Apple TV+ Announced

New Shows, Movies and Documentaries Only From Apple

Apple today announced Apple TV+, the new home for the world’s most creative storytellers featuring exclusive original shows, movies and documentaries. It will be available Fall 2019 via ad-free monthly subscription. Pricing was not announced.

To pull off what essentially amounts to Apple becoming a TV Network it has signed some of the best talent in the business including including Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Octavia Spencer, J.J. Abrams, Jason Momoa, M. Night Shyamalan, Jon M. Chu and more.

The move clearly puts Apple in competition with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, HBO and Showtime as the choices for the most compelling and highest quality original TV shows continues to expand.

Apple’s unique advantage is its access to both your pocket and pocketbook. With over 1 billion Apple devices already in use, the company has the largest on-demand video distribution network — probably ever!

Apple’s original video subscription service initially aims to convey inspiring and authentic stories with emotional depth and compelling characters from all walks of life.

The first Apple TV+ shows/series include:

  • Amazing Stories – by Steven Spielberg
  • See – by Steven Knight, starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard
  • The Morning Show – starring Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell
  • Little America – by Kumail Nanjiani
  • Little Voice – by J.J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles
  • The Helpsters – in partnership with Sesame Workshop
  • Oprah Winfrey has two documentaries in production and book club

Price and Availability

The Apple TV+ monthly subscription service will be available Fall 2019. Price TBD.

Compatibility

Apple TV+ will be available on any Apple device — iPhone, iPad, Mac and Apple TV — and select 2019 Smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Vizio, as well as Roku and Amazon Fire set-top boxes.

Apple announced today its TV App will soon be available on MacOS for viewing on MacBooks and Macs. Not sure why that took so long.

Apple TV+ will be seamlessly integrated into an all-new Apple TV App that also aggregates subscription content from HBO, Showtime, Amazon Prime Video and other sources.
