Apple TV+ is jumping on the free TV shows-train and providing people with free content — including originals like Dickinson — to watch right now.
Like HBO, Apple TV+ has decided to stream some free TV shows to help people keep themselves occupied while stuck indoors. According to Deadline, these free programs will not require a subscription of any kind and will be available across the globe.
The article states that you can access the free content from apple.co/FreeForEveryone in the Apple TV app. We don’t yet know how long the series will remain available. Apple has made it clear this will be a “limited run.”
If I had to hazard a guess, I would say the free content will remain that way until at least the end of the month.
Among the free TV shows and Apple Originals now available include:
An anthology series about immigrants in America. Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon serve as executive producers along with Alan Yang and Lee Eisenberg.
Servant is the latest project from M. Night Shyamalan. It’s a psychological thriller that revolves around a couple tormented by a recent tragedy. Their pain opens the door for something strange to enter their home.
Dickinson is a modern comedic retelling of Emily Dickinson’s life. It’s hilarious and heartfelt. Hailee Steinfeld shines in the leading role as the show explores her sexuality and the limitations of society during the era she grew up. Dickinson was nominated for a GLAAD Award.
Ghostwriter is a re-imagining of the 1992 Sesame Workshops series. The stories are grouped into various episodic arcs based around classic and modern literature. The series has received several awards from Parents’ Choice and Common Sense Media since its debut.
