In March earlier this year, Apple announced their upcoming streaming service called Apple TV+. The company did not mention how much the service will cost or when it will launch, but now a report from Bloomberg has revealed that the company could be aiming for a launch this coming November and where they could be planning it for a $9.99 a month subscription.
At $9.99, it doesn’t seem to be particularly expensive, especially when you consider that there are other streaming services that are priced similarly, if not more expensive. However, we should also mention that Apple TV+ will not be similar to other streaming services. This is because at the start, they will not have that huge of a library compared to more established platforms like Netflix.
Also, unlike other upcoming streaming services like Disney+, Apple does not have any franchises under their belt like Disney, Star Wars, or Marvel. The company has been investing quite a bit in original programming, but it remains to be seen if it will be good enough to be competitive.
We expect that Apple will probably have more news to share at their upcoming events, like their iPhone event which we heard could take place this September, so check back with us then for more updates.
