Apple TV+ Has Announced its Release Date, Low Monthly Price, and a Line-Up of Series
We finally have the major details on the brand new streamer Apple TV Plus, and it’s sounding pretty good. The service is set to premiere on November 1st and will cost customers $4.99 per month. Or it could cost nothing at all for one year for anyone who purchases an Apple device during the introductory period. That’s a pretty great deal if you are planning on getting a new phone or other Apple product soon anyway. But even if you aren’t, $4.99 is pretty competitive, and I’m liking the looks of the Apple TV Plus lineup, so I’m pretty much sold on the streamer either way.
Here’s the list of the series and films that will be available on the premiere date:
The epic drama starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard is set 600 years in the future after a virus has decimated humankind and rendered the remaining population blind. When all humanity has lost the sense of sight, humans must adapt and find new ways to survive.
The Morning Show
A cutthroat drama starring and executive produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, and starring Steve Carell, explores the world of morning news and the ego, ambition and the misguided search for power behind the people who help America wake up in the morning.
