Apple streaming service Apple TV+ is set for a worldwide launch in over 100 countries, including Malaysia, on Nov 1.

Users can subscribe to Apple TV+ for a seven-day free trial. After the trial period ends, users will be charged RM19.90 a month and the account can be accessed by up to six people under a Family Sharing group.

Apple also announced that starting today, customers who purchase any new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod Touch or Mac can redeem one year of Apple TV+ subscription for free.

The company added that the limited time offer applies to both new and refurbished models, including devices from the iPhone Upgrade Programme, and is not restricted to any specific sales channel. Only one one-year offer is available per family, regardless of the number of devices purchased.

The redemption period is valid for three months after eligible device activation starting Nov 1. After the free period ends, users will be charged the normal RM19.90 monthly fee. The company stated that the plan is automatically renewed until the user chooses to cancel it.

Note that to subscribe to Apple TV+, devices must be updated to iOS 12.3 or later, tvOS 12.3 or later and macOS Catalina. The service will be available through the Apple TV app on all Apple devices including iPhone, iPad and Mac as well as other platforms including online at tv.apple.com/my.

The company promises that Apple TV+ will include new original shows every month as well as an ad-free viewing experience with 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos. On the Nov 1 debut, customers can expect to view a line-up of shows that include survival drama See with Aquaman star Jason Momoa as the lead, The Morning Show starring Jennifer Aniston, dark comedy Dickinson starring Hailee Steinfeld, documentary The Elephant Queen and a children's series from the makers of Sesame Street called Helpsters.

Other upcoming shows include Servant, a psychological thriller by director M. Night Shyamalan and Truth Be Told, a series about true crime podcasts.

Apple TV+ will also be available on the Apple TV app on selected 2018, 2019 and newer Samsung smart TV models, as well as LG, Roku, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future.
