After launching Apple TV+ in November 2019, Apple has consistently given a year-long free trial of its streaming video service — and sometimes more — to anyone who has purchased a new compatible device. Now, that’s set to change. The company has silently updated the Apple TV+ terms to reduce the trial to three months when you buy a new Apple gadget. Here’s what the full text says: Eligible devices activated July 1, 2021 or later will qualify for offers of 3 months free Apple TV+. Eligible devices activated on June 30, 2021 or earlier will qualify for offers of 12 months free Apple TV+. $4.99/month after free…This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Apple

Indian streaming platform Zee5 is set to enter the US market later this month on June 22. It’s launching a subscription-only service, and aims to attract a large share of 5.4 million South Asians living in the country. The firm is pricing the service at $49.99 per year as an introductory offer, and aims to change it to $84 at an unspecified time. The launch price is close to what some other services such as Apple TV+ ($4.99 per month) charge. But if you and your family are fans of south asian content in various languages, it’s probably worth it.…This story continues at The Next Web

HBO Max has updated its Apple TV app as it attempts to fix the myriad issues that have been plaguing the software since last week. The update fixes significant problems with basic features like fast-forwarding and rewinding, which had been introduced after the software switched away from using the native tvOS video player. The software update brings the native player back.
“We just released an update to our Apple TV app, restoring the native tvOS video playback experience you know and love, with more improvements to come,” HBO Max said in a tweet. “Ensuring HBO Max viewers have a quality experience is our top priority and we missed the mark here.”

If you’ve attempted to stream something on HBO Max from an Apple TV sometime during the last several days, you may have noticed that its player controls are unusable. It’s not just you.
Ongoing issues seem to be related to an app update that supposedly addressed “a few bugs lurking around” on June 5th. Since that update released, users have reported that basic playback functionality — such as fast-forwarding, rewinding, and pausing — is borked completely when you try to use the service on an Apple TV box.
How an update this riddled with bugs rolled out to consumers remains unclear. Unfortunately, it’s also unclear when exactly they’re going to be fixed.
There’s legitimately no way to pause, rewind or fast forward on the HBO Max app no...
Apple is extending support for spatial audio to macOS and tvOS. The feature will work with the company’s high-end AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, using the devices’ built-in accelerometers and gyroscopes to create a 3D audio effect that tracks the listener’s head movements.
Apple initially announced spatial audio for the AirPods Pro last year and impressed us with the feature’s immersive quality. At this year’s WWDC, the company extended support for spatial audio to Apple Music and FaceTime calls.
According to a press release from Apple, spatial audio for macOS will only work with the AirPods Pro and Max on Macs with the company’s latest M1 chip and the macOS Monterey operating system. During this week’s WWDC presentation, Apple said...
Proceed with caution if you’re going to start rumours about Mariah Carey. The music superstar has responded to reports that she permanently cut ties with Jay-Z’s management company, Roc Nation, in the wake of an “explosive” meeting with the rap entrepreneur that left their decades-long relationship in tatters. An unnamed source told The Sun last week that Carey had “sensationally quit” the label, which she signed with back in 2017, over a “blazing row” with Jay-Z.The two artists reportedly clashed over the direction of her career, as Carey plans to launch a new “heavily R&B-influenced album” and a world tour in the next year. But on Monday, Carey brushed off the gossip with a distinctly Mariah retort on social media to set the record straight. “The only ‘explosive’ situation I’d ever ‘get into’ with Hov is a creative tangent, such as our #1 song ‘Heartbreaker’!!” she wrote alongside a clip from the iconic music video. “To the people who make up these lies I say ‘Poof! —Vamoose, sonofa*****’!” View this post on InstagramA post shared by Mariah Carey (@mariahcarey)The Sun report claimed Carey was set to “formally depart in the next few weeks” after the meeting.“It is a shame because they had done some great work in the last few years,” the source was quoted in The Sun’s story. “But this meeting couldn’t have gone much worse. Mariah has been talking to other managers and thinks she has found someone who she feels has full belief in her as she takes her next steps. She isn’t letting this stand in her way.”After joining forces on the chart-topping 1999 smash single, Carey and Jay-Z have remained in each other’s orbit, collaborating on various tracks together, including “Things That U Do” and a “Shake It Off” remix, throughout the years.The two made their partnership official in 2017 when Carey signed with Roc Nation for management following a particularly volatile period for the pop icon that culminated in her disastrous 2016 New Year’s Eve performance. The partnership seemingly has been a fruitful one for Carey. The singer released 2018’s Caution, her best-reviewed studio album in years, and most recently the compilation album The Rarities, which celebrated the 30th anniversary of her self-titled debut record, all while working with Roc Nation.She also published a best-selling memoir The Meaning of Mariah Carey and continued her reign as the holiday queen thanks to the omnipresence of All I Want for Christmas Is You and her Apple TV+ project Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.However, as some fans noted, Carey no longer appears on Roc Nation’s website as one of the artists the company represents.Despite the change, all seems good between the longtime collaborators, as Carey reportedly followed her former Roc Nation manager Melissa Ruderman to Range Media Partners, which currently manages the singer. “This story is completely made up,” an unnamed source told The New York Post. “The relationship with Roc Nation ended amicably and Mariah and Jay-Z are on great terms.”Whew, heartbreak avoided.READ MORE:Mariah Carey Attempted ‘The Rachel’ And Jennifer Aniston Has ThoughtsThis Video Of Mariah Carey Getting Her First Covid-19 Vaccine Is, Of Course, Fabulously ExtraThis Video Of Mariah Carey Unboxing Margaret Thatcher-Themed Goodies Is As Wild As It Sounds
Streaming services, the kind we use from Apple TV, Roku, smart TVs, mobile devices, or other systems are beginning to look a lot alike in terms of the content that they offer—no matter if you’re paying for them or not.Case in point, during the pandemic I wanted to binge-watch a specific show. The cost was $30 for an all-season pass for one service. I paid for it and enjoyed the episodic series over a few weeks.

Of course, this series was offered for free a few months later on a free streaming service owned by one of the major networks. I was out $30 for a show I eventually could have watched for nothing. I did enjoy watching the series a few months prior, but was it worth $30?To read this article in full, please click here
