Apple Extends Apple TV+ Free Trials Through February 2021

KEY POINTS

  • However, Apple has decided to extend Apple TV+’s free trial period through February next year
  • This can entice more consumers to try out the streaming service

Apple launched Apple TV+ last year alongside the iPhone 11 series. At the time, the Cupertino tech giant said it will offer one free year of Apple TV+ to those who will buy new devices. Those who did buy new iPhones were able to enjoy the company’s TV offerings without having to pay a cent.

The free trial period is almost nearing its end, but Apple told TechCrunch that it is extending the free subscription period by a few more months and will bill subscribers starting February 2021.

Apple extends Apple TV+ free trial to end of February 2021

The one-year free trial of Apple TV+ was set to end for many users on November 1, but Apple may be getting ready to extend all existing trials to February 2021.

Apple TV+ launched on Nov. 1, 2019, which means that those who were there for day one of the free trial would soon start paying. Apple has announced that they will be extending the free trial to the end of February 2021 for all users.

This means that those who started the free trial between November 2019 and January 2020 will receive some extra months — up to three — free. Anyone who signed up for the service prior to Nov. 1, 2020, will receive $4.99 in store credit through February, according to Variety.

Apple is extending some AppleTV+ subs through February 2021 for free

Apple told me today that it will be extending AppleTV+ subscriptions that are set to end November 1, 2020 through January 31, 2021 through their billing date in February of 2021.

The basic situation is that Apple gave away a free year of AppleTV+ to new device purchasers last year and those are all set to end in November. Apple knows everyone is still looking at a tough winter ahead filled with COVID-related restrictions so it’s bumping those subs out to February.

Monthly users whose subscription start date is before November 1st, 2020 also get a deal, with a $4.99 credit (the cost of an AppleTV+ subscription) appearing for November, December and January 2021. You do not have to do anything to receive the credit and users will be getting emails notifying them of these extensions/credits.

And, of course, if it gets to hold the total sub number steady through

NASA needs new funding by February for 2024 moon landing, administrator says

Sept. 30 (UPI) — Congress must approve more funding for NASA’s Artemis moon program in the next few months if a 2024 landing is to occur, agency administrator Jim Bridenstine testified Wednesday.

“If we get to February of 2021 without an appropriation, that’s going to really put the brakes on our ability to achieve a moon landing by as early as 2024,” Bridenstine told members of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation committee in Washington, D.C.

The space agency seeks more than $7 billion for Artemis in the current fiscal year, which begins Thursday, and nearly $28 billion through 2025. The House of Representatives has approved a bill for the new fiscal year that cut billions from NASA’s request.

Bridenstine and the Trump Administration argue that a rapid return to the moon within the five-year timeframe announced in 2019 is the only way to overcome political resistance and inflated budgets

A small international team of researchers has found that phytoplankton resumes growing in Baffin Bay as early as February. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, the group describes how they deployed underwater profilers in Baffin Bay for two years and what they learned from the data they collected.


For many years there has been a consensus among marine biologists: phytoplankton ceases growing during the early winter in the Arctic Ocean when ice forms and does not resume growing until the ice melts in the spring. Then when the ice does finally melt, the phytoplankton are thought to explode with growth. In this new effort, the researchers have found that such
