Apple confirmed that its highly anticipated all-original video streaming service Apple TV+ will launch in 100 countries and regions on Friday, Nov. 1.
It will cost $4.99 per month with a free seven-day trial for first-time subscribers.
Additionally, customers who purchase any iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, or iPod Touch will be able to get a free subscription of Apple TV+ for one year, according to Apple.
Apple Enters Streaming Space With The Most Affordable Option
The ad-free streaming service can be viewed using the Apple TV app on the various platforms of the company, including the Apple TV, Mac, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and on browsers via tv.apple.com.
In the future, Apple TV+ will also be available on newer Samsung smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony, and VIZIO. Users will also be able to stream the service using their Apple devices on Samsung, LG, and VIZIO TVs with Airplay 2.
The monthly subscription fee is $4.99 per month, providing a lower price than fellow streaming newcomer Disney+ that's offering its service at $6.99 per month. Apple's service is also cheaper than more established streaming players Hulu's $5.99 ad-supported monthly plan and Netflix's $8.99 single-screen monthly plan.
Making it even more affordable, Apple TV+ Family Sharing allows up to six people to share the subscription.
Apple's New And Original Content
Apple TV+ will debut with a handful of original shows when it launches in November. More shows will be added every month, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
One of the shows that will be available at the launch is See, which revolves around Jason Momoa's character who lives in a post-apocalyptic world where humans have become blind.
The highly anticipated drama The Morning Show featuring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell will also be part of the first slate of shows on the platform.
Other Apple originals available by launch date are Dickinson, For All Mankind, Helpsters, Snoopy in Space, Ghostwriter, The Elephant Queen, and an Oprah Winfrey book club series.
Then, over the next few months, subscribers can look forward to the following projects: Servant directed by M. Night Shyamalan, Truth Be Told starring award-winning Octavia Spencer and Aaron Paul, The Banker starring Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie, Little America, and Hala.
"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," Zack Van Amburg, Apple's head of Worldwide Video, explained in a statement. "Each Apple TV+ original offers its own unique story, fresh perspective and powerful message — all meant to entertain, connect and inspire cultural conversations."
