Apple TV+ Will Cost You Only P249 Per Month-For Six People
When Apple announced its budget $699 (roughly P37,000) iPhone 11 earlier this week, everyone went wild. But this little nugget, overshadowed by the news of Apple’s entrance into budget mobile phones, went under the radar: Apple TV+ will cost you only P249 per month for up to six people.
If you divide the fee among the members of your family (or more likely, your group of friends), that’s around only P40 per person compared to the P137.5 you probably chip in for your shared Netflix account.
Apple TV+ goes live on November 1 in 100 countries, including the Philippines, and will be available on the Apple TV app on all Apple devices. Those who purchase a new Apple product like, say, the new super iPhone 11 will also get a one-year free subscription to Apple TV+.
The company says that it’ll release new Apple Originals every month, officially joining the streaming wars to become the most in-demand on-demand video streaming platform on the market. Apple TV+ has strong contenders—Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Disney+—and its low subscription cost is definitely appealing.
So far, it only has a couple of shows lined up, such as See, a dystopian epic starring Jason Momoa; The Morning Show, featuring Hollywood heavyweights Steve Carrell and Jennifer Aniston; and For All Mankind, a big-budget science-fiction drama. All these will be streamed in 4K.
How Apple TV+ will fare against streaming giants like Netflix in the Philippines is up in the air, but that low subscription already has us installing the Apple TV app on our phones.
