Apple joins in with Apple TV+ streaming service in November

Netflix, Stan, and Amazon Prime aren’t your only streaming selections come November, as Apple gets its own service in there.

More choice is coming for your entertainment pleasure. You might sit back and watch a film or TV show with Netflix or Stan, or even Amazon’s own service, but in November, Australians will get a little more selection.

You may already know that Disney is bringing its own take on a streaming service to Australia from November 19, offering not just Disney’s movies and shows, but also titles from Pixar, Marvel, National Geographic, and Fox, providing a fairly large scope of content for $8.99 monthly and arriving in 4K.

However Disney won’t be alone. Apple will be adding a streaming service for you to subscribe to, and it even gets a similar name, coming in the form of Apple TV+.

Different to Disney’s offering, Apple TV+ is only offering original content, as it doesn’t have an existing library. There’s no older content like on Netflix or Stan, at least not yet, and everything being offered by Apple on Apple TV+ is an original program, including See, a science-fiction drama set in the future when most of the human population has gone blind, and Morning Wars giving a look in the world of morning television with Steve Carell, Reese Witherspoon, and Jennifer Aniston.

Apple TV+’s November launch will also see a story based on Emily Dickinson in Dickinson, a children’s series from the makers of Sesame Street in Helpsters, a reboot of the kids series Ghostwriter, and the Peanuts gang going to the galaxy in Snoopy in Space.

There will also be content from Oprah Winfrey, plus more on the way after the initial launch, including one from The Sixth Sense‘s M. Night Shyamalan.

November 1 will see the launch of Apple TV+, and for a change, it won’t be coming solely to Apple devices. Much like how Apple Music can be found on both iOS and Android, Apple TV+ will be available on select Samsung TVs, as well as iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Apple TV. It will also arrive in the future on LG and Sony TVs, as well as Amazon Fire TV and macOS Catalina.
