Apple Aiming to Launch Streaming Service Ahead of Disney

Posted on

According to an article in the Financial Times, tech giant Apple is reportedly spending $6 billion on original shows and is trying to beat Disney’s streaming platform Disney+ to market.

Apple’s streaming service was expected to launch this fall. According to the FT report, Apple is looking to turn its service live in the next two months and before Disney launches its streaming service on November 12th.

It was in March that Apple revealed its service dubbed TV+ on its campus in Cupertino and had confirmed that at least seven series would be on the service. One show is produced by Steven Spielberg.

The company is $9.99 a month for TV+, three dollars more than Disney+, according to a Bloomberg report.

It was this week that Apple released the trailer for “The Morning Show,” a drama that will air on Apple’s streaming service and features Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon.
