“Apple TV+ and Arcade are accessible across iPhones, iPads, iPod touch, MacBooks and Apple TV”
Apple kickstarted its biggest launch event of the year by revisiting the Apple TV+ and Arcade services that were initially announced back in March. With the TV+ subscription, the Cupertino giant officially entered into the video streaming segment. Apple has announced that the service will be available starting from November 1st in over 100 countries across the globe, priced at Rs 99 per month (with family sharing), and is also offering a one-week free trial. It will be available across iPhones, iPads, iPod touch, MacBooks and Apple TV via the new Apple TV app.
The company is also offering a one-year free subscription to those who buy a new Apple iPhone, iPad or Mac, which is quite a surprise. Apple TV+ line-up of original shows, movies and documentaries include “The Morning Show,” “Dickinson,” “See,” “For All Mankind” and “The Elephant Queen.” Family Sharing allows up to six family members to share one Apple TV+ subscription. The Apple TV+ originals will be available in nearly 40 languages through subtitled and/or dubbed, including Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (SDH) or closed captions.
As for the Apple Arcade gaming subscription service, it’s accessible via the new Arcade tab within the App Store. The company mentioned that there would be over 100 games at launch and new games will be added every month. Much like the Apple TV+, these games are playable across iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, and users can pick up where they left off from any device. The service will be officially available starting September 19th in over 150 countries at $4.99 per month with a one-month free trial.
