With the news that Apple is offering device owners three months of free access to Apple TV Plus, proud Samsung smart TV and Roku device owners have even more reason to be pleased.
A monthly subscription to the iPhone maker’s streaming service costs $4.99 / £4.99 / AU$7.99, but from now until November 28, owners of Samsung Smart TV and Roku devices can sign up for three months of free viewing.
The offer is only valid for Samsung TVs manufactured between 2018 and 2022, while Roku users must have a recent streaming box or stick from the company that is compatible with the service.
To take advantage of the trial, you must be a new customer and sign up by opening the Apple TV app on the home screen of your Samsung TV or Roku.
The offer is the latest salvo in Apple’s battle to compete with established rival services such as Netflix and Disney Plus.
As part of its promotional efforts, Apple announced last week that the first season of one of its most popular shows, See, would be available for free until the end of August 29.
Apple TV Plus, which is now available on most smart TVs and set-top boxes, has slowly but steadily begun to establish itself as a streaming service to be reckoned with, thanks to hit shows such as the feel-good comedy Ted Lasso, the Ben Stiller-directed psychological drama Severance, and live MLB baseball.
The service was also the first to win a Best Picture Academy Award at the Oscars, with the drama CODA taking home the prize earlier this year.
