The new service, which is also to cost US$4.99 a month, or NT$170 a month in Taiwan, is to include more than 100 games made for Apple devices and is to be available in 150 nations.

“You can’t find these games on any other mobile platform or subscription service. No game service ever launched as many games and we can’t wait for you to play all of that,” Apple product manager Ann Thai said.

Apple also unveiled updates to its iPad tablet and Apple Watch, also emphasizing stable or lower prices.

The company’s shares closed the day up slightly at US$216.70, while the shares of streaming TV rivals Netflix and Walt Disney Co both finished down about 2 percent.
