Apple Music Student Subscribers Will Get Apple TV+ at No Additional Cost
The race to lock down subscribers is officially on. After Disney struck a deal with Verizon offering their 4G LTE and 5G unlimited wireless customers Disney+ free for a year, AT&T also announced HBO Max will be available to their 10 million HBO subscribers at no extra cost. Now, Apple has once again upped the ante by announcing that they will be giving away Apple TV+ to Apple Music subscribers on the student plan—which is also $4.99—at no additional charge, as first reported by 9to5Mac.
Hailee Steinfeld, who stars in the Apple TV+ original, Dickinson, made the announcement through her Instagram stories. Though further details of the limited time offer have not been revealed, the deal is a steal for students as they get both Apple TV+ and Apple Music for $5 instead of $10.
Though the company doesn’t have a deal in place for their standard subscribers as of yet, reports came out earlier this month stating that the tech giant has approached some music execs and is looking into ways to bundle the upcoming service with Apple Music.
Apple previously announced that the Apple TV+, which launches on Nov. 1, will be available for free to Apple customers who purchase a new iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple TV.
