Apple Is Extending Apple TV+ Free Trials Through February 2021
If you’re coming to the end of your free year of Apple TV+ and are still on the fence about paying the $4.99 per month to keep it around, we have good news – Apple is extending that trial through February 2021.
We saw an report earlier on this matter that Apple might be considering such a move, and while it hasn’t yet confirmed this, 9to5Mac believes the plan has been set in motion.
The report doesn’t say where they got the information, but they do seem pretty convinced that it’s legit. Analyst Rene Ritchie has also been given the same information, too.
Here’s the breakdown. If you started a free year of Apple TV+ between November 1st and January 31st, your end date for your free trial will now last until the end of February, giving you up to an extra three months of free access. If you signed up in February or later, there will be no change as your trial already lasts beyond the February date.
Anyone on the annual plan will also be credited for the free three months that everyone else is getting, while anyone who is set to renew between November and January will also see their renewal date pushed through February 2021.
The reason for the move seems to be obvious – Apple isn’t sure that people will pay up and wants to make sure they have more time to sample the new content that has landed in recent weeks. Yet more of that content is set to arrive in the coming weeks and months, too.
We’re told that Apple will be notifying Apple TV+ subscribers about the move in the coming days.
