Coming November 1 for $4.99 a month. And much like Apple Arcade, the subscription can be shared with up to five family members.
Here’s the thing about the pricing, though, you might never have to actually pay for it directly. Apple is offering a free year when you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV. If you buy Apple products with any degree of regularity, you’ll likely be able to string these free years together indefinitely.
If not for the free year deal, I don’t think I’d pay for the service. I’ve been watching less and less content from for-pay streaming services lately. My wife and I spend most of our TV time watching YouTube, game shows on Pluto TV, and various sitcom reruns with our over-the-air antenna.
But who knows, maybe I’ll watch something on Apple TV+ and end up getting hooked.
