One of the great things about having an subscription to Apple’s services is that you can share them with your family free of charge.
You can share with up to five people whether you have a subscription to iCloud+, Apple Music, Apple TV+, Apple Fitness+, Apple News+, or Apple Arcade, getting access to eligible content. And as each family member has their own account, each person’s experience stays private and personalised to them.
So, if you’ve got an Apple TV+ subscription and want to share the goodness of Ted Lasso and Silo with your family, here is how to share an Apple TV+ subscription.
What you’ll need:
- An iOS device
- A subscription to Apple TV+
- Family members with iOS accounts
