Oh, come on! It was ALWAYS privatized. Were not CBS and ABC running ads for profit?

Apple TV+ does not run ads. Nor do you need to pay them anything to see these; they are going to let you view them without a subscription.

So, in that sense, it’s less capitalist now. It is not behind a paywall and there are no commercials.

You do not need any Apple device to get TV+. However, it will require an internet or cell connection. That could freeze out some lower income families, but they have many more problems than missing Charlie Brown. How about our tech-illiterate Congress do something about that?
