If you want to watch Apple TV+ shows and movies for free, it’s easy. You just need a few things:
A computer or device with an Internet connection
Apple ID (If this is your first time signing into your account)
The following steps will guide you through the process of watching Apple TV+ shows and movies for free on your computer or TV.
Apple TV+ is a new streaming service dedicated to bringing you the best of the most popular movies and TV shows. To watch Apple TV+ movies and TV shows for free, you’ll need a compatible Apple device—iPhone or iPad—with an active subscription to either Apple Music or its free trial. If you’re on your home network, you should also install the Apple TV+ app before signing up.
Visit the iTunes Store.
To watch Apple TV+ shows and movies for free, you’ll need to visit the iTunes Store. If it’s not already open in your dock, click its icon on your Apple TV.
From there, search for whatever show or movie you want to watch. You can also browse through categories such as “TV” or “Movies.” Once you find what you’re looking for, click it and click on details to learn more information about this title. You’ll see an option where users can buy individual episodes or seasons at a discounted rate—if that’s what works best for them!
Search for the program or movie you want to watch.
To find a show or movie you want to watch, search for it in the search bar at the top of your screen. You can also use these suggestions to help narrow down your results:
- Search for shows that are available to stream on Apple TV+
- Search for movies based on genres (such as “comedy”) and actors/actresses who appear in them
Click Buy or Rent on the program.
You can rent or buy movies, TV shows, and more on Apple TV+!
- Buy: Movies and TV shows are available for purchase through the iTunes Store (which is also available on your computer). The prices vary depending on the movie or show you’re buying. Some titles may be free with a certain membership level at Apple.
- Rent: Rented movies will automatically download to your device when they become available so that you don’t have to wait until they are downloaded onto your device before watching them later.
Click your account name at the top of the screen.
Once you’re signed in, click your account name at the top of the screen. If you don’t see your account name (which may be called something like “My Apple ID” or “Apple ID”), click View Account and enter your email address and password.
Click Sign In at the top right of the screen.
To sign in to the app, click Sign In at the top right of the screen. If you haven’t already logged into your account, you’ll be prompted to do so after clicking Log In. Once logged in, you can select whether or not to share your personal information (like credit card numbers) with Apple TV+ and its partners when they offer special offers and deals via in-app notifications.
If you want to sign out of Apple TV+, click Sign Out on the top right of any page on this website or within any app that’s using Apple TV+.
If a Member card is available, click Log In.
If you have an Apple ID, enter it. If you don’t have one, create one by clicking on Create a New Apple ID at the top of any page in the App Store or iTunes Store app.
If your account already has an Apple ID and password, sign into your account using it and then click Log In.
Click Continue in the confirmation message box that appears.
Once you’ve clicked Continue, Apple TV+ will open up in Safari. The confirmation message box that appears on the screen will tell you that your Apple ID password is required to sign in. Next, enter your iCloud username and password on the left side of the screen (again, this is different than what we had entered earlier).
Once your account has been authenticated and authorized, click Continue again until all information has been entered correctly into each field—you should see “Thank you” or something similar appear at bottom of the page when everything has been completed successfully!
Choose your Apple device on the My Devices page.
Once you’ve selected your device, it’s time to select the movies and TV shows that you want to watch.
- If you’re using an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, tap Use iCloud on the My Devices page.
- If you’re using a Mac computer with Safari installed on it (and have access to Apple Music), click Use iCloud in the upper right-hand corner of your browser window.
Enter your Apple ID password on the left side of the screen.
- Enter your Apple ID password on the left side of the screen.
- Click Sign In and then click Continue
- You will be directed to a page where you can select which content services you have access to, including Netflix (if applicable), Hulu, and more!
Enter iCloud to sign in to your account.
To sign in to your account, select the View Account link at the top of any iTunes Store page.
Once you’ve signed in, click on My Apple ID at the top of your account page and enter your password. If necessary, click on Sign In Again if you forget it later or need to reset it somehow (it happens!).
The Apple TV+ service is free for all users, but you can only watch the free versions of the shows on Apple TV. If you want to watch full episodes or movies from a series then you’ll need to sign up with an iTunes account. Apple TV+ is a great way to enjoy great TV shows, movies, and more. Watch more than 500 titles on the same day they premiere, including originals like upcoming films and episodes of your favorite shows. Plus, you’ll get exclusive behind-the-scenes content with interviews and clips from creators.
