Bob Iger Steps Down From Apple Board as Streaming War Heats Up

On the heels of Apple’s launch and pricing announcement about its new streaming service, the tech giant has announced that Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Iger has stepped down from its board.

In a Sept. 13 SEC Filing, Apple disclosed that Iger resigned Sept. 10.

Apple Sept. 10 announced its service Apple TV+ would bow Nov. 1 — a little over a week before the launch of Disney’s streaming service Disney+ Nov. 12 — and at $4.99 — undercutting Disney+’s $6.99 a month regular price (although special offers put the cost under $4 a month).
