Apple TV+ is fairly new to the scene having launched just last year, but according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, it seems to be doing pretty well because in terms of subscribers, Apple TV+ is reported to have more subscribers compared to the likes of Hulu, who has been around for a while, and the recently-launched Disney Plus.
In a bid to help draw more users into subscribing to its Apple Music service, Apple had previously launched a student pricing plan for Apple Music. Priced at $4.99, this is essentially half of what regular customers would pay, making it a more affordable option for students who might want to sign up for it.
Right now all of Apple’s services are available as separate plans, but if a report from the Financial Times (paywall) is to be believed, it seems that there is a chance that Apple could be looking to bundle a couple of its services together that would be potentially cheaper and make it more appealing than the competition.
When Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus were announced with prices cheaper than what Netflix has been charging its customers, it was starting to feel like Netflix could be in trouble. However, it turns out that maybe Netflix might not have to be as concerned as they should, at least that’s what survey seems to suggest.
Over the years, Netflix has steadily increased the price of its subscription. Customers mostly had no choice as there weren’t that many streaming services around, but then came along Apple and Disney, both of whom announced their own streaming services in the form of Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus.
