Apple claimed it had less than 20 million Apple TV+ subscribers in the U.S. and Canada as of July 1st, allowing the company to pay behind-the-scenes production workers a lower rate, reports CNBC.
The International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, a union that represents TV and movie workers, currently allows smaller streaming companies to pay workers at a discounted rate.
Under the current contract, high-budget productions intended for streaming can offer lower rates to workers if the streaming service has less than 20 million subscribers in the U.S. and Canada, which is determined on July 1 every year. Apple told IATSE that it had less than 20 million subscribers, a union spokesman said.
