The streaming market will be really disputed at the end of the year: this Tuesday (10), during the presentation event of the iPhone 11, Apple revealed that the Apple TV + will be released on November 1st. The price is very competitive: US $ 4.99 per month in the United States and R $ 9.90 in Brazil, with a free trial period for seven days.
Yes, the platform will also debut here on November 1st. In fact, Apple announced Apple TV + as a global service: the novelty will debut on the same date in more than 100 countries.
In addition to the price, a detail that draws attention is that the premiere is scheduled for the same month that Disney + will go into operation. Perhaps that explains the low monthly fee: the Disney service should be priced at $ 6.99 in the common plan and $ 12.99 in the option that includes ESPN + and Hulu.
Rumors said that Apple TV + would cost $ 9.99 a month, but the impending competition with Disney + is likely to have weighed on Apple to work with such a low monthly fee, at least in the initial phase.
The price is even lower if we take into account that the US $ 4.99 (or R $ 9.90) allows access to Apple TV + for the whole family (up to six members). In addition, consumers who purchase an iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac from now on will have free access to the platform for one year.
The videos will be available online and offline, and can be accessed through the Apple TV application that comes pre-installed on the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and iPod touch. The tool will soon be part of macOS Catalina.
Apple says the platform will also be available on the web (in tv.apple.com) for browsers like Firefox, Chrome and Safari (of course), on Samsung smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and other devices.
Among the original productions that will be available already at the premiere are Dickinson, For All Mankind, The Elephant Queen and, with great prominence, the series See (with Jason Momoa) and The Morning Show (with Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell and Reese Witherspoon).
In most of the series, Apple will follow the strategy of making the first three episodes available at once and releasing the rest weekly.
Tuesday’s announcements include the iPhone 11 Pro, a new iPad, as well as a new generation of Apple Watch. Apple Arcade is also on the way: the service will be released on September 19.
