Multiple streaming services are offering extended trials through the Apple TV app during the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, you can get extended one-month trials of Showtime and other services, as well as completely free access to EPIX.
With the Apple TV app, you can subscribe to just the channels you want, without downloading any apps. You can watch content included with your subscription right inside the Apple TV app — on demand and across all of your devices.
EPIX is unique because it’s not offering an extended free trial right now, but rather completely free access for the next month. That means you can access all EPIX content in the Apple TV app for free, without signing up for anything, until May 2.
In addition to EPIX, however, many other streaming services are offering extended free trials through the Apple TV app… You can get a limited time 1-month free trial to Showtime through Apple TV Channels. Acorn TV is also offer a 1-month trial for new subscribers, as are the Smithsonian Plus Channel and A&E.
MacDailyNews Note: With the Apple TV app, you can quickly and easily subscribe to just the channels you watch — like HBO, Showtime, Starz, and CBS All Access. There are no new apps, accounts, or passwords needed for up to six family members, and you can even watch offline.
The Apple TV app is already on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, and Apple TV — just open the app to start streaming. You’ll also find the Apple TV app on streaming platforms, popular smart TVs, and AirPlay‑enabled TVs. The full list of Apple TV app–supported devices is here.
