apple tv+ free

Apple TV+ launched in November 2019 to little fanfare, overshadowed by the glitzy rollout of Disney+. But in contrast to another new streaming platform, Apple TV+ has a fair few original titles that are worth a watch. Sadly, they’ve been overlooked by many viewers, many of whom aren’t even aware that Apple TV+ is fully operational (partly through the fault of Apple’s lackluster marketing). But now that everyone is stuck inside and looking for new shows and movies to stream, Apple is stepping up its outreach by offering its originals for free to non-subscribers, for a limited time.

For a limited time, customers across the world can start watching a collection of Apple TV+ Originals for free. Seven Apple Originals, including the acclaimed alternate history series For All Mankindthe M. Night Shymalan thriller series Servant, and Kumail Nanjiani’s inspiring Little America, will be available to watch on the Apple TV app, to customers in over 100 countries and regions.

However, the free titles are only available on the Apple TV app. Those who have the app — available on devices such as the iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, and Amazon Fire TV and Roku — can head to apple.co/FreeForEveryone to access the below series and films for free in the Apple TV app. The press release doesn’t specify for how long these titles will be available for free, but it will likely be the length of the seven-day free trial that Apple TV currently offers.

Here are the Apple TV+ Originals that will be free to stream starting today.
