Apple's upcoming streaming video service is scheduled to launch in November and will be priced at $ 9.99 a month, according to a new report tonight by Bloomberg .
The company has not yet talked about pricing or launch date, though it announced it back in March this year. But this window puts the Apple product right against the release of Disney +, its own jungle-streaming service set up to include a combination of original Disney movies, Marvel content, Star Wars content and original shows and movies in all its properties and networks.
According to Bloomberg Apple aims to reach $ 50 billion in annual revenue from services by 2020, and the launch of TV Plus is integral to this cornerstone. Come November, the service will arrive with just five shows: Tomorrow's Show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon; See starring Jason Momoa's Aquaman ; a production called by Truth Be Told with actress Octavia Spencer; Stephen Spielberg's Rebirth of Incredible Stories; and a documentary series called Home.
It's not a very stable lineup and Apple will reportedly be adding slower-paced shows than rivals soon like Netflix, according to Interview Chief Ed Ed Kew, given on The Sunday Times back in June. However, Apple has attracted a number of other big names, including Oprah Winfrey, who has made two documentaries on TV Plus. It is also reported that he spends hundreds of millions of dollars on The Tomorrow Show and See each.
In this sense, it seems that Apple did not launch its service later this year with some kind of package. That could make his series of five shows for $ 10 a month a solid sale against something like Disney +, which launches on its own for $ 6.99 a month and will also come with Hulu and a shortened version of ESPN thrown in for $ 12, 99 per month,
