Apple says that there’ll be lots of TV and movie content, including more than 150 3D movies from top studios, available for viewing on the Apple Vision Pro. However, don’t expect Netflix shows and films to be among them.
The streaming giant isn’t planning to launch an app for Apple’s “spatial computer,” “marking a high-profile snub of the new technology by the world’s biggest video subscription service,” reports Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman.
What’s more, Netflix won’t even support itsexisting iPad app on the visionOS platform. The company, which competes with Apple in streaming, said in a statement to Gurman that users interested in watching its content on the device can do so from the web.
