Apple TV+ Price And Release Date Revealed
It will be cheaper and arrive sooner than Disney's streaming service.
During the Apple event on September 10, more information about the company's streaming service was revealed, and it's going up against Disney+. CEO of Apple, Tim Cook, revealed that Apple TV+ will launch on November 1, and it will cost $5 per month for the whole family.
The new streaming service will be available in over 100 countries during the launch. Apple TV+ will have its own original series, including See, starring Jason Momoa. The series revolves around a future where humans have lost the ability to see, and the world has become much more primitive. A full trailer was shown for the upcoming series.
Apple TV+ will have a large selection of original series in the pipeline available at or soon after launch. This includes the return of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, a new show based on pulp science-fiction stories Spielberg read as a kid. This show is a reboot of his show of the same name that ran from 1985-87 on NBC.
What's most interesting about the Apple TV+ announcement that it will be beating Disney+ to market by 11 days--Disney+ arrives on November 12. Additionally, Apple's service will be cheaper coming in at $5 per month over Disney+'s $7 a month--or $13 a month when Disney+ is bundled with ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu.
Apple announced a lot during the company's event. The 7th generation of iPad is coming, and aside from specific specs, we know that pricing starts around $329. Also, Apple revealed more about the upcoming Apple Arcade, including monthly pricing and a look at a few games from developers.
