Where can you watch Apple TV+?
The short answer: Anywhere you can access Apple’s new TV app, which aggregates over 150 video apps and streaming services, including HBO, Starz, and Showtime, and will now house all of the Apple TV+ content as well. The app is available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac (as long as you’re running the latest software). But it’s also available on non-Apple devices, including Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and 2018 and 2019 Samsung smart TVs. Vizio, Sony, and LG TVs will soon be integrating the Apple TV app as well, but for now, you can use AirPlay 2 to connect to these models if you want to watch Apple TV+. Or you can skip the whole device and app thing altogether and opt to use the TV app in Safari, Firefox, and Chrome web browsers at tv.apple.com.
It comes out on Friday, November 1, and you can subscribe for $4.99 per month after a free seven-day trial. Or you can get Apple TV+ for free for an entire year if you buy a new iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Mac, or Apple TV. And if you’re a student who uses the Apple Music $4.99/month student plan, you’ll also get a free Apple TV+ subscription thrown in. But if you’re looking to mooch off a generous friend, you’re in luck — one Apple TV+ subscription can support six accounts via Family Sharing.
