Media Giant speaks favorably of Apple

John Malone says Apple may be a surprise winner in the streaming wars, getting ‘large numbers fast’

Liberty Media Chairman John Malone thinks that Apple could stun investors down the road as a winner in the intense streaming wars that have engulfed Silicon Valley and Hollywood in a bid for viewers and content alike.

“Apple is going to surprise everyone with numbers they achieve in a short period of time. Even though they’re thin on content ... when you start with 460 consumer relationships, and you give them something for free, that’s a very interesting way to get large numbers fast,” he said in an interview Thursday with CNBC’s David Faber.

“They can gauge what people like, don’t like” and while their approach doesn’t prioritize content production, Apple has a “wonderful” mass-distribution strategy, he said.
