If you’re in the market for a new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, or Mac, and you actually pick one up, you’ll get a nice Apple TV+ bonus with it.

During today’s “by innovation only” event, Apple confirmed that Apple TV+ will launch with a handful of shows available right out of the gate on November 1. When it does go live, the service will cost $4.99 per month. That is unless you buy a brand new Apple-branded device that you can watch Apple TV+ on.

If you do that, you’ll get yourself a year’s worth of the streaming service at no additional cost.

For any customer who buys a new iPhone, new iPad, new Apple TV, new iPod touch, or a new Mac, you will get a year’s worth of Apple TV+ along with it. That’s a savings of over $100.

To get it started, you’ll have to wait until November 1. Once that day rolls around and Apple TV+ goes live, customers who are eligible for the deal will be able to activate their one year’s subscription for free on a supported device running the “latest software”. Customers have three months after they activate their new device to start the year’s free service deal. Or if you bought and activated your new device before November 1, you have three months from that date.

Once the year’s worth of the subscription runs up, customers will get automatically charged $4.99 per month after that, unless they cancel beforehand. The deal also includes buying refurbished devices, too.

Here’s Apple’s fine print:

  • Customers who purchase any new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac or iPod touch starting September 10 can enjoy one year of Apple TV+ for free. Beginning November 1, customers can initiate the one-year free offer in the Apple TV app on the device running the latest software. Customers have three months after device activation to claim the offer, or if the device was purchased and activated before the launch of Apple TV+, they will have three months starting November 1. The subscription will automatically renew at $4.99 per month after one year. Customers can cancel at any time in Settings at least one day before each renewal date. Customers who cancel during the offer period will forfeit the remainder of their offer. This limited time offer applies to both new and refurbished models, including devices from the iPhone Upgrade Program, is not restricted to any specific sales channel (e.g., Apple Store, resellers) and will be available in all countries where Apple TV+ will launch. Up to six family members can share one Apple TV+ subscription and watch using their own Apple ID and password. Only one one-year offer is available per family, regardless of the number of devices purchased.

So are you looking forward to the launch of Apple TV+? Are you going to take advantage of this deal?
