On November 2nd, 2019 Apple will launch Apple TV+. In what will be their all-original video subscription service. And will cost just A$7.99 per month with a 7-day trial, but many will get the first year free.
Since announcing the service in March Apple has been revealing content. And sharing teasers, trailers, and hosting several premiers. But it all comes down to Saturday – the day of the launch in Australia.
At launch, there will be eight titles available for streaming and download for offline. All in 4K with Dolby Vision and HDR. While this may not sound like a lot, but the focus for Apple is quality over quantity.
