I tried to sign up for Apple TV+ this morning, only to find that debit cards were not acceptable. My debit card has a MasterCard logo on it, so I don't understand why I was not allowed to use it. Not everybody has a credit card.:mad:

that’s not right as I don’t have a credit card linked and I’m subscribed up.

As suggested, it may be an issue with your card. My form of payment for my iTune Store account is also my debit card. You might want to call your bank.

This morning it did say that a debit card was not acceptable. I guess I was trying too early; I just signed up and the payment method is the PayPal account I use with the iTunes Store and Apple Music.

apple tv+ payment is paid with to your Apple iTunes account.You can use iTunes gift cards for that. Not sure why your debt card is not working.... probably due to your bank.

For those of you who dont know (and live in the US), iTunes credit regularly goes on sale for 15 - 20 percent off. Buy the credit, put it on your account, and then use that credit to subscribe to services like Apple Music, Apple TV, Hulu, Disney+ etc. It's an easy way to save money, and Apple manages your subscriptions for you, so if you only want a month of Hulu, you sign up through Apple and then in your subscriptions you tell Apple to turn the service off after a month.
