It's an easy decision for anyone who's just bought one of the following Apple products:
Get Apple TV+ for a year when you purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or Apple TV.
I'm really looking forward to it, especially this series featuring Jason Momoa, that's already getting rave reviews.
As I've dabbled with Apple music it looks like I can only get it free for a week and the Servant doesn't come out until the end of November so have ditched it.
Am not buying an Apple device just to get it for free.
I've just seen the first three episodes of See, which were all available to view on day one, so I'm guessing that's their strategy for each new series that is launched. I'm fortunate that I have a year-long free trial, but I've already seen enough to know I'd be happy to pay for it.
It's early days, but if they keep adding quality content, I think it's a fiver well spent.
I had considered it.. then I saw the price of Apple TV.. I love the ecosystem but not that much!
I've just bought one because my old DVD recorder had finally given up the ghost, so I'm a late convert to the idea of streaming content
But as was mentioned in the OP, there are other options for accessing that content, and that list is growing, particularly where smart TVs are concerned. It's just a question of whether you think it's worth a fiver for a monthly subscription. It's worth noting, that they have other channels that also require a monthly subscription, so they're really looking to get a foothold in that market.
It'll be interesting to see how they fare alongside the likes of Amazon, and Netflix, but they seem have to got off to a good start so far.
