Apple had been priming the world with the rumors of its much-hyped streaming service that was deemed as the Netflix-killer. It has kept us waiting for a long time and finally, bam! Their offerings are so immense it makes Netflix and Facebook watch look like a joke.
Apple is yet to announce what price we all have to pay for its premium subscription services. Rumor has it that they might offer a free tier for users to check out its offerings so that they are compelled to stay on the platform, paying along the way. Another theory suggests that Apple might actually give away these shows for free to anyone with an iOS or tvOS device, so the original content would essentially function as an incentive to buy Apple product and bait user to other services.
Apple TV+ is touted to arrive in the fall of 2019.
