Yeah, you might just see the option for 7 day free trial in the iPhone Apple TV app. I went to the web page and signed in to activate the 1 year offer then signed-out of the Apple TV app on the phone, exited the app then opened and signed-in again on the phone.
All working as expected now.

This also worked for me, thanks!

I know it’s only 7 days, but does the 1 year start today automatically? Or can we do 7 days free then start the year? I’m assuming we activate the 1 year whenever we want?

I bought a new Apple TV 4k in Sept. Anyone know how you get the year ATV+?

Worked for me, just signing in on the web page. Year free with ATV 4k purchase was there automatically!! Working great now!!

Nothing works. I bought a MacBook Pro on September 21 and I don't get a year free. When I log in on the web address they still say I can get a 7 day trial only.

Got it now through activation via web site, as suggested.

The amount of audio languages available is just incredible.

It won’t take long to Apple to reach a solid customer base worldwide.

exactly- all they need is 1-2 water cooler type shows and also a single Emmy nomination and they will be in business - hell - I subscribe to CBS all Access for 1 show (ST Discovery) - at $5 bucks a month I am certain you will find at least 1 Apple show to watch.

I was able to activate the free year on my iMac. It works now on my Pro Max and old non-4K Apple TV box; bur not on my new Samsung QLED with Apple TV+. I need to use it for 4K.

Never mind. Apparently, I had never signed onto the ATV+. Working great now.

Would be interesting to know if you bought a new iPad (I did) but not at the apple store, but @ BestBuy
Logging in doesn't give me any free year and for what is worth it, so far, not crying about that..
I found that I'm out of "luck" because it was August..;)

Okay so I inadvertently signed myself up for the one week trial with the option to renew at a cost. I just called Apple tech support and the guy couldn’t help resolve it. He tried to get a hold of someone on the iTunes team but they were closed so he’s arranged a call back for tomorrow. I hope they can help me resolve it tomorrow.
