Apple TV+ Subscription Service For Original Shows Announced

Apple TV+ will feature ad-free original shows, movies and documentaries via monthly subscription. Coming Fall 2019. Price TBD.

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 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.
