Apple TV+ has undergone quite a growth spurt since its introduction and is now very much involved in various awards ceremonies for the content that it streams. Apple TV+ shows recently picked up a raft of awards and will look to continue that in the future. The strategies worked on by Miller surely helped along the way.
