CUPERTINO, California: Apple is finally taking on Netflix with
its own streaming television service. Uncharacteristically, it’s
offering it at a bargain price — $5 a month beginning on Nov.
1.
Walt Disney Co. is launching its own assault on Netflix the same
month, for just $7.
It may be sheer coincidence that the combined cost of both Apple
and Disney subscriptions will still be a dollar less than
Netflix’s main plan, priced at $13 a month. But the intent to
disrupt Netflix’s huge lead in the streaming business couldn’t
be clearer.
Apple delivered the news Tuesday while also unveiling three new
iPhones that won’t look much different than last year’s models
other than boasting an additional camera for taking pictures from
extra-wide angles.
