How much is Apple TV+?
Apple TV+ costs $4.99 a month, after a seven-day trial.
In addition, the Apple TV+ subscription can be shared among up to six family members (including yourself) at no additional cost.
What you get in an Apple TV+ subscription
Apple TV+ is ad-free, all content is available for streaming on demand, and content can be downloaded locally so you can watch it offline if you know you’ll be somewhere without internet access.
Even after a one-week free trial, Apple TV+ is significantly less expensive than Netflix (which offers a $9 per month plan, but the most popular tier is $13 per month).
One reason Apple’s streaming service is priced so affordably is that there’s no back catalog – unlike Netflix, Apple has made no mention of licensing any TV shows or movies for its new service. It’s all original content.
Apple’s already added shows and movies with star-studded talent, including Oprah Winfrey, Steve Carell, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and more. Additional shows and movies will be added regularly.
