Apple TV+ is primarily focused on original content. This leans into TV shows, films, and documentaries. However, there's still room for growth with a streaming service that doesn't appear too concerned with buying a large library of content.
At this point, it's pretty hard to ignore how prominent Ted Lasso is. It's a hit for Apple TV+ and it's a series that's both adored by critics and viewers alike. It's also an awards darling, too. And now the show's earned almost a dozen new nominations.
