Apple is making its Apple Music student plan even more attractive by bundling free Apple TV+ subscription with it. Eligible students can already get Apple Music for $4.99/month instead of the regular price of $9.99/month.
With the addition of free Apple TV+ subscription, students will now save $10 on a monthly basis which translates into yearly savings of $120.
The announcement was made by Hailee Steinfeld who stars in Apple TV+’s show Dickinson in her Instagram story.
There are no other details about this promotion from Apple but it is possible that the company will only offer this scheme to students for a year. After all, the company is already offering free Apple TV+ subscription to all new iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, and Mac owners for a year.
We can also see Apple announce an Apple Music and Apple TV+ bundle for a slightly lower monthly subscription price. In the United States, Apple Music subscription costs $9.99/month while Apple TV+ costs $4.99/month. Instead of paying $15/month, Apple could offer subscribers a bundled package at a slightly lower monthly price tag of $12.99.
It is clear from Apple’s strategy that it is looking to create awareness about Apple TV+ and get people hooked to its various shows. It is not intent on making money from the service at least initially as it probably understands it does not have the content library to do so.
Apple TV+ is set to launch on November 1.
