      If you have purchased a new Apple device (iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV or iPod touch) since September you are make eligible for a free year of the newly launched streaming service Apple TV+. Just go into the 'TV' app on your iPhone, Apple TV or Mac to activate!

      After your free year the price changes to 4.99 a month, but you can get a 15% discount by changing your plan to an annual subscription (you can do this now without affecting your free trial - see this tweet for more info twitter.com/bzamayo/status/1190182364980355072)

      It seems that you don’t need to buy a device as long as you are or know a student. Just activate your free 6 month trial of Apple Music through UNiDAYS and you get access. Seems that way when they emailed it anyway. See screenshot....

      Apple is never free, what’s the minimum spend?
      Great just got my year free because I got the iPhone pro max 👌
      When I clicked into the 7 day it mentioned I am eligible for a year free. Subscribed and immediately cancelled to ensure it doesn’t auto renew.

      There seems to be very little content on there at present, I’d be very disappointed if I’d paid for it frankly!
      Probably best to wait till 2022 as that will give Apple enough time to make it worth £4.99 per month.

Either that or cancel it for a year until the shows grow and new seasons get released then sign up again.



      The nice thing about these streaming services is they are all 30 day rolling contracts so we can pick and choose with no real financial hardship. Should spple tv+ becpme competitive in the future i would have no qualms about re-subscribing..

      But it's going to take a decent chunk of their massive cash pile (which i believe is bigger than the US Government's!) to get anywhere near netflix levels of even original content let alone third party stuff (which is a dwindling marketplace) and they have been extremely reluctant to spend that wonga in the past (on acquisitions for instance) for fear of losing it. I get the argument that unlike netflix apple have other income streams to prop up an ailing part but I'm not convinced (judging by the content at launch) how really committed to this particular cause they are. Whereas netflix, on past expenditure/actions, are wholly willing to fight to the death for their share in the market because this is all they have.

      Even if apple TV+ doubled netflix's current $13 billion a year investment in original content it would still take many many years to catch up. Will apple spend $26 billion a year on content when, I suspect, the vast majority of their subscribers (certainly in the first year) will come from doling out free 12 months' subs to device buyers? It would be a huge gamble, even for a company as big as apple.

      Probably worth updating the expiry date of this offer to 1st February 2020 as this offer is only valid from 1st November 2019 to this date.

      But problem is it won't cost that then
      Does it work if I buy the device from amazon?

      Not valid for watch purchases?


      Gutted as just got one spending £450 and can’t get this
      So, very much not free. And if it were, it should be in freebies
      Have the rules changed, I though you could only put free when you could get the offer without spending any money...
      I bought a new iPad for my in-laws and they aren't likely to use Apple TV so are happy to let me use the free year. Presumably I need to activate it by using the new iPad and my apple ID? Or can I do it from another (older) device with proof of purchase?

      I’m in a similar boat, bought an iPad for my grandma.

      I’m guessing you could sign in 1st, claim the year free and then sign out and set it up like normal?

      Thanks, yeah I figured that would be the way to do it. I'm sure they won't mind... I'll be the one setting it up for them anyway as they're slight technophobes!
      It says one week but look at the renewal date it’s 12 months from now
