Apple has officially launched Apple TV+, its new pay-monthly Netflix-like subscription streaming service. To celebrate the launch, Apple is giving customers who have recently purchased any new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod touch one year of Apple TV+ membership for free.
Subscribers will have unlimited access to Apple TV+ during the one year membership, with access to ‘See’, starring Jason Momoaand and ‘The Morning Show’, starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston which is reported to have cost over $150 million for the full season.
Although in the past we’ve seen trials for services such as Apple Music and Apple Arcade, never before has Apple offered one year free of any of its services, with Apple CEO Tim Cook calling the offer “a gift” to Apple users.
How to get one year free Apple TV+ membership
- Open the Apple TV app on a device signed in with your Apple ID
- Select any Apple TV+ show from the Watch Now tab
- Wait for the blue “Enjoy 1 Year Free” button to appear and press it
- Press Continue on the next screen and confirm your subscription by authentication with either Face ID, Touch ID or your password
Apple notes to take advantage of the free membership deal, the offer must be claimed in the Apple TV app within 3 months after first setting up your new device. To see the offer appear, you will need to sign in with your Apple ID on your new device.
