As they share from 9to5Mac, this is the first time that an Apple TV + series is no longer exclusive to the platform, and we see that all of its content should not remain on it alone. Of course, the series will continue in the platform catalog. However, it’s helpful to understand how Apple negotiates service additions.
On this occasion, Paramount, one of the co-producers of the series, will be the distributor of it in physical format. And for the moment only appears to be available in the US. This news opens the doors to those who do not have access to the service to enjoy certain content.
