There are 7 new additions to Apple TV Plus in April:

For those new to Apple TV Plus, a standard subscription costs $6.99 per month and there is also the option to save on the cost over 12 months by signing up for a $69 annual plan. If already subscribed to Apple One, then you also get access to Apple TV Plus at no additional cost.

If you’ve recently purchased an Apple device, it may also be worth checking to see if you are eligible for an extended free trial. Typically, all new Apple device purchases come with three months of free Apple TV Plus.
