Apple TV+ is finally here, and there is a whole host of content to enjoy on the new streaming platform. Notable names include Oprah, Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Jason Momoa.
Here is everything you need to know – and our latest coverage of the launch.
When does Apple TV+ launch?
Apple TV+ launched to the public on Friday, November 1, and is on offer for $4.99 a month after a seven day free trial.
How can I watch the content?
All of the content on Apple TV+ is ad-free and can be downloaded to be watched online. Any device which can access Apple’s new TV app can be used to watch content on the new platform.
The app aggregates several apps and streaming services as well as being home to its new original content.
Non-Apple devices can also use the app – such as Samsung smart TVs which are 2018 or 2019 models, Amazon Fire TV and Roku.
The good news is that LG TVs, Sony and Vizio will soon also be integrating the Apple TV app. Airplay 2 can be used to set it all up in the meantime if you wish.
The app can also be used in browser mode, by accessing tv.apple.com on Safari, Firefox and Chrome web browsers.
Can I get Apple TV+ for free?
While Apple TV+ is available for $4.99 a month after a free seven day trial, some are able to get the service for free for a year if they purchase a new iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV or iPod Touch.
Furthermore, students who use the Apple Music student plan at $4.99 a month will be able to get the TV+ subscription for free.
You can also set up an account using the Family Sharing feature, as one subscription can support six accounts.
