- Apple has reportedly leased a new studio in Queens, New York.
Apple TV+ has picked itself up a new studio according to reports, with the Kaufman Astoria Studios in New York now leased to the streamer.
According to a report by New York real estate outlet TheRealDeal (opens in new tab) that was picked up by Cult of Mac, the "deal quietly closed last year, making it one of the largest leases in Queens in 2020."
The full facility runs to 90,000 square feet and includes a soundstage and production facilities.
There's no indication what we can expect Apple TV+ to use the facility for, but whatever it turns out to be it's clear the commitment to throwing money at Apple TV+ content continues. New shows, movies, and documentaries are seemingly being announced on the weekly, while second and third seasons of existing shows are also regularly being signed up.
Apple TV+ is available as a $4.99 per month subscription or via the Apple One subscription bundle, whichever makes the most sense for your particular needs.
100% exclusive content for the price of a cup of coffee.
With TV+, you can watch well-produced, big-budget TV shows from famed directors, and starring award-winning actors and actresses across all your Apple devices and with up to six members of your Family Sharing group.
