Apple’s streaming service — the appropriately named Apple TV Plus — will reportedly launch in November for $9.99. This is the same window in which Disney’s upcoming Disney Plus service is set to launch.

Bloomberg reported that Apple TV Plus will start off with a small selection of shows and movies, before slowly expanding its catalogue. A free trial version is possible, said the anonymous sources.

At $9.99, the Apple plan is more expensive than both Netflix’s basic plan and Disney Plus (though cheaper than Netflix’s $12.99 standard plan, which is the one that allows you to watch on two devices in HD).

Apple plans to launch a wide variety of shows including The Morning Show, a dramedy about the fast-paced, high-stakes world of morning talk shows, starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, and Reese Witherspoon. Also in the lineup are a sci-fi dystopian thriller starring Jason Momoa, a series about a world where the USSR beat the US to the moon, a Sesame Street spin-off called Helpsters, and a coming-of-age comedy about the life of Emily Dickinson.
