CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Variety reports:

Apple hasn’t revealed how many customers have signed up for Apple TV Plus — but it clearly wants to hold on to them as it continues to bulk up the streaming service’s content lineup. The tech giant is extending the free-access period for Apple TV Plus customers who have signed up through its 12-month free subscription offer through July 2021.

That’s after it had previously pushed that gratis period to February. So if you were among the first to take the one-year-free deal back in November 2019, that’s turned into 21 months free of Apple TV Plus. Customers on the Apple TV Plus monthly plan who are paying $4.99/month will receive an App Store store credit in that amount.
