Apple Music Student Subscribers Will Get Apple TV+ for Free

Posted on October 30, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Apple, Music + Videos, Apple TV+ with 1 Comment

Apple’s video streaming service Apple TV+ is set to launch this Friday. And ahead of the launch, the company is now announcing a new deal for customers.

As you may remember, Apple TV+ is going to cost $4.99 a month, and buyers of a new iPhone, Mac, iPad, or Apple TV will get a free 1-year subscription, too. For $4.99 a month, you will get access to Apple’s new original content at 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos, with offline downloads and the ability to share your subscription with up to 6 members of the family.

And now, Apple is announcing a new deal. If you are a student and have Apple Music for Students, you will get Apple TV+ for free. Apple Music for Students only costs $4.99 a month, so you will essentially be getting Apple TV+ for free with your Apple Music subscription.

The offer was announced by Hailee Steinfeld on Instagram, who stars in Apple TV+’s upcoming Dickinson show. Apple is yet to reveal official details about the new offer, but it is a really good offer for students. Though as 9to5Mac notes, students might not be able to take advantage of the family sharing feature as Apple Music’s student subscription is only limited to a single person.

    I've been really surprised at how negative the reviews of the first batch of Apple TV+ shows have been. I was expecting that with the amount of money Apple had to throw at these shows they would be hiring best-of-the-best to write/produce these.

    I guess it isn't so easy for even a well-funded tech company to jump into that business.
