Apple is jumping into creating more and more exclusive content for what could eventually lead to a streaming service. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Apple has signed an exclusive deal with DHX Media to produce several bits of content. Most notably, the Peanuts will be coming to Apple.
DHX Media acquired the rights to the Peanut’s franchise in 2017 and plan to bring a series of shorts to the Apple Platform sometime in 2019.
Apple has been busy the last few years building up an extensive roster of producers and production companies to provide exclusive content. No official announcement has been made for an Apple streaming services separate from Apple Music or iTunes.
