Oprah Winfrey will make a book program for Apple’s new streaming service, which will be called Apple TV +. The first broadcast of Oprah’s Book Club is on November 1. A new episode comes every two months.
“I am who I am because I learned to read at a young age”
In the first broadcast Oprah talks with writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. He has written a new book, The Water Dancer. The e-book and audio book can be purchased at Apple Books and the interview will be recorded at the Apple Carnegie Library in Washington, sponsored by the tech giant.
Oprah wants to get more people reading. “I am who I am because I learned to read at a young age. Reading opened a world off my grandmother’s red country lane and porch in Mississippi. I want to achieve that for everyone. And the ability to do that with Apple, for people to tell all over the world about the fun, the excitement, the excitement, the drama that a good book can bring, I know nothing better. “
Apple TV + must be available in 150 countries at the same time, including the Netherlands and Belgium. The video streaming service costs 4.99 euros per month. The service must compete with, among others, Netflix, Amazon and the new Disney service Disney +
