Global tech and media giant Apple has set a launch date and price point for its upcoming subscription streaming service, Apple TV+.

Apple TV+ will launch Nov. 1 in over 100 countries and regions. The service will be available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac and other platforms, including online, for US$4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial. Regional prices will vary, with Apple TV+ set at CA$5.99 in Canada and £4.99 in the UK. “Family Sharing” will allow up to six people to use a single subscription.

As of today, customers who purchase any iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch or Mac can receive one year of Apple TV+ for free.

The service will be ad-free and feature a number of original titles at launch like B.C.-shot See starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodward; Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon’s The Morning Show, produced by Bron Studio’s venture Media Res; and Snoopy in Space, an original from Peanuts Worldwide and DHX Media.

Most recently, Apple picked up the TIFF-premiering feature doc Dads, from director Bryce Dallas Howard, produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard’s Imagine Documentaries and Nine Muses Entertainment, in association with Dove Men+Care. The service will also debut the feature nature doc The Elephant Queen and two original documentary projects from Oprah Winfrey: Toxic Labor (working title), which will explore sexual harassment, abuse and assault in the workplace, and an untitled second project that will examine topics surrounding mental health. Winfrey will also revive her famous book club at Apple.
