Apple TV+ Launches With New $49.99 Annual Subscription Option, Save $10 Per Year

Apple has quietly introduced an annual subscription option for Apple TV+, priced at $49.99 in the United States, $59.99 in Canada, £49.99 in the United Kingdom, and €49.99 in many other European countries.


In the United States, the $49.99 annual subscription provides a savings of $9.89 per year compared to a $4.99 per month subscription, which totals $59.88 in a year. In other words, the annual subscription effectively provides 12 months of Apple TV+ access for the price of 10 months for paying upfront.

To switch to the annual subscription plan on an iOS device, open the TV app, tap on your profile in the top-right corner, tap on Manage Subscriptions, tap on Apple TV+, and select the one-year option. Those with a free one-year trial will not be billed until expiration of that trial on October 31, 2020 or later.

Apple TV+ launched today and here is everything to know.

They really need to do a bundle in the future.

Apple Music
Apple Arcade
Apple TV+
iCloud Storage
Apple News+

Hopefully they come up with custom bundle packages. It just makes sense.

Still not worth it with the very little amount of content they have.

It is quite odd. Cause they advertise the service as if it was like a Netflix or a Hulu. But all they really are is just like a studio that is dabbling in some content they produce. Certainly not enough to charge $5 for.??‍♂️

Maybe five shows and one or two possibly good. Not a very spectacular lunch and not worth the money right now. I got free for year though with my new iPhone 11 Pro Max purchase however.

Nine shows, but some people won’t like any ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But it’s literally day one. There are something like 40-50 shows in various stages of production, many of which will hit the service before tens/hundreds of millions of customers hit the end of their one year trial.

I know people complain about “subscription fatigue”, but really? $4 is the price of one iTunes rental. A month’s worth of streaming for the price of a two hour movie... $4 is really “not worth it”? Seems like an iffy argument (to me).

True, there’s not a lot of content now, but it doesn’t really take all that much to make it “worth” $4, does it? One or two series I enjoy; that’s all it would take for me. If I go out to lunch for work that’s $15-20. Or I could get 4-5 months of AppleTV+.

Yes, Disney+ is only $7/month, so on a shovel-full basis AppleTV+ might look “expensive”. Luckily, I can afford both and don’t have to choose between the two :)

One year price option for AppleTV+ is good.

Wish they would offer a one year option for iCloud. That 99¢ per month charge bugs me. Don’t ask why lol.

Uh, I’m pretty sure they made it clear in their keynote dedicated to Apple TV+ that they were producing content only. That’s not like Netflix or Hulu. Apple is among the other channels featured in Apple TV Channels, a feature that led up to Apple TV+.

You are just misguided.

I’m using the one year trial.
For all the mankind is very very good. If the quality is going to stay at this level, I’m going to pay the subscription.

I really don't understand all the whiners.

What else are we supposed to do here besides complain about stuff?

Although I agree with you. This $5 per month will go quietly unnoticed alongside the dozens of other $5 per month which go the same way. It's remarkably easy to forget about your subscriptions. It's a magical sea of five dollar bills... floating away...

Totally agree… I have YouTubeTV Which gives me local channels plus a bunch of sports channels and national brand channels for $50 a month HBO for $15
(which in my humble opinion contains the best new content of any of the providers at this point)and I have an Amazon prime acct so there’s just no reason why I need AppleTV+. And for the record YouTubeTV is great… You can share it with family who live nearby, and with VPN you can enjoy your content from most places in the world with decent internet speeds.

I’m enjoying that show also.

Also The Morning Show, my wife is a big Jennifer and Reese fan, so, she’s loving it.

The monthly is cheap, and it’s bound to get better. I’m in for the year.
