Apple’s Show-Stopping $4.99 (S$6.98) TV+ and Arcade Services Announced

Apple started its September event with two key announcements – its Apple Arcade and Apple TV+ services.

Coming in at USD 4.99 (SGD 6.98), the competitively-priced Apple Arcade & Apple TV+ target similar services in the market like Netflix, Amazon and Google’s Stadia.

Like the Apple Arcade, Apple TV+ features all-new exclusive content by heavyweights in the production industry. TV+ will come with a seven-day free trial, and will be available on the Apple TV app, and on newer Samsung Smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony and VISIO platforms.

Some of the TV+ highlights include “See”, starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard set in a future without sight, “The Morning Show” produced by Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston and starring Steve Carell in a satirical telling of power dynamics in America’s iconic morning news shows.

The service itself will be available from November 1st 2019.


Apple Arcade will bring over 100 exclusive games and can be accessed through the Arcade tab within the App Store.

Showcasing developments from iconic game developers Konami, Capcom, and Annapurna, Apple highlighted the exclusive content and variety.

Phil Shiller, senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing says, “We think customers of all ages are going to be delighted that a single subscription gives the whole family unlimited access to the full catalogue of amazing Apple Arcade games, all without any ads or additional purchases, while knowing every game must meet Apple’s high privacy standards.”

Apple Arcade will be available at USD 4.99 (SGD 6.98) for families with up to six members with Family Sharing. Image: Apple

Some of the myriad titles from a wide array of genres include Gameloft’s arcade-styled multiplayer “Ballistic Baseball”, Sega’s puzzle-filled “ChuChu Rocket! Universe”, and Bandai Namco’s “PAC-MAN PARTY ROYALE” that sports a four-player showdown Battle Mode.

Available come September 19, the gaming service will come with a 1-month free trial.
