Apple TV+ has been out since November last year and due to how Apple names its devices, apps and services – Apple’s streaming service it can be little confusing as to what is what and how to watch the new shows.

First of all, what is Apple TV+?

Apple TV+ is a video streaming service from Apple, unlike Netflix who does both produce originals and licenses other content, Apple TV+ only contains Apple original shows. The service debuted with a small selection, The Morning Show, See, For All Mankind and others, since then more TV shows, documentaries and films have been produced.

How much is the subscription?

Apple TV+ is £4.99 a month here in the UK, or $4.99 a month in the US. However, if you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV or Mac – Apple is giving a year free away of the service. If you haven’t purchased a new device recently, then a free seven day trial is offered too.

Do I need an Apple device to watch the shows?

Not at all, that may be the case for other Apple services but with Apple TV+ and Apple Music for that matter, the service can be used on other devices.

Apple TV+ can be accessed via the Apple TV app, which can be found on Apple TV streaming boxes, iPhones, iPads, iPod touches, Macs and the web via as well as on a large variety of smart TVs, Amazon Fire devices and Roku devices.
