The 10-episode series reportedly cost $150 million to make, with sizeable salaries for stars Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell

Here's what you need to know to start streaming The Morning Show on Apple TV Plus -- including how to time your free trial to watch the show without paying a dime.

Where can I watch The Morning Show?

Apple TV Plus programming, including The Morning Show, is available exclusively via the Apple TV app. The app can be found on on pretty much all Apple devices, including  iPhones iPads , Mac computers and the Apple TV  streaming box.

The Apple TV app is also available on select non-Apple TV devices, including:

  • Roku streamers and smart TVs
  • Amazon Fire TV streamers and (coming soon) smart TVs
  • Samsung smart TVs

Subscribers will also be able to watch Apple TV Plus on the web at tv.apple.com.

Sorry, Android owners -- the Apple TV app isn't available on any mobile devices except iPhones or iPads. That means Apple TV Plus subscribers with non-Apple phones will need to stream to their mobiles via the web, rather than in an app. 

Apple says the TV app will become available "in the future" on smart  TVs  from SonyLG and Vizio. It hasn't mentioned availability on other TV platforms, such as Chromecast.

How much does Apple TV Plus cost?

Apple TV Plus will cost $4.99 (£4.99, AU$7.99) a month and offers a seven-day free trial. 

Can I watch The Morning Show without Apple TV, for free?

The first three episodes of The Morning Show are available to stream starting Nov. 1, with the remaining seven releasing weekly after that. If you time your seven-day trial to start after all of the episodes are available at once, you'll be able to binge-watch the show for free. 

Another option: Buyers of certain Apple products can get a year of Apple TV Plus for free.

Are there reviews or a trailer?

Why, yes. Here's our review of The Morning Show, and you can feast your eyes on the official trailer below or watch it on YouTube.
