Just yesterday news broke about him agreement between Apple and Sony with a promotion that will allow any owner of a PlayStation 5 to get 6 months free on Apple TV + (just in time to enjoy firsts like Foundation or series like Mosquito Coast O Lisey’s story). As we will verify at the end of the process, these 6 months are added to your current subscription, so if you have a PS5 at home, you can do so at any time to activate the promotion.
Activate the 6 months of Apple TV + for free on PS5, step by step
The first step is turn on your PS5 and go to the section “Multimedia content”. There we will go to the Apps repository to find the app “Apple TV” and download it. It will surely appear easily at first glance in the featured section, along with the rest of the platforms of diffusion. Download it, and once in your console, open the app.
We will see a new screen with promotion, which you can activate or delete using the remote control. If you click “Get 6 months free”, these additional months will be added to the date of the next payment of your subscription, if you had it, or from this month.
The next step is to sign in with our Apple ID. If you don’t have an Apple ID, you can create it at this step by pressing the button “Create Apple ID”. If you already have one active, you can choose connection using a mobile device or directly by entering the credentials on the TV.
My recommendation: use the iPhone that your account already has because it will be almost immediate, scan the QR code On the screen, your phone will validate you with Face ID and the Apple ID will be activated automatically and, in turn, the subscription:
Instantly the dashboard will load Apple TV + with subscription activated and linked to our Apple ID. The interface is virtually identical to what can be found on Apple hardware with Apple TVs, and it behaves smoothly and comfortably when navigating through content.
Finally, let’s check from another device if this 6 month subscription is reflected in the section on Subscriptions from our Apple account. In my case, here you can see a screenshot before and after the subscription:
As you can see in the picture, the next payment for my subscription was August 1, 2021, and after activation on PS5 the date was moved 6 months later: February 1, 2022. This change is immediate, you will not have to wait to see it reflected in your information. Enjoy it!
