Apple TV Plus beats Disney to launch

Apple has announced its new streaming service will launch in over 100 countries on 1st November, before the launch of Disney Plus.

Disney announced last month that its new streaming service Disney Plus will debut in the Netherlands, Canada and the US on 12th November.

In the UK, Apple TV+ will cost £4.99 a month, making it significantly cheaper than both Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Apple said original content will be available to subscribers both online and offline via the Apple TV app, which comes pre-installed on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and iPod touch and will soon be on Mac with macOS Catalina.

The Apple TV app is also available on select Samsung smart TVs, and will come to Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future. Customers can also sign up and watch Apple TV+ originals on the web at

Apple also announced its originals will be available worldwide subtitled and/or dubbed in nearly 40 languages, including Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (SDH) or closed captions. Apple TV+ series and movies will also be available with audio descriptions in eight languages.
