LG extends three-month Apple TV+ trial to Smart TV owners

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited November 2021
LG on Tuesday announced an upcoming promotion that grants owners of certain Smart TV models three months of Apple TV+ service for free.


Owners of 2016 through 2021 model year 8K and 4K Smart TVs are eligible for a three-month Apple TV+ trial that can be claimed starting Nov. 15, LG said in a press release. The offer is open to new Apple TV+ customers in the U.S. and more than 80 countries.

Users with compatible Smart TV models will find a special section highlighting the Apple TV+ promotion in the LG Content Store, while a banner ad is set to appear on the LG TV home menu.

When Apple TV+ launched in 2019, Apple presented customers who purchased an eligible iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV or iPod touch one full year of service for free. The generous trial period was extended multiple times before being cut down to three months in July. Users can also try out the streaming service for seven days without a hardware purchase. Regular subscription pricing is set at $4.99 a month.

Apple sometimes partners with third parties in a bid to goose Apple TV+ subscriber numbers. In July, for example, Sony extended a six-month trial to existing PlayStation 5 owners.

LG's Apple TV+ promotion runs through Feb. 20, 2022, though the company will stop issuing redemption codes on Feb. 13. The offer is limited to one trial per Smart TV and Apple ID.

    Maybe. The article says “new Apple TV+ customers”, but you never know. Apple is weird about their free trials…sometimes they work multiple times, sometimes they don’t. For example, I just bought some AirPods Max from Best Buy and redeemed the free News+ code that came with it for an extra 6 months. I tried using the Apple Music code that also came with them, and it didn’t work. By the time that News+ trial has ended in April, I will have had it for a full year without paying. Bottom line…you never know till you’ve tried.
