Apple launched its Apple TV HD in March 2007. The device is essentially a set-top box that streams content from over-the-top (OTT) platform services onto the TV screen. The device was praised for its powerful hardware and stable software at the time. However, it was not able to gain momentum in sales due to the limited availability of OTT platforms.
Fast-forward to 2019, Apple has been selling Apple TV 4K, an upgraded version of the already available Apple TV HD. The market is flooded with OTT platforms, and a major share of it is being held by Netflix (more than 50%). Looking to capture a major chunk of this OTT market, Apple launched its OTT service by the name of Apple TV+ on 1 November 2019. It also started offering a free one-year subscription of Apple TV+ with the purchase of Apple TV 4K and HD. Soon, the sales of Apple TV started picking pace.
