Apple TV+ Eyes November Launch, $9.99 Monthly Fee: Report
The streaming wars are looking like they will heat up in November.
Apple TV+ is considering a November launch date and an initial fee of $9.99 per month, according to a Bloomberg report. While that price is not confirmed, it would match the subscription fees of Apple Music and Apple News.
The Disney+ streaming service is set to debut November 12 and will cost $6.99 a month.
A free trial of Apple TV+ is likely, as the platform introduces a small selection of shows — like the high-profile "Morning Show" — and continues to build its library.
Bloomberg also reports that Apple hasn't decided on a release strategy for its shows, but considering offering three episodes of some shows followed by weekly installments. That is a similar rollout plan as some Hulu programs.
Apple TV+ will join a packed streaming market that will only get more crowded, with HBO Max and NBC Universal's streaming service still forthcoming.
