Apple has announced that they will be bundling free Apple TV+ for individuals who are on the student plan on Apple Music. The news was announced on Dickinson star Hailee Steinfeld’s Instagram page and begins when the streaming service launches November 1.
Normally, Apple TV+ and Apple Music each cost $4.99 a month, so it’s a really good deal for students. However, it’s not known whether the bundle will support family sharing or not.
Apple TV+ has a promotion that offers free 12 months worth of service when you buy a new iPhone, iPod Touch, Apple, Mac or iPad, which includes the family sharing feature. It’s estimated that there will be around 55 to 60 million devices and a lot of customers will be watching Apple original content during the first year.
In hindsight, the move allows for a higher adoption and awareness rate which gives Apple more time to create more exclusive movies and TV shows.
