Apple finally told us when Apple TV+ would be available during the iPhone event yesterday. It also told us how much it would cost, with the $4.99 asking price surprising pretty much everyone. The streaming service will offer exclusive content with some very big names involved.

While the $4.99 price is impressive, Apple also confirmed that it would be taking things a step further, too. According to Apple’s announcement, the company will give customers a free year of access to Apple TV+, for the entire family, when they buy an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch Apple TV, or a Mac.

That ultimately means that if you buy a new iPhone every year, or someone in your family does, you’ll never pay a penny for Apple TV+. With iPads and Macs included in the deal, that possibility increases.

Apple has already announced some huge shows like Jason Mamoa’s See, Ronald D. Moore’s For All Mankind, and an entire Oprah Winfrey show about books. Even if you’re only interested in one or two shows, the $4.99 price is a steal. If you can get Apple TV+ for free, it’s almost criminal.

Apple TV+ will be available on November 1st in more than 100 countries. You can watch it on iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple TV, and even an iPod touch. If none of those are available, you can even watch via the tv.apple.com website. And if you’re not sure it’s for you, there will also be a seven-day free trial to enjoy as well.
