There are SO SO SO many streaming services out there anymore, it feels almost impossible to subscribe to them all! And with prices of each rising each year, a lot of people have started to cut down on the number of services they subscribe to.
Adding the lower, ad-supported tier has ALWAYS been part of the pricing model of Hulu, but recently Netflix, Disney +, and HBO Max have added it as a more affordable option for those looking to cut costs.
Now add Apple TV + to the mix. They’ve reportedly been looking to sell ad inventory to add to the platform in 2023. Apple TV + remains the cheapest of the streaming services at just $4.99 a month but only has about 5% of the streaming market share.
The big question is what the cost will be. Will the ad-supported tier be the current 4.99 cost and the ad-free version will go up to a higher amount (this is what Disney + is doing. Their price is currently 7.99 a month, which will remain the price for the ad-tier when it launches soon, and the ad-free tier will jump to $11 a month)? Will the ad-tier end up free for users?
Do you watch Apple TV +? We have it but barely use it. It’s basically just for us to watch Ted Lasso over and over again!
