Apple TV Plus free trial: is one available, how long is it, and how to sign up?

Apple TV Plus is a unique beast in the VOD streaming jungle. Built almost exclusively on original programming like The Morning Show, Bad Sisters, and Severance, with only a handful of licensed titles compared to Netflix’s hundreds. Subsequently, it has a slender content library, but it only costs $6.99 a month. And that’s not the only way it differs to many of the top streaming services – there’s also a generous Apple TV Plus free trial available.

You heard right – what is already a hugely affordable streaming service also allows new subscribers free rein of the platform for 7 days (or 3 months in some instances). This means complimentary access to critically acclaimed Golden Globe-nominated movies and TV shows like Ted Lasso, with all titles promising a burgeoning line-up of A-list talent. This makes it one of the best streaming services out there.

For a full guide on how to get an Apple TV Plus free trial, keep on reading with the option to get a trial period of up to an entire year.

Apple TV Plus free trial: how long and how do I get it?

Anyone new to Apple TV Plus can make the most of a 7-day free trial (opens in new tab) before being charged an Apple TV Plus cost of $6.99 a month (or $69.99 if you opt for the annual plan). To sign-up you’ll need to:

  2. OR access the website (opens in new tab) via your web browser
