The War Is On: Netflix, Roku & Disney Shares Drop Following Apple’s Cheaper Streaming Service Announcement

Shortly after the announcement of Apple‘s “cheaper streaming service” at its recent Keynote Event, Netflix, Roku and Disney all saw drops in their shares.

Although many already predicted that the launch of the service would shake up the streaming world, the main surprise came in the form of the staggering $4.99 USD price of the ad-free service.

Additionally, Apple noted that anyone that purchased a Mac computer, iPhone or Apple TV would receive one year of the Apple TV+ streaming service for free.
