Apple’s TV streaming service Apple TV+ will make it’s way to viewers in November this year. The subscription for this service will cost $9.99 per month and will offer plenty of movies, original TV shows and documentaries. This is the first time that Apple is trying its hand with the video streaming service in competition to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and yet to be launched Disney Plus.
Apple TV+ will launch in 150 countries worldwide and the subscription price will stay the same for every country. This service is a part of Apple’s big plan to achieve $50 billion in sales by 2020. The company will start with a set of TV shows and movies on this service and gradually expand its content across the different categories. A free trial will also be available for the new users who wish to explore the catalog before jumping on to the paid subscription cycle.
It will take time for Apple to build its library from scratch but they should eventually get there in a few months after the launch. The company is reportedly planning many strategies for the release of shows. For some programs, it will offer three episodes at the same time while for other shows, it will include weekly episodes.
Netflix usually releases all the episodes at once for binge-watching. At the moment, there doesn’t seem to be such a strategy for Apple TV+ but we can expect it in the future. Apart from video streaming service, Apple will also be launching the Apple Arcade gaming service soon for $4.99 per month.
