Apple has launched Apple TV + streaming service in more than 100 countries, including Russia. It is available through the Apple TV app or tv.apple.com.
By subscribing to Apple TV +, eight original projects are available, including See, Morning Show, and For All Humanity. The service does not have a catalog of third-party films and TV shows.
At the start of the service, almost all the series did not receive Russian voice acting, only Russian-language subtitles. The only exception was the children’s show “Helpers”.
Apple is about to add one original movie or series per month. At the same time, they will not always go out all at once, like on Netflix: for example, the drama “Dickinson” immediately got 10 episodes, and the “Morning Show”, “See” and “For the Sake of Humanity” – only the first three episodes. The rest of the series will be released once a week on Fridays.
Subscription to Apple TV + in Russia is 199 rubles per month, 7 trial days will be free. When purchasing any new Apple device with support for current iOS, tvOS or macOS from September 10, users receive a year of service as a gift if they activate the subscription within three months from November 1.
One subscription can be divided into six family members, TV shows are available for download and viewing offline in the application. Apple TV + is available both on Apple devices in the TV application and on tv.apple.com for third-party devices.
