Back in March, Apple unveiled its video streaming service – Apple TV+. It was the company’s answer to the growing dominance of all popular streaming services like Netflix, Prime Video or Hulu. And well, Apple has finally revealed the price and availability details for Apple TV+ after keeping mum on it ever since its launch.
Apple TV+ will go live on November 1 and well again, you won’t have to shell out a ton. Apple has priced its video streaming service at $4.99 per month for a family plan, which is the same as Apple Arcade. You’ll be able to watch all the exclusive on Apple TV app across all of your devices.
One of the highlights of the Apple TV+ announcement today was that the company will offer a whole year of its subscription service for free to users who pick up a new iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV. This is an attractive offer and ties in well with the company’s iPhone 11 launch today. It will witness an influx of subscribers right off the bat as many users will upgrade to the latest iPhone in the coming weeks. Clever move, Apple!
Also, if you take a look at Apple TV+ against its competitors, it’s priced quite reasonably and effectively for Apple fanboys. When the streaming service launches later next month, you will get access to several exclusive shows such as The Morning Show (hosted by Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell) and a new Jason Momoa-led sci-fi series titled See.

You will be able to stream all of this via the Apple TV, which will soon become available on Samsung smart TVs and on Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony and Vizio TVs in the future as well. AirPlay 2 support is also coming to select smart TVs with Apple TV support, so you’re going to have a lot of options to enjoy Apple’s originals.
