Alongside the new TV show, selections that feature in the programme will also appear in the Apple Books app on the show's own dedicated page.

Oprah's Book Club premieres November 1 on Apple TV+. Apple has announced entertainment powerhouse, Oprah Winfrey, is bringing her famed book club, Oprah's Book Club, to Apple's highly-anticipated streaming service, Apple TV+, which is set to launch on November 1.

"Reading opened up a whole world for me beyond the red dirt road and my grandmother's porch in Mississippi", Winfrey said in the statement. "Reading opened up a whole world for me beyond the red dirt road and my grandmother's porch in MS", said Oprah Winfrey.

The move is being seen as mutually beneficial for both parties, with Apple CEO, Tim Cook himself highlighting that "few people in the world can bring us together like Oprah".

Winfrey stopped by the morning show to announce the first selection for her book club collaboration with Apple, The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates. First launching Oprah's Book Club in 1996 on her iconic talk show, Winfrey's selections gave aspiring authors instant notoriety and sent book sales soaring.

Apple is spending US$2 billion on original programming alongside Oprah's Book Club, in a bid to fill its streaming service with original content much like Netflix, who spent a reported $13 billion on content previous year. With every book purchase, Apple will make a contribution to the American Library Association.

"I got some heads up", he said on This Morning. The ad-free service will be available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac and other platforms, including online, for US$4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
