With its streaming platform, Apple TV+, Apple is now taking on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. On November 1, the new streaming platform rolled out on in more than 100 countries including India. Apple is offering Apple TV Plus for just Rs 99 per month, much cheaper than Netflix's and Hotstar's.
At present Apple TV+ offers very little content and is mainly focused on all-original videos like "The Morning Show", "See," "Dickinson," "The Elephant Queen", and "For All Mankind." To set a new platform, Apple has introduced a few pricing schemes, including providing one-year free subscription.

Apple TV+ is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, Apple TV (3rd generation), iPod touch and Mac.
