Yes, you read that correctly. Today, Apple has confirmed that it will bundle Apple TV + with its Apple Music student plan, which currently costs $ 4.99 a month. The deal will be available to new subscribers for a “limited time,” the company said, as well as students who signed up for the music plan long before the Apple TV + announcement. Access is terminated as soon as the user loses his or her student status (ie when he graduates or breaks off) or when he terminates his subscription. The offer was unveiled yesterday by Hailee Steinfeld (Pitch Perfect 2, Spider-Man: In the Spiderverse), the star of upcoming exclusive Apple TV + Dickinson on Instagram.
Spotify and Hulu have a student package at similar prices. Apple’s deal is more coherent – and could point the way to some sort of “Mega Bundle” with Apple Arcade – but Hulu has a broader, albeit ad-supported, library of shows. Which subscription is cheaper? We’ll let you be the judge. However, we would not be surprised if many students simply chose both – $ 10 a month is cheaper than a standard Netflix sub.
