, while others are hidden behind the paywall.
