Apple will be offering Apple TV+ for free to the subscribers of Apple Music Student plan, Hailee Steinfeld, the star of Dickinson, revealed earlier today on Instagram.
After a series of Instagram-hosted Q&A’s meant to stoke excitement for the show among her fans, Steinfeld announced the bundle deal by saying that: “for those of you who are students with an Apple Music student subscription, you can now get Apple TV+ for free.”
9to5Mac has more:
Standard Apple Music subscribers ($9.99 for individuals or $14.99 for families) currently have no such discount opportunity, which feels a little lopsided given those subscriptions are at least twice the price. However, such a promotion may be in development. We have heard reporting that Apple is talking with music labels about ways that it could offer bundle pricing.
The Instagram post doesn’t make it clear if this deal will be permanent or time-limited.
The Apple Music student subscription is currently $4.99 USD per month, providing full access to Apple Music’s catalog of 50 million songs, live local radio stations, curated playlists, and other original content.
Apple TV+ launches November 1. In addition to Steinfeld’s Dickinson, the streaming service is expected to offer several other original productions including See, The Morning Show, and Oprah’s Book Club.
