Apple TV+ debuted at $4.99 per month, and, for what it's worth, the company hasn't changed the price for the video streaming service. But, that doesn't mean the price points remain the same for the primary competitors out there in the wild, unfortunately. And, sure enough, another price hike is in the works for a pair of popular options.
Another month, another batch of new movies and TV shows being added to the mix for Apple TV+. Below, you'll find a quick list of what's coming to Apple TV+ starting in the month of August.
Physical, the series on Apple TV+ starring Rose Byrne, is one of the more popular shows on the streaming service. We bring it up because it's what's considered a "dark comedy", getting folks to laugh at things that they might not normally. And if you happen to be a fan of good ol' gallows humor, then Apple might have another option for you to check out in the near future called Bad Sisters.
See has become one of the staples for Apple TV+ to this point, being one of the best series available on the streaming service. It might not be for everyone, but the sci-fi apocalyptic tale about humans who have lost the ability to see, but still strive to live in a brutal world, is pretty great. Plus, the action is fantastic.
For any Apple TV+ subscribers out there looking for another family-friendly series to jump into, Surfside Girls may just the ticket. The upcoming series is set to premiere in August, and, with it, bring some good old-fashioned treasure hunting to the streaming platform.
Apple TV+ teased the upcoming limited series Five Days at Memorial back in June. But, with a release date slated for mid-August, the company is now ready to offer up a proper official trailer. Which gives us an even better look at the cast, and, most importantly, the story.
While June leaned heavily into new seasons of existing shows, like Physical and Home, it looks like July is all about the new-new. That doesn't mean Apple TV+ isn't leaving some room for a brand new season of an existing property, though. And one of the service's best, at that.
While there was a bit of a lull throughout the year that was 2021, Apple has been working pretty consistently to bring new content to Apple TV+ on a pretty regular basis throughout 2022. And that trend continues leading into July, too, with a handful of new shows set to arrive. And that includes the family-friendly series Best Foot Forward.
See started out as one of the more "out there" ideas for Apple TV+, giving the streaming service a big dose of sci-fi apocalyptic storytelling, with a lot of hand-to-hand combat that was actually pretty great to watch. The first season started out a bit rough, but by the time the final episode aired it was easily one of the best shows not only one Apple's video streaming service, but just in general.
Apple TV+ has plenty of thrillers to watch, from Defending Jacbob to Severance, and plenty of other shows in between. But there's plenty of room for more. And the streaming service has one more on deck that will make its premiere in late July.
Trying is inching closer to its third season, and Apple TV+ is finally gearing up the marketing machine around one of the best comedies available on the streaming service. It might not garner as much attention as Ted Lasso, but this family story is certainly worth checking out.
Netflix has been around for so long now, some folks might consider it an institution. Others, though, just another streaming option in an ocean of them. Maybe it's the streaming service's age that made executives feel like it didn't need to go the route of an ad-supported option over the years. But, times change, the competition gets fierce, and suddenly you're hoping advertisements can save the day.
