Apple has on Thursday said that it would extend free Apple TV+ subscriptions, which were set to end within the next three months, through February.
The company had bundled a one-year free subscription to its video-streaming service Apple tv+ with the purchase of an Apple product.
The free subscription debuted in November last year with shows such as ‘Oprah’s Book Club’ and Jennifer Aniston’s ‘The Morning Show’.
What is Apple TV+
Apple TV+ is a streaming service featuring Apple Originals — award-winning series, compelling dramas, groundbreaking documentaries, kids’ entertainment, comedies, and more — with new Apple Originals added every month.
It is commercial-free. Some shows release all episodes at once. Other shows add new episodes every Friday. You can then watch them on-demand anytime, anywhere.
It is available on the Apple TV app on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices, as well as at tv.apple.com, for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial.
If you currently pay for the streaming service on a yearly plan that will renew between November and January.
Moreover, it will also automatically extend until February 2021 at no additional charge.
The extra three months will allow the video streaming platform’s users to explore more of the content catalogue, including recent hits like Ted Lasso and upcoming titles such as Apple Original film On The Rocks.
The extra three months also helps Apple entice customers with second season launches of some of its flagship shows.
