Apple’s big push into original programming has begun with the launch of Apple TV Plus. The service costs $4.99 (N1807) per month, but if you’ve bought an iPhone, iPad, or Mac recently, you’re likely eligible to stream it for the entire first year at no cost. It’s a pretty crafty move on Apple’s part, especially since the lineup of shows is still relatively short on day one. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon are years deep into original productions.
Even 1,807 naira for an unproven catalogue would be a tough sell for some, but a whole lot of people aren’t even going to have to think about it; they’ll just have it.
WHERE CAN I WATCH APPLE TV PLUS?
iPhone and iPad: Apple TV app (preinstalled on iOS 12.3 and later)
Apple TV: Apple TV app (preinstalled on tvOS 12.3 and later)
macOS: Apple TV app (preinstalled on macOS Catalina and later)
People using iOS and iPadOS devices can download Apple TV Plus shows for offline viewing.
CAN I STREAM APPLE TV PLUS ON THE WEB?
Yes. Log in with your Apple ID at http://tv.apple.com. Supported browsers include Google Chrome, Firefox, and Apple’s own Safari.
IS THERE AN ANDROID APP?
Not at this time.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Apple TV Plus is $4.99 (N 1807) per month. New subscribers are eligible for a seven-day free trial.
CAN MULTIPLE PEOPLE SHARE A SUBSCRIPTION?
Apple TV Plus supports Apple’s family sharing feature, which means you and up to five other people can share the same subscription. Here’s how to set up family sharing.
WHAT ABOUT THE FREE YEAR OFFER?
If you’ve recently bought an iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV, you should be prompted to redeem your free year when you open the TV app today. Apple says hardware purchased after September 10th, 2019, is eligible. You’ve got three months to redeem the offer, and the clock starts after the initial setup of your device. All the fine print can be found on Apple’s site here. Note that your subscription will be automatically set to renew once that year-long promotion runs out. So it might be worth setting a reminder to cancel it through your subscription settings should you decide Apple TV Plus, however it looks 12 months on, isn’t worth your $5.
STUDENTS CAN GET IT BUNDLED WITH APPLE MUSIC FOR $5
The discounted Apple Music plan for students now also includes Apple TV Plus for the same $4.99 as before. You get both services for that price.
The Apple Tv plus has sparked conversations and a lot of people are wondering whether, it would supersede Netflix.
