PS5 owners just unlocked hundreds of movies and shows to watch for FREE | Gaming | Entertainment
A new partnership between Apple and Sony is making it possible for PS5 console owners to unlock the Apple TV service for free in 2021. The free subscription to the popular streaming platform will last for six months, providing telly watchers plenty of time to check out everything on their viewing list.
The new deal has been launched today, meaning you can boot up your PlayStation 5 console right now and install the Apple TV+ App as soon as you want.
To get started, you will need to download the App on your next-gen console, and it should be noted that this deal is only available through a PS5.
This means you have to redeem it through your console before using the service through other devices.
From what has been shared so far, This new Apple TV offer is available to new or existing customers, even those who already have a free trial active.
The new exclusive offer has been put together to celebrate the launch of Ted Lasso Season 2, and it also includes future shows.
While Ted Lasso will be the main draw in July, Jason Momoa with Dave Bautista and Alfre Woodard will be starring in the highly anticipated sci-fi drama Foundation in September.
While the Apple TV+ deal is active, you won’t be charged, but you will need to share details so that if the plan renews after this period, it will cost £4.99/month after the extended trial period until cancelled.
PS5 console owners interested in signing up will need to have a PlayStation Network account and An Apple ID.
How to redeem the Apple TV offer on PlayStation 5:
- Find the Apple TV app from your PS5 console’s search bar, or find it under “All apps” in Media home.
- Download and open the Apple TV app and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Sign in with your Apple ID or create an Apple ID if you don’t already have one.
- Enjoy your six free months of Apple TV+.
You can watch Apple TV+ shows and movies on the Apple TV app and tv.apple.com. It should be noted that Apple TV app is already on Apple devices but if you’ve removed it, you can download it again from the App Store.
In addition to PS5 and PS4 consoles, you can also watch Apple TV+ on many smart TVs and streaming devices, if they support the Apple TV app.
