In a total of 100 countries now Apple also starts its own streaming service with Apple TV Plus from 1 November 2019 at a competitive price of 4.99 $ / month. The offer can be terminated on a monthly basis as with other streaming providers.
A trial period (as usual), there are at Apple TV Plus synonymous, but there are only 7 days. Then the first paid month begins.
Here, the competition has the nose in front of the front, each a free trial month.
It has been speculated in advance (as with any announcement from Apple) much as Apple wants to score against the top dog Amazon Prime Video and above all Netflix. Well at first, it will certainly be the low price compared to the competition that will make users curious. However, if you look at the start line-up, then that may not cost more.
Because Apple TV Plus starts at first only with a handful of series of which all are self-produced. That this is not yet a serious competition for Netflix and Prime Video is clear. However, considering the Apple sits on a giant mountain money reserves for investment available Apple TV Plus could bring the streaming market in the next few years properly.
