Apple TV + and the Apple Arcade video and game subscription service were announced in March by the apple company at an event where services were the highlight. Now there is news in the national press suggesting subscription prices of $ 9.99 and $ 4.99 per month for TV and gaming, respectively.
According to Bloomberg news, Apple may be planning to launch Apple TV and the video service by November. However, the platform will feature only five early-stage films: The Morning Show, Aquaman, Truth Be Told, the Amazing Stories series and the multi-episode documentary Home. The apple company is expected to expand its "catalog" of movies in the coming months and should bet on a "free trial" based on information released by anonymous sources to the site.
However, the site asked for clarification from an Apple spokesman who declined to comment. It was up to Tim Cook to share a tweet about Apple's service, but it still announced nothing.
The technology giant is thus entering an increasingly competitive market, led by Netflix and Amazon, whose service does not exceed $ 8.99 a month. The news comes the same day Disney announced the release dates of its new streaming service, also for November, and which devices could be used, with Apple TV being one of them. Disney + will feature more early-stage films and series, priced between $ 8.99 and $ 9.99, depending on the country.
Apple TV will put TV series in one place, whether it's movies or sporting events. The new app will bring together hundreds of content, but users will only pay to see what they really want to see. That is, programs on demand and without advertising, either online or offline with the best possible image and passable to the whole family.
This Monday was also marked by news from the 9to5Mac portal, which said a promotional message revealed that the Apple gaming app will cost $ 4.99 a month. Arcade is a subscription program that includes over 100 new and exclusive games that can be played on almost any apple brand line of equipment. However, the company has not made any statements about these rumors about this service, which could be released in September.
This news comes at a time when the latest annual report for the period April-June revealed that Apple's service category is the company's second largest after the iPhone. With sales of $ 11.455 billion, this figure means a 13% increase over the same period last year.
