Apple Making Carpool Karaoke Available for Free in TV App

Apple is making its "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" television show available for free via the TV app, according to a new trailer the company shared on its YouTube channel this week (via Billboard).

Free episodes of the show will be available through the TV app starting on May 11 at 6:00 p.m. Pacific Time, giving those who don't have an Apple Music subscription a chance to watch it.


Right now, "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is limited to Apple Music subscribers who have subscribed to a free trial or who pay the $9.99 per month fee for the service. Starting later today, the series will be available to watch in the TV app on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV even if you don't have an Apple Music subscription.

Apple plans to release new free episodes of "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" each Friday, so the entire series won't be available at once.

"Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is based on the Carpool Karaoke segment made popular by "The Late Late Show With James Corden." The show pairs up different celebrities, musicians, and athletes, putting them in a car together to sing popular songs.

Apple has released 19 episodes of "Carpool Karaoke" thus far, and the show was approved for a second season back in February.
