Apple TV+ to launch in the UAE in November

The launch of Apple TV+ will be the latest streaming service to enter the market in Abu Dhabi and Dubai and is expected on the 1st November. The service will cost Dhs 19.99 (US$4.55) per month to subscribe, but will be free of charge for a full year for new Apple products purchases. 

A large number of TV series’, films and programmes will be added to the platform from day one and will focus on original content instead of offering a large catalogue like Amazon Prime or Netflix. 

Content coming to the service at a later stage will include the film Servant by M Night Shyamalan, The Banker staring Samuel L Jackson and more titles that are yet to be announced.
