Apple will proceed to refund credits to Apple TV Plus subscribers until June. The progress occurs after the company increased the free trial program last month. Apple Tv plus streaming service will continue to get on their accounts until June. The refund is available to customers who had switched to paid subscription status before the extension of the free trial was announced. It is available to both subscribers who chose the annual and monthly packages. Following a second extension of its free trial program earlier this month, 9 to 5 Mac reported.
” ‘WeCrashed’ will follow the greed-filled rise and inevitable fall of WeWork, one of the world’s most valuable startups, and the narcissists whose chaotic love made it all possible,” – Apple said Friday in a statement on its website.
The trials were combined with the purchase of any Apple gadget like (an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV plus) and were initially set to last until November 1st, 2020. This was the second extension; an earlier extension had pushed back the free trial end date to February, providing users who started a free trial between November 2019 and June 2020 to get up to five months of supplementary access for free. The extension of the free trial is likely to help Apple gain more subscribers as the competition in the OTT space continues to heat up. While the likes of Netflix and Prime Video (Amazon) have dominated the segment, more and more new programs such as Disney+, HBO Max, and Peacock have developed.
But before Apple issued the first extension of the free trial, some users had switched to paid subscription status in the meantime, and Apple gave these customers refund credits.
It’s doing the same thing for the second extension. 9 to 5 Mac says affected subscribers are being advised through email that they will take monthly credits of $4.99 (or the local equivalent) to their Apple accounts, which will be automatically applied for each month the subscriber is charged between February and June. The credits can be used toward App Store purchases.
