Apple announced an Apple Music/Apple TV+ bundle specifically made for students.
Attempting to be more affordable for younger subscribers, Hailee Steinfeld, star of Apple TV+’s first potential hit series, “Dickinson,” announced on her Instagram story that Apple Music student subscribers will be able to stream Apple TV+ for free.
The celebrity hosted a series of Instagram Q&A’s to hype up the show, and during the event, Steinfeld announced the bundle deal by saying, “for those of you who are students with an Apple Music student subscription, you can now get Apple TV+ for free.”
The Apple Music student subscription is currently $4.99 per month and includes full access to Apple Music’s catalog of 50 million songs, radio stations and original content. It does not appear that this is a limited-time deal with an expiration date.
In other news, Apple TV+’s debut shows have received mixed reviews from critics ahead of the streaming service’s launch. “The Morning Show,” starring Jennifer Aniston, Reese Whitherspoon and Steve Carell, has been called “dull” and “underwhelming.”
“Dickinson,” on the other hand, is expected to be a hit, with some saying that it will be Apple TV+’s breakout series.
