Apple and Sony have been running a promotion where PlayStation 5 owners could get Apple TV+ for six months as a free trial and hat offer has now been extended to those with a PlayStation 4, albeit for a shorter time.
You will need to redeem the offer between today, 10th March 2022, and 22nd July 2022, and you will need an account on the PSN and an Apple ID to sign up. Here are the exact steps:
- Find the Apple TV app from your PS4 console’s TV and Video section.
- 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 extended trial of Apple TV+.
There’s a bunch of terms and conditions most notably that you cannot use the offer if you are already a subscriber to Apple TV+. You will need to register on your PS4 but after that you are free to watch Apple TV+ on any supported device. Once the free trial has ended you it will automatically renew for £4.99/month until cancelled.
Full details including a list of participating countries (which includes the UK) can be found here.
If you own a PS5 you can find details of the Apple TV+ offer here.
Apple TV+ is nowhere near as big as Netflix or Amazon Prime Video but does have some good shows. Ted Lasso has been winning awards left right and centre and is a very sweet comedy. Gamers may also like to check out Mythic Quest, a workplace comedy set at a game developer which is co produced by Ubisoft and stars Horizon Forbidden West’s Aloy, aka Ashly Burch.
My personal recommendation would be Foundation, a massive epic sci fi series with plenty of twists and turns adapted from Isaac Asimov’s sprawling sci-fi books.
