Apple TV+ debuts in the Philippines on November 1

MANILA, Philippines – Apple TV+, Apple's new streaming service, makes it to the Philippines on the same day as most of the rest of the world: November 1. It will be priced at P249 per month, the same as the $4.99 US rate.

The price undercuts market leader Netflix's rates, whose cheapest package is P370 per month, limited to one person and standard definition. An Apple TV+ membership can accommodate up to 6 family members and offer 4K content. It is premature, however, to compare the two – which will have different content and pros and cons – until the Apple service officially launches. 

Here are some of the original shows on the platform, along with descriptions from Apple

Apple TV+ is also free for a year if you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV. Apple TV+ also has a 7-day free trial period. Check out the official page for Apple TV+ here to see the upcoming shows for the platform. –
