The fourth season of one of Netflix's biggest shows is a huge deal for the streamer. It comes at a time when it is struggling for new subscribers and is already planning an ad-supported tier in an attempt to lure people in. Netflix is a costly option in the streaming world, costing as much as four times the $4.99 that Apple TV+ subscribers currently pay. However, as great a value as Apple TV+ might be, it doesn't have Stranger Things and we all know what we'll be doing this Friday!

That's after we've all changed our Reddit avatars, of course.
