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.

Hopefully they come up with custom bundle packages. It just makes sense.
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 :)
Wish they would offer a one year option for iCloud. That 99¢ per month charge bugs me. Don’t ask why lol.
You are just misguided.
