Apple TV Plus cost, release date, channels, and everything you need to know


You can now access Apple’s TV Plus service on all manner as device, as the release date of November 1 has finally arrived – but will it, in the words of CEO Tim Cook, be “unlike anything that’s come before”?

We’re currently working through our full review, but we’ve got all the information you could want if you want to give the free seven day trial a go.

We know a lot more about the Apple TV Plus pricing and release date, with a $4.99 / £4.99 / $AU7.99 monthly subscription model that undercuts a lot of competing services like Netflix or Hulu – with the ability to share between six different family members, if you have that many close relatives. 

Plus, when you buy an iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV, you’ll get one year’s subscription free – so, why not watch it?

We’ve been keeping close tabs on the programming planned for the service, and you can check out our guide to Apple TV Plus shows for specific titles featuring everyone from Aquaman’s Jason Mamoa to Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds. Apple already dominates as a seller and distributor for content, so it’ll be interesting to see how they take to making that content themselves.

For all the pricing, launch dates, and hype you need to know about Apple TV Plus, though, read on below.

  • How much will it cost? $4.99 per month / £4.99 / AU$7.99, but when you buy an iPhone, iPad, Mac or Apple TV you’ll get one year’s subscription free.
