When it comes to the content of the upcoming Apple TV+ subscription service, it appears Apple is sparing no expense.
說到蘋果公司即將推出的電視內容訂閱服務,蘋果公司似乎在內容制作上不惜成本。

According to the Wall Street Journal, the iPhone maker is shelling out big bucks on some of its headline shows.
據《華爾街日報》報道,蘋果手機制造商在其部分重要的電視節目上投入了大量資金。

Specifically, Apple is said to have a production budget of $15 million per episode for the Jason Momoa-led sci-fi series See.
特別是,據說蘋果公司推出了一部由杰森·莫瑪(曾飾演過海王)主演的科幻系列劇作《看見》,而這部劇每集的制作預算為1500萬美元。

To put that in perspective, $15 million is what HBO spent per episode on the final six episodes of the Game of Thrones series and what Disney is spending per episode on its upcoming flagship Disney+ Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian.
換句話說,1500萬美元已經相當于HBO電視網在《權力的游戲》最后六集中每集的投入,也相當于迪士尼在即將上映的王牌電影系列《星球大戰》的衍生劇《曼德羅林人》中每集的投入。

The budget is good news for those worried about the quality of Apple TV+’s content offerings. Matter of fact, it’s some of the only news we’ve received about Apple TV+’s content offerings since Apple previewed the service back in March.
這樣的預算對于那些擔心蘋果公司的電視內容質量的人而言算是個好消息了。事實上,自從蘋果公司三月份表示將推出視頻服務以來,這是我們得到的關于其電視內容僅有的部分消息了。

While Apple did say the service will launch this fall, we still haven’t learned how much it will cost and if it will include any third-party content like other streaming services, or just feature Apple’s original content.
雖然蘋果公司確實表示,今年秋天會推出視頻服務,但我們依然不曾得知這項服務的費用,以及該服務是否會包括其他流媒體服務平臺等第三方內容供應商的產品,還是其平臺上只有蘋果公司原創的內容。
