How to sign up for the Apple TV+ streaming service

Apple TV+ Try it free

Apple TV+ debuted on November 1 and is a video streaming service that gives you original shows, movies, documentaries, kids’ shows, and more. You can give it a try before you buy into the $4.99 per month subscription with a free seven-day trial. So you have nothing to lose by checking it out.

What’s great about the service is that you don’t have to own an Apple device to enjoy it. You can watch shows on many different compatible devices as well as the web. If you’re interested, we’ll show you how to sign up for Apple TV+.

Sign up for Apple TV+ on the web

If you don’t own an Apple device, you can sign up on the Apple TV+ webpage. Just click Start Your Free Trial at the top or scroll down through the available shows and click Try Apple TV+ Free for the one you want.
