Are you an Apple fan and love the TV hit shows such as HBO's "Westworld" and Netflix's "Stranger Things?" Great news for you, because you are in for a grand treat this 2017.

Apple Is Going For A Hollywood Status

According to reports, Apple is planning to make its way in Hollywood by having its own original tv show. The specific genre of the content that Apple is gunning for will be something similar or comparable in terms of popularity to the critically acclaimed shows such as "Westworld" and "Stranger Things" which are very exciting to hear, given how well these shows have been received by both critics and the audience.

The show will be launched by the end of the year. It will be featured in the Apple Music and will be part of Apple's $9.99 per month subscription service. It will also fall in line with previous reports and accompanied with already-announced reports for the music streaming service, including Carpool Karaoke and Vital Signs.

Though this can be seen as Apple's way of being a streaming contender alongside Netflix and Amazon Prime, analysts claim that isn't what Apple is planning. This plan of Apple is said to be its own way of standing out from Spotify. That claim can be true, because Spotify offers the same library of music as Apple Music, and it's generally thought to have better interface and recommendations. So if this will be true, then this will be a huge advantage for Apple.
