Apple TV+ and Arcade both $4.99 per month

Apple surprises with low monthly fees

by Andy Bassett
Apple’s TV+ was expected in November so the release date of the Nov 1st is no surprise, however, the monthly $4.99 subscription fee under undercuts industry predictions.
Apple’s traditional September launch concentrated mainly on the new iPhone 11 handsets and the Series 5 Apple Watch. However, Apple’s anticipated services, TV+ and Arcade were both given about 5 minutes each with launch dates and subscription fees announced for each.

Apple TV+ will cost $4.99 per month for a family package, meaning anyone in the home can stream their own preferred content to their own device.

The first shows will be available on November 1st in over 100 countries, and further content will be added each month. The countries were not specified but there’s no reason to expect that the UK will have been passed over, unlike with Disney’s streaming service launch.

The Jason Momoa starring See was given a trailer showing a world where the gift of sight is slowly returning to a world where humans have lost the ability to see.

As an opening offer, anyone purchasing an iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV will get a year’s subscription to the TV+ service for free. There was no indication how long the offer will last.

Apple also announced the availability of their new gaming service, Arcade. This will be available in the App Store from Sep 19th in over 150 countries and matches Apple TV+ with a family subscription of $4.99 per month. This allows access to the entire range of over 100 games at the start, covering a range of titles and styles for all the family.
