Apple’s upcoming streaming service, Apple TV Plus, will cost $4.99 a month, Apple CEO Tim Cook announced at Tuesday’s Apple event. The service will launch on Nov. 1 — neck and neck with Disney’s streaming platform, Disney Plus, which arrives Nov. 12. Apple TV Plus will be cheaper than Disney Plus, however, which is set to cost $6.99 a month.
Starting Tuesday, if you purchase an iPhone, Mac, or Apple TV, you’ll get one year of Apple TV Plus for free.
Apple TV Plus will launch with a small selection of shows, before slowly expanding its catalog. The lineup includes The Morning Show, a comedy-drama about the fast-paced world of morning news shows, starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon; Dickinson, a coming-of-age comedy about Emily Dickinson, starring Hailee Steinfeld; andFor All Mankind, which explores an alternate history where the USSR won the space race.
Other shows coming to the platform include See, a sci-fi dystopian thriller starring Jason Momoa; a Sesame Street spinoff called Helpsters; and Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, a workplace comedy about a game studio.
