Have they detailed what the * means?

hi kaynin :) yes sure they do. free means free for students as long as keep the student apple music plan... see below all requirements... very generous for students I would suggest ! 

 

 

*Limited-time offer, offer may end at any time. Free Apple TV+ access for students ends when you no longer qualify or do not renew your Apple Music student plan. Offer good for verified university students only and does not extend to a Family Sharing group.

The all-new Apple TV app is available on iOS 12.3 or later, Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD with tvOS 12.3 or later, Apple TV (3rd generation) with Apple TV Software Update 7.3 or later, macOS Catalina or later, and on eligible smart TVs and streaming devices.

Both seem to have high production values.

Yup, 1000 times better than most stuff made by Netflix.

Interestingly the “Masters of the air” that we were all hoping for to follow band and brothers and the pacific ... has finally found a home at apple+ with them backing Spielberg to come through ... 

 

was disappointing hbo never followed through on this, but looks like Spielberg believes apple+ is a more rightful place

watching “the pacific” at the moment as happens on blu-ray ... not sure how far gone masters of the air was with hbo but imagine it will be some years in making and release ... can’t come soon enough for me :D

I recently watched Band of Brothers and The Pacific (and Generation Kill) and am keen on that Masters of the Air. The Pacific was just fantastic

 

I was also really waiting on that Hue 1968 series Michael Mann was doing - but that was FX so thanks to di$ney, probably kaput now.

 

I HATE it is appletv + though as it probalby means we'll never get an AV enthusiast level physical release of it

hmm you mean never on uhd ? for best bandwidth audio video ?  that would be a real shame and pity .....

 

ps it also does mean you have to keep your renewal up, ie cant just let it lapse, as unlike the disc cant just grab it any time to watch ! unfortunate part about streaming ! grrr !

I expect they would release it on itunes also, so you could buy it and then watch with just an apple account, not apple+ steaming account. Eg just in your library.  If I was going to see it on apple, and that was the only way I'd do that over a subscription.

 

I watch a LOT of movies and TV series. And 98% of it is on disc. I only watch streaming under duress... Other than that I do buy some TV series on itunes - ones I watch that don't get a blu ray release.

Reports are that AppleTV+ shows have the highest bitrate on any streaming service so far, 30mbs - the picture and Dolby Atmos do look and sound good respectively. 

 

Wife an I have enjoyed See and Morning Show -   so if they get enough content and it stays this quality could be a good addition

 

We got 12 months free as I just upgraded my phone, and apple hard ware purchase gets 12 months free.

 

Disney + launches Nov 19 - that will be interesting 

 

Remembering that you can turn all these streaming services on and off on a monthly basis at no penalty so having several options is not as bad as it looks, will probably turn off Amazon and Stan and try Apple + and Disney + for a while.

 

I am getting less and less happy with the quality of Netflix originals so will see what happens in that space

Binge watched the first three episodes of The Morning Wars. Really nicely made but the characters are so inconsistent, especially Witherspoon, Aniston and Carrell (very unrealistic, I think Carrell is not really a dramatic actor). Billy Crudup and that Duplass guy pretty much own whatever scene they are in though so they were parts I really liked.

I'm really missing not being able to binge watch The Morning Show. Episode 4 won't be available until November 8 (probably November 9 here) and episode 5 won't be available until November 15.

Same here,  but only just realised last week :)  .    I'll try it out for the year then decide if I keep this or Amazon Prime.     Netflix is staying because my extended family depends on it....haha

 

I'm up to date with "Morning Wars".   good stuff.

 

A few episodes in to "See".       I wasn't keen on the premise at all but gave it a shot anyway and have been pleasantly surprised.  Worth a look for sure.

Band of Brothers and the Pacific are the BDs I bought to test out my shiny new TrueHD system many years ago, so I'm very keen for this.        No surround system these days unfortunately :(

I find the who AppleTV,  Apple TV+ thing very confusing.        It seems to be a combination of paid rental/purchase (which is just the old itunes  offerings I guess)  combined with this new netflix type subscription service (Apple TV+).

 

First time I fired it up I thought it was fantastic with loads of content,  but then realised AppleTV+ itself has bugger all.     No surpise they're giving it away because surely no-one is willing to pay for it yet??          

 

I might not be navigating correctly,  but ATV+  seems to have only these so far:

 - morning wars

- for all mankind

 - dickinson

 - See

 - the elephant queen

 - helpsters

 - ghost writer

 - snoopy in space

Yes, that's all I can find at the moment as well but they all started on the 1st of November.

Morning wars is great.

See is a bit out there but a lot of thought has gone into making it.

Yes. I have SBS on demand app on my Apple TV and I can access content via their own app or via Apple TV+. Part of the idea of Apple TV+ is to be a 1 stop shop for all of your streaming subscriptions (although I believe Netflix refused)
