StreamSaver will launch this month, Roberts said at a MoffettNathanson investor conference, but did not give an exact date.

“We’ve been bringing video together successfully and creatively for 60 years,” Roberts said at the conference. “And so, this is the latest iteration of that and I think it’s going to be a pretty compelling package.”

Apple TV+ alone now costs $9.99 per month, up from $6.99 last year. Apple’s TV arm contributed to record revenues in the company’s services sector, The Hollywood Reporter reported last year. NBC’s Peacock, launched in July 2020, has 34 million paying subscribers and includes programming from Bravo, Hallmark, WWE, NBC Sports and NBC, among other channels.
