Apple TV+ is an ad-free video-on-demand streaming service that Apple launched late last year in November 2019. Apple TV+ is accessible in about 100 countries including some African countries. The service is fully available in Uganda. And for some reason known to Apple alone, the service is NOT available to Kenya and Nigeria residents yet.
The service can be viewed through Apple’s TV app available on both iOS and Android smartphones. Besides being available on your iPhone, it’s accessible on a few streaming devices like Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices. It’s not on Android TV. On Smart TVs, Apple TV+ is accessible on AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung, LG, and VIZIO smart TVs.

Along with 1 year free Apple TV+ subscription, you can also get 6 months of free Apple Music subscription. Open the Apple Music app, you’ll see a prompt asking you to try it for 6 months free. After your trial is done, you’ll pay USD 2.99/month.
