Here’s a little bit of an about-face: YouTube now says it has a Vision Pro app on its roadmap. I mean this literally, as YouTube spokesperson Jessica Gibby just emailed me the following statement: “We’re excited to see Vision Pro launch and we’re supporting it by ensuring YouTube users have a great experience in Safari. We do not have any specific plans to share at this time, but can confirm that a Vision Pro app is on our roadmap.” […]

I asked YouTube if this new app will support VR and 360 video on the Vision Pro and have not heard back yet.

Next: Netflix.

Der Streamingdienst meldete 13 Millionen neue Abonnent:innen im letzten Quartal; insgesamt sind es damit nun 260 Millionen Kund:innen.

Second, ads. Scaling our ads business represents an opportunity to tap into significant new revenue and profit pools over the medium to longer term. In Q4‘23, like the quarter before, our ads membership increased by nearly 70% quarter over quarter, supported by improvements in our offering (e.g., downloads) and the phasing out of our Basic plan for new and rejoining members in our ads markets. The ads plan now accounts for 40% of all Netflix sign-ups in our ads markets and we’re looking to retire our Basic plan in some of our ads countries, starting with Canada and the UK in Q2 and taking it from there.


Netflix pusht sein werbefinanziertes Abo. Obwohl Apple Vision Pro dafür rein rechnerisch noch keine relevanten Verkaufszahlen präsentieren kann, zieht Apples Headset prozentual betrachtet viele Interessentinnen und Interessenten für Filme und Serien an.

So wird es von Monat zu Monat fraglicher, warum ein Premium-Streamingdienst für zuhause nicht über den besten Bildschirm für zuhause flimmert.
