TV Line is reporting that Apple TV+ is the latest streamer to offer some of its content for free during this time of social distancing and coronavirus-related uncertainty. For a limited time, there’s now an opportunity for United States residents to binge acclaimed anthology Little America; M. Night Shyamalan thriller Servant; astronaut drama For All Mankind; Dickinson, which stars Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld as a teenage Emily Dickinson; pre-school series Helpsters; a re-imagining of ’90s series Ghostwriter; Peanuts-verse entry Snoopy in Space; and wildlife documentary The Elephant Queen at http://apple.co/FreeForEveryone. The offer will begin for global customers on Friday. Each series will be available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, iPod touch, Mac, select Samsung and LG smart TVs, and Amazon Fire TV and Roku devices.
Apple joins a slew of other content providers in making consumer accommodations in the wake of COVID-19, as HBO, Sundance Now, and YouTube have all moved some of their content from behind their respective paywalls, while the likes of Showtime, CBS All Access, and Acorn TV have all extended their free trials.
You can check out trailers for every show Apple TV+ is making available through this latest offer below.
