I have the Apple One bundle which includes AppleTV+, and Apple told me I couldn't use the free AppleTV+ plan because my plan isn't valid. Because I actually use 5 of the 6 services, I don't think it could be worth it to go a la carte. I wish Apple would handle it like Disney+ and just give me a discount on the Apple One plan.

T-Mobile already had the "Get AppleTV+ on us for one year" promotion that I wasn't able to take advantage of.

This is a bummer.

Or TMo just give you a $4.99 credit on your bill? That's what I came hoping for. I have the Apple One premier and use all parts of it.

Wonder if T-Mobile might be looking for alternatives to Netflix. Their Magenta plans offer ”Netflix on Us”, which just gives you a super discount on the service ultimately. With all the negative press they’ve been garnering with password sharing and ad tier, plus if you make any changes to your T-Mobile plan, Netflix will instantly bill you for the month directly. It’s the only line, along with my girlfriend’s protection plan, that goes up on my bill.

Oh nice, this is awesome. Pretty much makes me feel like I have my TV viewing locked down… just pay for Disney since I have a two year old.

Mine errored out: "You have already redeemed the maximum number of these codes per Apple ID" (I'm already a subscriber - well, I've never paid for it, just on a series of free months from various purchases)

We tried ATV+ and found nothing we cared to watch, which is becoming the norm across various platforms.
Yep. The ideal situation is buy a month and watch all the shows you can and cancel it. So jumping from service to service. lol
Better yet, read a book.

A nice added perk for T-Mobile subscribers. Though my wife and I are on the Magenta plan. May have to look into the MAX plan a little more.

Exactly what I was thinking. I haven’t seen anything on if they’re going to still offer Netflix or wean it off
