After first being announced back in March during an event hosted by Apple, we’re now getting some more information regarding Apple TV+ thanks to Bloomberg.

Information includes insights into shows, release schedules, and most importantly – price.

Apple plans to launch Apple TV+ in November

With a November launch scheduled for the streaming service, more information is starting to trickle out from various sources. But it begs the questions – will Apple be able to compete with the likes of Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and the upcoming Disney service? Does anyone want them to?

Here are some of the bulleted points from the Bloomberg piece:

  • The service could cost $9.99 a month
  • A trial of the service may be available as Apple begins to fill out its library
  • Shows could release episodic (like HBO), as a series (Netflix), or a combo of both (three episodes at first, then weekly)
  • The service will launch in over 150 countries

In addition to the information above, The Financial Times reported that Apple has committed $6 billion to original programming for the service. It started at a much more reasonable $1 billion, but apparently, that number was thrown out the window early.

Personally, there is nothing exciting here for me. I use Apple products, but this isn’t something I feel like I have to have. Maybe the original programming will change my mind, but considering what direction Apple is going, I can’t imagine it will be.

What do you think? Interested in the Apple TV+ or will this be an easy skip for you? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
