… Why I Picked Apple TV Over OWN for Harry Series

Oprah needed just 3 words to explain why she picked Apple TV over her OWN network for her new series with Prince Harry … and it makes TOTAL sense.

We got O leaving “The Daily Show” Wednesday night in NYC … where she was greeted by a throng of fans on her way out. It took a while … but eventually our guy asked Oprah what everyone wants to know … why choose a fledgling streaming service over an established network with her friggin name on it?

Check out the vid … she hints that Apple TV has a bigger reach than OWN, which was launched in 2011 in just over 80 million homes. And therein lies the answer … OWN’s reach is only in the millions. 

As you know … she teamed up with the Duke of Sussex to co-produce a new series focusing on mental health. It’s slated to debut next year on Apple TV. It’s an issue that hits close to home … so reaching a much bigger audience for such an important topic proved paramount.
