Apple has confirmed plans to launch Apple TV+ on November 1.
The company announced that the “first all-original video subscription service and home for today’s most imaginative storytellers” will arrive in more than 100 countries around the world, priced at just $4.99 for the whole family.
Apple also confirmed that anyone who purchases an iPad, Apple TV, MacBook or iPhone will receive a year of Apple TV+ for free, which will no doubt inflate the firm’s subscription counts.
With shows such as “The Morning Show,” “Dickinson,” “See,” “For All Mankind” and “The Elephant Queen” expected at launch, Apple TV+ will be available on a whole host of platforms including the new Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, as well as online on a new dedicated website, tv.apple.com.
“With Apple TV+, we are presenting all-original stories from the best, brightest and most creative minds, and we know viewers will find their new favorite show or movie on our service,” said Zack Van Amburg, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video.
“Each Apple TV+ original offers its own unique story, fresh perspective and powerful message — all meant to entertain, connect and inspire cultural conversations.”
“Apple TV+ is an unprecedented global video service with an all-original slate,” said Jamie Erlicht, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video. “We look forward to giving audiences everywhere the opportunity to enjoy these compelling stories within a rich, personalized experience on all the screens they love.”
Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to watch Apple TV+ originals both online and offline, ad-free and on-demand, and the Apple TV app will soon be available on Samsung smart TVs, and will come to Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future, offering more ways to watch content on your favorite devices – and allowing Apple to compete with the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime.
