What is free on Apple TV Plus 2020?
What is free on Apple TV Plus. A new service, unlike anything that’s been done before. – Apple is one of the strongest competitors entering the streaming war space.
On November 1st, the company’s launching Apple TV+, its most extravagant attempt at developing original TV series and movies.

With nine original titles at launch, a content budget north of $5 billion, and multiple seasons orders from Hollywood A-listers, Apple finally means business. Apple is trying to get away from its past image.
Think more Reese Witherspoon is acting as an idealistic journalist and less Gwyneth Paltrowoverviewing potential App Store apps.
Apple doesn’t have Disney’s catalog of movies and TV series or Netflix’s demonstrated string of successful shows.
But Apple isn’t playing the same game as Netflix or Disney. Apple is taking its queues from Amazon. It’s best that they giveTV+ as trying to replicate what Amazon did. – For free!
Apple is going to give one free year of TV+ to anyone who purchases a new or refurbished product. Those people can then give five free subscriptions to family members and friends via Apple’s family sharing plan.
Think of it as Apple Prime Video. But let’s get the but out of the way first. TV+ technically isn’t free. It comes with a $5-month price tag.
That’s only $2 cheaper than Disney+, but unlike Disney, Apple’s hoping to leverage its hardware to give people TV+ for free. Apple has 1.4 billion active devices around the world.
If that trend continues, that means hundreds of millions of people are gonna get TV+ for free. There’s probably a lot of people watching this who are gonna buy an Apple product in the next few months.
Even if it’s just to check out the shows and movies that Apple is hyping up, they’re probably gonna subscribe to TV+. It’s free, so why not? Throughout the year, Apple is gonna continue to add to its catalog with movies and TV shows that keep people hooked.
But TV+ is just one ingredient. Apple declared its first package. Individuals on Apple Music student program will have the ability to get Apple TV+ at no cost Apple is also reportedly working on a bundle that could include its other services, that its regular Music plan, NewsNews, its new gaming platform, Apple Arcade as well as additional iCloud storage.
Like Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+ isn’t designed to be a major revenue driver for the company. It’s not an iPhone, but selling services is a key part of Apple’s feature.
If you forget that you’re actually paying for TV+, then the bundle works. Amazon Prime is the ideal situation. It’s only after you’redone buying toilet paper that an ad for a Fleabag marvelous Mrs. Maisel pops up, reminding you that through Amazon Prime, you have access to these award-winning shows.
Apple might do the same. They’re already kind of doing it. If I open up iTunes, maybe I wanna check out the new Selena Gomez track. I get served an ad that says, “Free on Apple TV.” If I click on it, I also get served with this big reminder that Apple TV+ is coming on November 1st.
You have to imagine that it’sonly gonna be more prominent once the service actually launches. I could be reading an article on Apple News or playing a game on Apple Arcade, and I’ll probably be served an ad for “The Morning Show,” one of Apple’s most anticipated shows.
Figuring out what streaming service looks like is key to a player in the streaming wars. There are content-driven strategies, and there are service-based strategies.
Think Disney+, the first week is free, but for 6.99 a month after that, you’re basically just signing up to stream a big portion of Disney’s library.
There are some new shows and movies, but there’s also a good chance people just wanna be able to stream all eight Star Wars movies before “The Rise of Skywalker” comes out.
Apple is eventually trying to sell people on efficiency. Unlike Disney+ or streaming services like HBO Max, they don’t come with gaming, news, or music subscriptions. Apple, like Amazon, wants to put everything into one place. They wanna sell you on easiness.
The more tighten people are to Apple’s ecosystem, the better it is for Apple. The company just needs to give into people. It’s also better for them. Steven Shure, the former vice president of Amazon Prime, told Recode earlier this year that when Prime first launched, it struggled.
It wasn’t until Video and Music that Amazon Prime really took off. Video, in particular, was a big, transformer. Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon, has long credited Amazon Prime Video as a key player in helping to bring in Amazon Prime subscribers.
Shows like Transparent are winning Emmys. And people wanted to see what all the hype was about. Bezos claims that the more time people spend on a video, the more likely they are to buy things from the Amazon store.
Amazon developed a strategy that Apple’s eventually gonna wanna copy. Create a digital shop for everything, and people are eventually gonna wanna stay.
But even though TV+ is free right now, we are eventually gonna pay. Whether it’s through being hooked on TV+’s offerings or subscribing to Apple’sinevitable bundle, there will be a monthly fee we pay, but it’s an easier sell for Apple to get people hooked on a bundle they can’t live without.
If I’m paying every month for music and NewsNews and gaming and TV, it’s less likely I’m going to leave. Even though Apple’s streaming service isn’t going to replace Netflix, there’s a good chance that one year from now, we’re still going to be watching TV+ and willing to pay for more.
Once you’re in, it’s hard to get out. Thanks for watching, guys. I wanna draw your attention to a real big collaboration happening across YouTube right now.
It’s being led by Mr Beastand it’s called Team Trees. If you go to team trees.organd donate a dollar, the Arbor Day Foundation matches that by planting a tree. The goal is to reach 20 million, and they’re about halfway there.
