Apple to Unveil Apple TV+ In November
It seems like Apple TV+ will be launching in November. According to some sources, it will cost $9.99 per month.

Sources also revealed that Apple plans to aggressively grow the content on its Apple TV+. They plan to aggressively peruse new partners.
They have already announced 14 shows during the big unveil. It will launch some of them on day one, and add more shows from that roster later.

More Details on Apple’s Apple TV+
With Apple TV+, Apple promises to upend a market which has thus far been dominated by Netflix and Amazon. It is unclear how Apple will fare amid a crowded field of big-name entrants including Disney and AT&T’s HBO.
Their price is a tad higher than the base plan of their competitors. For instance, Amazon Prime Video offers its streaming for $8.99 per month if you pay for an annual subscription. Netflix’s basic standard definition plan starts at $9 per month. Disney’s upcoming service will launch at $6.99 per month, and if you pay $13 per month, it’ll throw in ESPN+ and Hulu subscriptions too.
