Well with today’s Apple September event the main star of the show was surprisingly not the new phones, tablets and watches many folks were anticipating but instead it’s all new streaming service Apple TV+. Granted the announcement of the service as well as the ongoing marketing campaign for it’s original content has been dropping for months, today marked the official details regarding the service .
The service itself will cost $4.99 a month. Currently stacked up against it’s competitors it will be the cheapest on the market up against Disney+ coming in at $6.99 a month and Netflix at $8.99 a month. As for “content” the rumor says the company has invested billions of dollars into it’s initial launch of shows (Millions alone of The Morning Show starring Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon). Currently Apple has previewed about a handful of it’s shows to premiere and just today dropped the trailer for Jason Momoa’s “SEE” which looked to be an epic science fiction series .
In the end the question is with all the other streaming services you pay for what makes Apple stand out? Is it the price point or it’s original content? Only time will tell how much of a hit these originals are so we’ll have to wait and see. A cool option Apple is giving is if you buy a new Apple TV, iPad or iPhone you get a FREE years worth of the service. Apple TV + launches November 1st.
