Apple Extends Monthly Credit Deposits to Apple TV+ Subscribers Through June

Apple TV+ subscribers have begun receiving emails from Apple letting them know that they'll continue to be credited $4.99 for each month they've been charged for the service from February through June 2021.

The credit will be applied to a subscriber's Apple ID and can be used for games, movies, and other Apple services.

The last time Apple issued credits to ‌Apple TV+‌ subscribers was in November 2020. On that occasion, the credits were deposited monthly through January 2021, so Apple is effectively extending the credits for another five months. As before, expect the amount to vary based on ‌‌Apple TV+‌‌ pricing in other countries.

Apple's email suggests the credits are being given to allow subscribers more time to check out the latest Apple original content, but it initially described the deposits as a thank you to users for subscribing to the service.

Back in October, ‌Apple TV+‌‌ subscribers who have free access to the service through an eligible device purchase beginning in September 2019 had their one-year trial extended until February 2021, and in January, Apple renewed free trials until July.

I think ATV+ is destined to remain a niche service. In typical Apple fashion they’re doing their own thing: some TV shows and documentaries with progressive societal themes. And some movies. Definitely quality over quantity. While I very much do like their content, I’m afraid most people will not be compelled to subscribe and pay.

Everyone saying this means Apple TV is failing are possibly missing the point.

Apple may very well be doing this because large parts of the world are in lockdown and many people are having to stay at home. This could be a way of them helping people cope, by giving them something. Each time they have set a date when it ends, it has always roughly been around when each lockdown has been scheduled to end. This time it takes us into summer when a large portion if not all of the 1st world’s population will be vaccinated.

Already bailed. Tried several shows. Didn’t enjoy one. I think Apple is disappointed in tv+ numbers. So give it for free. Pad the numbers of users.

Members here think they speak for the majority of users. Some here defend Apple at all costs. Lol.

They haven’t got enough content yet. It’s taking time to build up a catalogue. So they’re giving people a free pass as a taster. Give it a couple of years and Apple will be competing with Netflix and Amazon.
They need to buy some content, there is no way they can produce enough quality/decent content.

Also, they should heavily buy indie stuff.
