To put it quite simply, this new service by Apple is an add on to all new and persisting Apple users. This way anyone grabbing a new Apple iPhone, iPod, Apple TV, Mac or iPod touch can make use of this newly started free service. But of course, after a month of free period usage, the recurring price in INR is Rs. 99 a month. This is quite nominal with the sheer amount of tv content you get. What’s even better is that a single Apple TV+ subscription can be shared and viewed up to 6 family members.
As per reports by CNET, this service of Apple TV is disposed in about 100 different countries. Not only this, the programs and content on it is dubbed and made into easily readable subtitles for about 40 different languages.
