Apple has launched a new press site for its upcoming Apple TV+ service, offering quick access to details on each of the movies and series coming to the service.


Feature pages on each title include summaries, release dates, cast lists, trailers and photos, and press contacts.

Apple is currently featuring 15 titles on the press page, eight of which will be launching on November 1 alongside the service's debut. Others will be following in later weeks, while some are still listed only as "coming soon."

Apple TV+ will be priced at $4.99 per month with a one-week free trial. Users who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, or Mac on or after September 10 will qualify for a free one-year subscription. Up to six family members can share a single Apple TV+ subscription through Family Sharing.

Apple needs a bio page for each actor and should have same for writers, directors, cinematographers, producers, etc. People deserve credit and those of us into film want to look deeper. I don’t believe Netflix gives credit to writers or cinematographers in their standard interface. As if by magic these shows just appear!

I'm all in. I love the weekly releases, and the price makes it a no-brainer. This is where quality > quantity. I am looking at you Netflix.
Just re-subscribed to Netflix to literally only watch Breaking Bad again and El Camino. Once I'm done, I'm cancelling. I had a look around and almost all the content is bad.

And Breaking Bad isn't even a Netflix show...once they start losing good licensed content, like Friends and the Office, what will they have?

Uh - interesting - most of the shows are TV-14/TV-MA and over - not what some people were suggesting (i.e, kids, PG13 only shows)
I was just thinking that. I noticed the TV-MA in The Morning Show art and went to the website on purpose to check the others. All of the big dramas are TV-MA.

Yeah, when Apple starts reporting all those free subscriptions that were included with hardware as services revenue, they'll all look like fools for underestimating the scumbaggery of Apple.
Give me a break. Apple's financial performance speaks for itself and they don't have to resort to anything of the sort.

Besides, the fact subscriptions are included with hardware purchases is well known and only a short duration. We are playing the long game here, so that doesn't matter.

They've already stated this is exactly what they're doing...counting every hardware sale as $60 of Apple TV + revenue.

I’m actually quite excited for Apple TV+. I think that the wide variety of shows makes it so that there is something for just about everyone. The low price point of $4.99 a month is lower than Netflix and Disney+ and I think that will help Apple out in the long run. Personally, I’m really looking forward to watching ‘The Morning Show,’ ‘See,’ and ‘Truth Be Told.’ The trailers have been pretty promising thus far.

I wonder if those of us who purchased a new Apple Watch will get a free year of AppleTV+ ?
No, this is from About Apple Tv+ from Apple

"Any new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV, or Mac capable of running the latest iOS, iPadOS, tvOS, or macOS purchased after September 10, 2019, from Apple or an Apple authorized reseller, is eligible."

So does my iPhone 11 pro max from my carrier qualify,

Not exactly. They don't just "make up" $60 out of thin air. It's effectively a discount from hardware and moving it to software, which they've done for years with software and services that come with your iPhone like iOS, Maps. It's accounted for with deferred revenue.

I'm not an accountant, but the free Apple TV+ bundle has already been stated by Apple to have zero impact to earnings.

When you give away free services, you have to account for them. Apple isn't doing anything slimy. They also haven't reported any plans to give a running total of subscribers. I would guess they won't ever do it as it leads you down a bad path like iPhone unit sales. If they can keep it a secret, they likely (and correctly) will.

That's one tiny lineup. They're really going to struggle to bring people in, especially with Disney's huge range of recognisable franchises.

Netflix have nothing to worry about.

Can’t help but wonder if Aniston and/or Witherspoon’s contract required that their show be at the forefront of all the AppleTV+ marketing material.

I'm shocked that outside of Samsung TVs, there still hasn't been more information or dates announced about the Apple TV app on other smart TVs and devices like Roku. Really thought they'd be rolling it out by now to have more eyes on Apple TV+ when it launches.
