Apple TV+ to launch in November

Begun, the streaming wars have

Apple has officially set a date for the launch of its premium service.

In the United States, the monthly subscription for Apple TV+ is set at US$4.99/month and the service will launch on November 1. 

Australians will get the service on the same day for AU$7.99/month.

Unlike Netflix, there are no different tiers restricting the number of users or access to 4K streaming. Out of the gate, Apple TV+ subscribers will be able to share their account with up to six family members.

What's more, and in addition to the 7-day free trial, to try and bolster interest in the service Apple are including an entire year's subscription with the purchase of any new iPad, iMac or iPhone. 

“With Apple TV+, we are presenting all-original stories from the best, brightest and most creative minds, and we know viewers will find their new favourite show or movie on our service,” said Zack Van Amburg, Apple’s head of Worldwide Video. 

“Each Apple TV+ original offers its own unique story, fresh perspective and powerful message — all meant to entertain, connect and inspire cultural conversations.”

Apple say that, at launch, the following original series will be available on the series:

  • See
  • Morning Wars
  • Dickinson
  • For All Mankind
  • Helpsters
  • Snoopy in Space
  • Ghostwriter
  • The Elephant Queen

Additional series are set to be added each month, including Servant, Truth Be Told, Little America, The Banker and Hala.

In Australia, Apple TV+ will launch on November 1st for AU$7.99/month. 

New Zealand pricing is to be confirmed.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.
