Apple Makes Some Apple TV+ Shows Available For Free Streaming Due To Ongoing Pandemic
With everyone forced to stay home thanks to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Apple continues to do its best to make sure that we’re all safe, entertained, and educated. The company has already shared 30 new creative tasks that kids can enjoy and now it’s making some Apple TV+ shows available for free, too.
While Apple already offers Apple TV+ for free to anyone who buys certain Apple devices, this is slightly different.
No purchase is necessary, and Apple is only offering a select number of shows for people to try out. Right now those include Little America, Servant, For All Mankind, Dickinson, Snoopy in Space, Helpsters, Ghostwriter, and The Elephant Queen.
Some of those show are absolutely worth checking out even at the normal $4.99 per month asking price. Being able to watch them for free is pretty great.
People can watch the shows on their Apple TV, iPad, iPhone, Mac, or the Apple TV app on smart devices and televisions.
All you need to do is sign in with a valid Apple ID – but again, you don’t need to sign up for the $4.99 per month subscription to get started.
While this does give people something to do while stuck at home, this isn’t an entirely selfless act on Apple’s part. By giving everyone access to shows it can hope to tempt more people into subscriptions which, as we know, is Apple’s big growth area right now.
