India, the country where you will pay less for Apple TV +
If you do not have a lot of money to invest in this type of service, it is logical that you look for alternatives that are cheaper. Luckily they exist to be able to make the subscription in another country such as India where the change will be much cheaper. Specifically, according to Apple’s own website, to subscribe to Apple TV + you must pay Rs 99 per month. In exchange, this implies the payment of 1.13 euros.
The main problem that exists is that it is mandatory to subscribe while in this country and not from Spain and also have an Apple ID from India. In order to solve the first problem, you will need to sign up for a good VPN to pretend that you are not in Spain. Right now the NordVPN service is on offer with a 72% discount and 3 months free, so do not hesitate to take advantage of it if you are interested in doing this process.
A little problem
Keep in mind that this should always be used to have access to Apple TV + when you subscribe. Or what is the same, you will not be able to use your own account for this “trick”. You will have an account for the rest of the services and a specific one for AppleTV +
This is a serious nuisance, especially in devices such as the iPhone, since to enter one or another service you have to change accounts. But if you have a television with Android TV, for example, it is much more comfortable since you are simply registered with this account on the TV and with your own account on the other devices.
Steps to follow to register
Once you have established your virtual location in India through the VPN, activating the service and choosing a server in that country, it is time to create an Apple ID for that area. Go to the Apple website and it is likely that the one for that nation will appear directly. If not, just go to this URL: https://www.apple.com/in/.
Now, you have to follow the following steps:
- Click on the basket in the upper right corner and choose ‘Login’.
- Select ‘Don’t have an Apple ID? Create one now. ‘
- Fill in all the personal data, making sure that in the upper part you have the country ‘India’ established.
Once you have the account created, one of the critical points to take into account is the payment system. We recommend introducing a virtual card that is rechargeable. Keep in mind that when Apple charges you, it will be in rupees. The bank will automatically make the conversion when the receipt arrives and the corresponding price in euros will be deducted from your bank account.
From here you will have full access to Apple TV + in India as long as you log in with the Apple ID that you just created and configured. One of the concerns that you may have is the language in which the content can be viewed. By default it is possible that they are played in Hindi, but you can always make changes to listen to it in Spanish.
The Apple TV + experience
Month by month Apple is launching new content to this platform without you having to view any type of advertisement. It is a service that is identical to that of Netflix, HBO or Amazon Prime in which you can find a large amount of both original and third-party content. It is undoubtedly one of the great rivals of the platforms that we have previously discussed and that is not limited to the ecosystem itself, since it can also be viewed on third-party televisions or on a Windows computer. Right now in Spain, in order to have access to all this content, you simply have to pay a subscription of 4.99 euros per month. Although you can also have a free subscription in the first months.
Apple with the launch of the service offered customers who purchased a product a full year of Apple TV + free. This trial period is coming to an end and many customers are considering the idea of having to pay their monthly or annual subscription to continue enjoying the content. Currently in Spain the price of this subscription is 4.99 euros per month, but there are always options to have to pay less for the subscription due to the lower value of money in other countries, as we have commented.
