Apple TV+ is an on-demand streaming service developed by Apple Inc. It includes cable networks like Epix, HBO, Cinemax, and even original exclusive series and movies from Apple.

Like some streaming services, Apple TV+ contains no ads but a slight difference for Apple TV+ is its brand new feature, called the family-sharing plan, that allows up to five family members to share a plan together.

A  seven day free trial is available to all audiences, but after the free trial, viewers have the chance to purchase two different types of deals. One includes a payment of $4.99 per month, and the other is a $50 purchase for an annual subscription.

For both deals and the free-trial, Apple TV+  accesses five free-streaming channels:  Pluto TV, Popcornflix, Sony Crackle, Tubi TV, and Vudu.

Apple TV+ is available in over 100 countries and is free to download in the Apple Store, Smart TV’s,  MacOS, IOS, or is available in
