Apple TV Ready To Disrupt Your TV Habits

Tomorrow, Apple will be joining streaming giants Netflix and Amazon Prime in competing for our viewership after they launch their own streaming platform, ‘Apple TV’.

Apple have undercut its competitors by pricing their monthly subscription service at £4.99 a month and free for a whole year for those who purchase a new Apple device. One subscription allows the use of Apple TV on 6 devices. In comparison Netflix charge £8.99 a month for use of its service on multiple devices. Amazon’s Prime Video charge’s £5.99 a month for their TV service.

Apple may be dipping in to an already crowded market but with over 19 million people across the UK using streaming platforms and 2 out of 5 adults using them as their main entertainment source there may be enough room for everyone.








Apple TV will include a mixture of new original titles and old TV and Film favourites. Ten star studded Apple originals have already been announced and will be available to binge watch when the service goes live. They have pulled out all the stops with big names like Jenifer Aniston, Reece Witherspoon, Jason Mamoa and even snoopy on board but only time will tell if this will be enough to convert viewers from their favourite platforms.

With Disney launching their own streaming platform in the coming months with nostalgic favourites and new adaptions under their belt creating even more entertainment choices and competition.The battle of the streaming platforms has already began and as an audience get ready to reap the benefits.
