Apple TV+ will has a large selection of original series in the pipeline available at or soon after launch. This includes the return of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories, a new show based on pulp science-fiction stories Spielberg read as a kid. This show is a reboot of his show of the same name that ran from 1985-87 on NBC.
What's most interesting about the Apple TV+ announcement that it will be beating Disney+ to market by 11 days–Disney+ arrives on November 12. Additionally, Apple's service will be cheaper coming in at $5 per month over Disney+'s $7 a month–or $13 a month when Disney+ is bundled with ESPN+ and the ad-supported version of Hulu.
