Apple TV Plus On PS5 – Who Can Claim It?
Before getting started, it’s important to know what conditions Sony has put on its offer for PS5 players. Fortunately, most people will be able to redeem the trial without too many hassles. Sony has revealed that the offer is valid for people who are already subscribed to the streaming service, as long as it isn’t under the Apple One subscription. If you are already subscribed to Apple TV Plus, then the 6 months of free trial will be added on top of that subscription.
The list of participating countries is pretty large, and it’s nice to see India on the list. The offer can only be claimed from a PS5 console, and will apply to new and existing Apple IDs alike.
How to Claim Free Apple TV Plus Trial on PS5
The first thing you need to do, after downloading the app, is check for any updates. If your PS5 is set to auto-update apps, then there may not be any need to do it manually. Nevertheless, the offer went live long after it was announced by Sony on social media, with a small update of around 69 MB that enabled it to appear on the home screen.
Opening the Apple TV app after the latest updates have been installed will show a splash screen to claim the free trial. From here, if you were already logged into the app with your Apple ID, just click on the “Enjoy 6 Months Free” option. If you aren’t logged in or have an Apple ID account, you can create one directly on the PS5 from within the app.
Apple TV Plus costs Rs. 99/month or Rs. 999/year when bought separately. The free offer to claim six months of subscription on PS5 is valid till July 22, 2022.
