Apple TV Plus is an on-demand streaming service launched by the popular tech company. It brings something unique, including its affordable price, its focus on exclusive and original content, and the deals available to help you save money on your subscription. Keep reading to learn more about Apple TV Plus, its price, and any bundles and deals available.
Apple TV Plus is one of the newest streaming services, as it launched in 2019. It has maintained its popularity since then, especially as its content library grows. Apple TV Plus takes a different approach to streaming services compared to others.
While most of its competitors feature a wide range of popular movies and TV shows, as well as some original content, Apple TV Plus contains mostly original content. In fact, it launched with fewer than a dozen titles, and several years later, it still has fewer than 100 titles to stream altogether.
However, Apple makes up for this small library with an affordable monthly price and plenty of ways to save on your subscription. Some of the most popular original titles you'll find include The Morning Show, Ted Lasso, Greyhound, Dickinson, Defending Jacob, and much more.
Apple TV Plus costs just $5/mo. In fact, one of the things that make Apple TV Plus most attractive, outside of its quality original content, is its affordable monthly price. Unlike some other streaming services, there are very few ways to expand your Apple TV Plus subscription. There are a few add-ons (you can bundle Apple Music, Apple Arcade, Apple Fitness Plus, and other Apple services for one low monthly price), and since all of the content is already ad-free, there's no need for a premium plan to remove in-content ads.
As a result, everyone enjoys the same low monthly cost. On top of the affordable price, Apple TV Plus offers several ways that subscribers can save money. We'll talk more about those below.
Apple TV Plus offers a seven-day free trial where you can test out the streaming service before you pay for your first month. Signing up for the free trial couldn't be easier. You simply open your Apple TV Plus app or visit the website in your browser, and find the button that says "Start Free Trial."
First, you'll log in with your Apple ID and password (or set up an Apple account if you don't already have one). You will have to enter billing information to start your free trial, but you won't be charged as long as you cancel the service before your free trial ends.
Apple TV Plus's free trial isn't the only way to save. While all new subscribers can enjoy a seven-day free trial, Apple shoppers can save even more. When you purchase an Apple device, including an iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, or Mac, you'll get three free months of Apple TV Plus. That's more than enough time to make it through a few of the streaming service's most popular titles and decide if you want to keep paying for your subscription.
Another way to save on your Apple TV Plus subscription is using the Apple One bundle, which bundles up to six of Apple's most popular paid services together into one subscription. Not only does this bundle provide monthly savings, but it also offers a one-month free trial of each subscription, which is better than the one week you'd get by signing up for Apple TV Plus alone.
When you sign up for the Apple One bundle, you'll get access to Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, iCloud Plus, Apple News Plus, and Apple Fitness Plus, all in one subscription. Here's what comes with each of those subscriptions:
Apple Music: More than 90 million songs to stream or download, ad-free.
Apple TV Plus: Access to Apple's library of original TV and movie content.
Apple Arcade: More than 200 games with no ads and no in-app purchases required.
iCloud Plus: Upgrade your Apple storage and access advanced privacy features.
Apple News Plus: Read hundreds of newspapers and magazines in one app.
Apple Fitness Plus: Upgrade your Apple Fitness experience through your Apple Watch.
The Premier subscription includes all six Apple services with 2TB of iCloud Plus storage and goes for just $30/mo. That's $25/mo. in savings over buying all the subscriptions separately. Meanwhile, you can also subscribe to the Family subscription, which includes Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and iCloud Plus with 200GB of storage for $20/mo. -- a total savings of $8/mo.
Finally, the Individual plan at $15/mo. comes with Apple Music, Apple TV Plus, Apple Arcade, and 50GB iCloud Plus storage. This is a total savings of $6/mo.
Are you wondering whether it's worth adding Apple TV Plus to your streaming collection? Apple TV Plus brings something truly unique to the streaming world, affordability and award-worthy originals. And because it has a library that consists of 100 percent Apple-exclusive movies and TV shows, you know there won't be any overlap with your other streaming services. Since it has such a low monthly price, it will fit into most people's budgets, likely without having to get rid of any of your existing streaming services.
Ultimately, because of its unique offerings and low cost, we think Apple TV Plus is worth at least trying out. You can sign up for your free trial today, or take advantage of a three-month free trial if you've recently purchased a qualifying Apple device.
