Applehas confirmed it will extend some Apple TV+ subscriptions on a free one-year trial through February.
When Apple TV+ began last fall, the company bundled free one-year subscription with the purchase of an Apple product. This immediately boosted the number of people who could watch the streaming service.
The first of those trial subscriptions were previously going to expire at the start of November. What this means is that people on the one-year trial who had not cancelled were going to be charged $4.99 per month for the streaming service.
According to apple, subscribers whose trials commenced last November, December, or January will automatically be extended through February.
This means that someone who bought an iPhone on November 1 and activated Apple TV+ on the same day will have access to the service through February 1, when billing starts.
iPhone user who enrolled on the 25th of January, for example, will have access to Apple TV+ and won’t be billed until February 25.
The good news is the extension program is automatic and users don’t have to ask for it.
