apple tv+ activation without apple id !!

Highlighted
2: Seeker

Hi there, 

Long time VF user, but new to the board.

I hope i can get a straight answer, as internet has proven to be little help

I recently upgraded BB and received free apple tv+ 4k for 12 months.

I have it all set up but there is nothing to say it is active and films etc are saying "try apple tv+ free"

I do not have any other apple devices, so how do i go about activating the 12 months free offer ?

Everywhere i look it mention iphones/ipads/icloud etc, of which i have none

This is really frustrating

Thanks in advance

You will also need an iTunes account. I don't know why but then Apple is a mystery to me.

Thanks, i suppose i will have to grin and bear it then and set up an apple id. I only took it as it was free, and would never normally entertain the idea of having anything apple related. so if i get an apple id, is that all i need to activate the year's free tv ?

I felt exactly the same.

Once you input the Apple account the included 1 year Apple TV+ will show in the account, although it didn't appear instantly. It's also not the full Apple service. This may help explain what is included.

To anyone who is not steeped in the Apple universe it is really complicated, and I find the stupid remote a complete pain.

thanks for the help. yo be honest i can't stand apple products and never understood all the hype, and so far i find the remote is awful and the interface not much better, but i'll give it a chance. i just hope that when new router is connected that the free year appears on my reluctantly forced apple a/c. i have also noticed it is interfering with my sky box, which keeps switching off when the apple box turns off. i have pulled the power from it and will look at it tomorrow
