Can I share Apple TV+ with family?

Answered by Cody Janus

With Apple’s Family Sharing feature, you can easily share Apple TV+ with your family members. This means that up to five other family members can enjoy access to Apple TV+ content using their own Apple IDs.

To set up Family Sharing for Apple TV+, you’ll first need to make sure that you and your family members have Apple IDs. If anyone doesn’t have one yet, they can easily create an Apple ID for free. Once everyone has an Apple ID, you can proceed with setting up Family Sharing.

To enable Family Sharing, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your Apple device.
2. Tap on your name at the top of the screen to access your Apple ID settings.
3. Scroll down and select “Set Up Family Sharing.”
4. Tap on “Get Started” and follow the on-screen instructions to set up Family Sharing. You’ll need to choose what features and services you want to share with your family members, including Apple TV+.

Once Family Sharing is set up, your family members will receive an invitation to join your family group. They can accept the invitation and then they’ll have access to the shared services, including Apple TV+. Each family member will be able to watch Apple TV+ content on their own devices using their own Apple ID.

It’s important to note that Family Sharing only provides access to Apple TV+ content. If you want to share other Apple services like Apple Music, Apple Arcade, or Apple Fitness+, you’ll need to enable sharing for those services as well during the Family Sharing setup process.

In addition to sharing Apple TV+ content, Family Sharing also allows you to share iTunes, Apple Books, and App Store purchases. This means that any movies, music, books, or apps that one family member purchases can be enjoyed by everyone in the family group.

Another handy feature of Family Sharing is the ability to locate each other’s missing devices. If a family member’s iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Watch goes missing, you can use the Find My app to help locate it. This can be especially useful for parents who want to keep tabs on their kids’ devices or for helping a forgetful family member find their misplaced device.

Family Sharing is a fantastic way to share Apple TV+ and other Apple services with your family. It promotes a sense of togetherness and allows everyone to enjoy the great content and features that Apple has to offer. So go ahead and set up Family Sharing today to start enjoying Apple TV+ with your loved ones!
