A lot of people must have enjoyed the free one-year Apple TV+ subscription. However, it is time to start paying for the same as the deal is about to get over. For all those unfamiliar about what is being discussed, Apple announced a free one-year subscription for all those who purchase Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac for a limited time offer in 2019.
To subscribe with Apple TV+, you need to have an update of at least iOS 12.3 or later, tvOS 12.3 or later, and Mac Catalina. Without the required updates, you won’t be able to stream using the Apple TV+ service.
Everyone was surprised when Apple officially announced the cost Apple TV+ subscription, which is $4.99 per month. However, what was more surprising was the fact that it is coming up with a free subscription for a year for a few fortunate people.
The best part about using the new streaming service is to be able to share your Apple TV+ account with up to six family members without any additional payment. It enables you to create a separate ID and password for each member so that no one can disturb others streaming experience.
After introducing a new streaming platform, Apple did a great job in bringing series after series for the service. It was a sweet experience for a lot of people out there, but now the deal is finally coming to an end.
According to the reports, all the people who had signed up for the new Apple streaming service in November 2019, right after the streaming platform was launched will have to start paying by the end of October 2020. It also means that all the subscribers will see a deduction of $4.99 from their account by the beginning of the next month.
On the other hand, if you signed up for Apple TV+ a little later than November 2019, you’ve still got time to enjoy your free streaming experience. To keep a check on your free trial expiry, you can check the same in the Settings app under your Apple ID.
If you’re using your iPhone, go to the ‘Settings’ app and tap on your profile name on the top of the window. Next, click on the ‘Subscriptions’ tab to look for the next billing date. However, if you want to discontinue the service, go to the Apple TV option and hit the ‘Cancel Free Trial’ option. You need to note that once you cancel your subscription, it’ll end immediately. It also means that you won’t have the chance to stream for the rest of the free trial period.
Fortunately, there is an option for a favorable deal if you never want to cancel your Apple TV+ subscription. Apple allows you to take a subscription for an entire year, which is much cheaper than paying every month. The deal comes at $49.99 for a complete year. Sounds great, right?
Who doesn’t like getting their hands on some great deals? It has happened with almost everyone; when you ask for a Netflix account from your friends and they deny, you finally purchase it for yourself so that you don’t miss on some great shows. You’ll similarly have to start paying for Apple TV+, which is sad, but it comes at a great price, at least much cheaper than streaming platforms Netflix and Hotstar.
