AppleTV+ Announces Launch Date Featuring the Debuts of 'The Morning Show,' 'Dickinson,' 'See' and 'For All Mankind'

During the company's annual fall product event, Apple announced the launch date for its forthcoming streaming service including its price point and what content will be available upon launch.

AppleTV+ will launch on Friday, November 1 for $4.99 per month. Four original scripted series will be available at launch - The Morning Show, Dickinson, See and For All Mankind. The documentary The Elephant Queen as well as kid entries Helpsters, Snoopy in Space and Ghostwriter will also be available at launch.

The streaming service says that most of its originals will launch with their first three episodes and then roll out new episodes on a weekly basis. However, some originals are also slated to release their entire seasons all at once. It's currently unclear which programs follow which release strategy.
