Apple Arcade will cost $4.99 per month and launch September 19th

Apple's game subscription service, Apple Arcade, was unveiled at a dedicated services event back in March.

Apple has announced that it will begin streaming some of its original content for Apple TV+ starting November 1 for $4.99/month. If accurate, that would have put it at the high end of streaming services.

On Tuesday, Apple also showed off See, a new sci-fi original starring Jason Momoa about a world where most humans have lost the ability to, well, see.

This is breaking news as Apple is still on stage making new announcements. Today, the company announced that Apple Arcade, its long-awaited "Netflix for games", will arrive on September 19th and cost $4.99 per month.


Apple TV Plus is offering a free year to those who purchase certain new devices.

And it will undercut the upcoming Disney+ service on a price level (though, from the look of things, not on a content level).

Apple used the March event as an opportunity to bring out some of the big talent behind the nearly two dozen series that have been ordered for Apple TV+ to preview their programs, including Aniston, Witherspoon, Steven Spielberg, Steve Carell, Momoa, Alfre Woodard, Kumail Nanjiani, Big Bird, J.J. Abrams and Sara Bareilles. It will integrate with the Apple TV Channels service, which lets users subscribe to other providers like HBO, STARZ, and Showtime individually.

Apple Arcade is Apple's gaming service that gets you access to the massive library of not just the usual games from the App Store, but special titles from the biggest names in gaming that will be exclusive to the Apple Arcade as well.
