California-based tech giant Apple may roll out Apple TV+ in November at $9.99 per month after a free trial, Bloomberg reports. The service will be rolled out in the US, Canada, Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand and will compete directly with Disney’s streaming service.

The company is targeting $50 billion in sales of movie and television service by 2020. The streaming service will be Apple’s fifth major digital subscription offering.

Apple’s pricing is higher than its closest competitors. In India, a Netflix subscription costs between Rs 500 and 800. Amazon’s Prime Subscription costs Rs 999 a year, and Hotstar charges Rs 299 per month for its premium content.

Moneycontrol could not independently verify the story.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment when approached by Bloomberg.

Apple is still weighing different strategies to release content. The company might release three episodes of some programmes, followed by weekly installments, sources told the news agency.

The company is placing a big bet on its video content, spending close to $300 million on two seasons of The Morning Show alone, sources told the news agency.
