Apple has been investing a ton into its video streaming service, Apple TV+. The company’s $4.99 a month video streaming service undercuts the prices of all the other major players like Netflix and Disney+.
Cupertino has been spending a lot of money on Apple TV+, especially on new original content. But at the same time, Apple has been hiring new talent for the service. The latest to join Apple’s team is Ruslan Meshenberg, who was previously a senior engineer at Netflix.
Ruslan Meshenberg announced his move on Twitter with a picture of Apple’s HQ entrance. Meshenberg joined Netflix back in 2011, and he was responsible for the streaming service’s cloud platform for a good few years. Before Netflix, Meshenberg worked at Yahoo! and HP.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that Meshenberg is joining Apple’s internet-services organization, with Variety reporting that he is joining Apple’s video streaming team as an engineering leader.
