Apple TV+ First Reactions, Here’s What Users Are Saying About the Streaming Service on Twitter
The streaming wars are officially on, with the launch of Apple TV+ this morning. The long-awaited streaming service launched today with nine original titles for viewers to enjoy. Though their front running shows were met with mixed reviews earlier this week, Apple TV+ promises to churn out more content over the coming months. Apple TV+ is also available for free to users on the student plan as well those who purchased a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV.
With so much publicity surrounding Apple TV+ users are already experiencing some technical difficulties. Some users are reportedly seeing error messages such as “Your account is temporarily unavailable” or “You are not qualified for the hardware offer” — even if they bought the iPhone 11, which began shipping Sept. 20, Variety reports.
According to MacRumors.com, users can resolve the problem by visiting tv.apple.com on a desktop browser and logging in using their Apple ID user name and password. After accepting the 12-month subscription offer, users should return to their iPhone, sign out of the Apple TV app (and close it) then relaunch the app and sign in again.
Technical difficulties notwithstanding, Apple TV+ has been the subject of some major buzz. Here is what some consumers are saying about the app on Twitter so far.
I just watched all 3 episodes of “See” and all 3 episodes of “The Morning Show” from #AppleTVPlus and both have me intrigued enough to want to keep watching. This weekend? It’s all about Snoopy. 😉— Lamarr Wilson (@LamarrWilson) November 1, 2019

I started my #AppleTVPlus subscription this morning. Since hubby got a new IPhone there was no charge for the first year. Right now, though, they will let you watch the first three episodes of the currently released shows free.— 👦BYW is 21M🚌. 👶🏻AHW is 2M🎀 (@bowmanlove31) November 1, 2019
Just watched #SnoopyInSpace on @AppleTVPlus and it’s pretty great! Not only have they perfectly captured the Peanuts vibe, they’ve also thrown in a terrific STEM lesson! Well done, @Apple! #kidsmedia #AppleTVPlus— Derek E. Baird 👾 (@derekeb) November 1, 2019
