The world of streaming video is ever-growing and ever-changing. Services, devices and features come and go. Prices and channel lineups fluctuate.

Trying to keep up can be overwhelming. So, we’re cutting through the noise for you and bringing you a roundup of the biggest news from the biggest names in streaming.

Following is a look at what’s changing in November. If you missed the past roundup, though, you might want to first check out “4 Ways Streaming TV Is Changing in October.”

Apple TV+

Apple’s much-heralded streaming service, Apple TV+, launches Nov. 1. (It’s not to be confused with Apple TV, which is Apple’s family of streaming media devices.)

Apple has described its new streaming service as “the first all-original video subscription service.” In other words, it will offer exclusive shows, movies and documentaries. This content will be commercial-free and available on demand.

Apple TV+ will be available via the Apple TV app for various Apple devices as well as via the Apple TV+ website. It will cost $4.99 a month, though a free seven-day trial will be available.

Disney+

Another much-heralded streaming service, Disney+, launches Nov. 12.

It will be home to classics and original programming from Walt Disney Co. as well as the brands it owns — including Marvel, National Geographic, Pixar and Star Wars. This content will be commercial-free and available on demand.

Disney+ will available via various Apple, Android, Chromecast and Roku devices, as well as certain gaming consoles.

You can sign up for the service now, at $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year — unless you’re a Verizon customer.

Disney+ and Verizon announced this week that certain Verizon customers will get 12 months of Disney+ for free. This includes new and existing Verizon 4G LTE and 5G unlimited wireless customers and new Verizon Fios Home Internet and 5G Home customers.

TiVo+

TiVo announced in early October that its new network, TiVo+, would become available in the following weeks. As TiVo describes it:

“Exclusive to TiVo customers, TiVo+ is your one-stop network for an amazing collection of free entertainment. Leave app-flipping in the past and find thousands of the best free shows, movies and videos, right from your TiVo home screen.”

Various channels will be available through TiVo+ when it launches — such as TMZ, Outside TV+, Unsolved Mysteries and Food52 — with “many more” to follow, TiVo says.
