The Wall Street Journal has outlined a report that the most popular streaming services are increasing their budget for original content.
This is in light of Apple TV+ becoming available in a few monthsâ€™ time. WSJ has mentioned that Apple is spending approximately $15M per episode of the sci-fi drama series â€˜Seeâ€™. For original content, the report stated that the Cupertino-based firm has approximately a $1 billion budget for original TV shows and movies.
