Apple TV Plus is a unique beast in the VOD streaming jungle. Built almost exclusively on original shows like The Morning Show, Bad Sisters, and Severance with only a handful of licensed titles compared to Netflix’s hundreds. Then it has a slim content library, but it’s only $6.99 a month. And that’s not the only way it differs from many of the best streaming services – there’s also a generous free trial of Apple TV Plus.
You heard right – what is already an extremely affordable streaming service also allows new subscribers to freely use the platform for 7 days (or 30 days in some cases). That means free access to critically acclaimed Golden Globe-nominated movies and TV shows like Ted Lasso, all titles promising a growing roster of top talent. This makes it one of the best streaming services out there.
For a full guide on how to get a free trial of Apple TV Plus, read on for the option to get a trial period of up to a full year.
