Apples new streaming service is set to cost less than competing streaming services.

Following the announcement of the cheap streaming service shares of Netflix, Disney and Roku fell in the stock market as Apple announces at a price of just $4.99 per month.

The competing platform currently price there streaming services at $6 a month for Hulu, $7 a month for Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video at $9 a month with Netflix and HBO becoming more pricey at more than $10.

As pricing between services become increasingly competitive some have opted to provide bundles. One example is Disney who provides Disney Plus, ESPN Plus and Hulu for a $13 bundle.

Despite these efforts leading streaming services still fell in stock due to Apple’s announcement with Disney -2.76%, Netflix -3.25% and Roku experiencing a large loss of -12.62%.

Another aspect that has factored into the loss for competing for streaming services is the fact that Apple has also announced that customers who buy Apple products such as a Mac, iPhone, or Apple TV can enjoy a free year of Apple TV Plus, thus making the deal more appealing.

This announcement comes at a time where streaming services are currently seeing a shift as several new platforms are underway with HBO Max and Comcast just some examples of new streaming services that will be launched in the near future.
