Sony and Apple partner up to give a little bonus to PlayStation 5 owners. As if anyone who gets their hands on a PS5 weren’t lucky enough, they even get additional perks. Until July 22, 2022, PS5 owners can download and install the Apple TV+ app on their console and enjoy a free Apple TV+ subscription.
- Find the Apple TV app from ‘Search’ or ‘All Apps’ in Media home.
- Download and open the Apple TV app, and follow the on-screen instructions.
- Sign in with your Apple ID, or create one if you don’t have an Apple ID.
- Enjoy six months’ free.
Each PS5 console can redeem this free subscription once. This allows every household with a PS5 console to watch critically-acclaimed shows and films. This includes Apple Original series Ted Lasso, whose third season has just started streaming on the platform.
Apple TV+ lets subscribers watch shows and films ad-free. Subscriptions come with Apple One subscription bundles. Just like content streaming platform rival Netflix, Apple also produces shows under the Apple Originals tag. This is Apple’s way of remaining competitive in a growing software-driven environment. Apple’s growing into their new role as a content provider in the market, and their partnership with Sony is a way for Apple to try to hook new subscribers into the content streaming service.
