At the recent Apple Special Event, CEO Tim Cook introduced the upcoming Apple TV+, a subscription-based video on demand web TV service. It is said to launch worldwide on 1 November this year on the Apple TV app for S$6.98 per month with a 7-day free trial. Through Family Sharing, you can share one Apple TV+ subscription with up to 6 family members.
What separates Apple TV+ from other platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video is that it only contains original content such as ‘See’, a new epic drama series starring Jason Momoa and Alfre Woodard.
Check out the first official trailer of ‘See’:
The story is set 600 years in the future where humans have lost the sense of sight due to a virus and society has to find new ways to interact with one another and build lives.
One day, a tribal warrior named Baba Voss (Momoa) discovers that his newborn twins are born with sight, the first set of children to be so in centuries.
The trailer doesn’t give away much except that news of this must have somehow spread till it reaches the ears of a “powerful yet desperate” Queen Kane (Sylvia Hoeks) who deems it as witchcraft and demands that the children be killed.
This forces Voss to escape with his tribe and spiritual leader Paris to protect his children. But the journey looks to be perilous as the tribe gets attacked along the way.
It all sounds very dramatic and exciting! I love that the premise is fresh and seeing that ‘See’ is directed by Francis Lawrence who also did three of the four Hunger Games film series, I have confidence that this TV series will be a success.
How do you think this show will fare? And what’s your take on Apple TV+?
