The Apple Event 2019 took place on September 10th, 2019, in Cupertino, California. The event highlighted various upcoming releases by Apple, and one of them was the release of Apple TV+ — the first all-original video streaming subscription service for the users.
A streaming service by Apple has been in the news for a long time as the success of Netflix has been pushing these companies to work on their own streaming service. Disney has also been working on its streaming service, Disney+. So, these companies are warming up to have tough competition in the streaming business.
To compete with that, Apple offers a 7-day free trial to its users and a $4.99 monthly subscription fee for Apple TV+. It also allows family sharing with up to 6 members per subscription.
Apple’s head of Worldwide Video, Zack Van Amburg said:
“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. Each Apple TV+ original offers its own unique story, fresh perspective, and powerful message — all meant to entertain, connect, and inspire cultural conversations.”
Jamie Erlicht, who is also the head of Apple’s Worldwide Video, said:
“Apple TV+ is an unprecedented global video service with an all-original slate. 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.”
The launch of Apple TV+ plus will take place in over 100 countries and regions. It will offer inspiring shows to its viewers, including “Dickinson,” “The Morning Show,” “The Elephant Queen” and many more. Apple TV+ is going to give tough competition to its competitors like Disney+ and Netflix.
Apple TV+ launch date
Apple TV+ is launching on November 1st, 2019. A good news for Apple fans who are looking to get Apple TV+ subscription. If you buy an iPhone, iPad, or Mac, or an Apple TV, the company is offering a year of Apple TV+ for FREE. This offer is not available for the users who already have Apple devices.
