Apple is in the market for a large production campus in Los Angeles for Apple TV+

As per The Wall Street Journal, the Cupertino tech giant told development executives it is considering several possible locations at the moment. The new production campus, which would primarily contain soundstages for Apple TV+, could exceed half a million square feet. The site would be in addition to the existing soundstages the company leases around the globe.

Owning a permanent production campus would be a huge feat for Apple and it would allow it to produce a stable stream of content for its service. Since available soundstages to rent must be booked months in advance, the move would offer some flexibility for the tech giant. Especially since competing streaming services are strategically buying up large hubs for their own use.

According to the report, an Apple retail executive named Mike Mosallam joined the company in January 2021 to help with its soundstage expansion efforts. While Apple already owns a number of properties, this recent move shows how serious it is about growing its streaming service. Despite having no back-catalog library, the tech giant is gradually building a high-quality collection of Apple TV+ Originals to attract subscribers.
