What Is Apple TV+?

Apple TV+ offers a streaming service that requires a subscription. You can watch exclusive content made by Apple such as Ted Lasso and The Morning Show there.

Here’s where it gets confusing. Maybe you’re thinking, “Oh, so it’s like Disney+ or Netflix?” Well, kind of. You also need to be familiar with Apple TV and the Apple TV app in order to fully grasp what Apple TV+ is. Yes, they are all different things.

Let me know what Apple TV Is .

Apple TV is the Tiny Black box you can buy that connects into your TV. The device allows you to watch web-based content, much like Roku or Amazon Fire Stick. With Apple TV, you can access Apple TV+ (through the app) as well as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.

So what is the Apple TV app?

With the Apple TV app, you can access a wide selection of channels, shows, and movies that are free or available for purchase. The Apple logo has the word “TV” next to it. Apple devices (including Apple TV) and other streaming devices like Roku or Amazon Fire Stick support it. You can still watch shows with the Apple TV app even if you don’t have Apple TV.

How does all of this pertain to Apple TV+?

Apple TV+ media is available on the Apple TV app. The Apple TV app is required to watch Apple TV+, but you don’t need an Apple TV to watch it. Does that make sense?

Imagine you want to start viewing Ted Lasso. You’ve listen rave reviews, and you’re in the mood for a show that seamlessly blends heart and humor. 

Here’s how to get it: 

You can access the Apple TV app either from an Apple TV (or any other Apple device) or from a non-Apple streaming device. Using the Apple logo and the “TV” with a plus sign, click on Apple TV+ at the top of the screen. You can then sign up for a subscription or start watching if you already have one.

After a free seven-day trial, Apple TV+ costs $4.99 a month. If you purchase an Apple device, you can also get three months of Apple TV+ for free. As an alternative, you can subscribe to Apple One, which bundles Apple TV+ with other Apple services such as Apple Music, iCloud+, and Apple Fitness+ for $14.99. This is only cost-effective if you already use those services.

This concludes the lesson on Apple product terminology. It shouldn’t be this confusing, but it is. And Ted Lasso is worth it.
