At the iPhone 11 series launch event, Apple had announced a free 1-year subscription bundled with new device purchases (new iPhone elevens, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or Apple TV). Further, Hailee Steinfeld, who stars in Dickinson, a new show on Apple TV+ revealed a free subscription offer to Apple Music Student Plan users.

Here’s a list of shows available at the launch of Apple TV Plus.

  • The Morning Show – Starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell
  • See – Starring Jason Mamoa
  • Dickinson – Starring Hailee Steinfeld
  • For All Mankind – Starring Joel Kinnaman
  • Snoopy in Space
  • The Elephant Queen
  • Helpsters
  • Ghostwriter
  • Servant – from M. Night Shyamalan
  • Truth Be Told
  • Oprah’s Book Club

This is an ad-free and on-demand service with 4K HDR content aided by Dolby Atmos. You get to download your favorite shows for offline viewing.

As you see, the features are more or less on par with the current players on the market. Plus, Apple TV+ is short on content at the nascent state. However, when it comes to the monthly charge, Apple has an upper hand. Netflix, one of its prime competition, charges Rs. 499 a month for its standard plan, while its ‘mobile-only plan’ costs Rs 199 per month in India. The service from Amazon is also pricey than Apple’s, coming at Rs 129 a month. And soon Disney+ will also be here, which is just right around the corner. Only time will tell how the Cupertino based giant fares in this streaming race.
