Epix free streaming ends on Apple TV, replaced by Moonbug Kids

Free access to Epix through Apple TV Channels has expired, but users of the Apple TV app will be able to stream Moonbug Kids through the month of May.

Epix granted free access to its service through Apple TV Channels until Friday, May 2, a date that has since passed. Now, Apple is making the Moonbug Kids channel free to stream, without a subscription, until June 2 on the Apple TV app.

In addition to Moonbug Kids, a number of other premium streaming services are offering extended free trials through the Apple TV app, including Smithsonian Channel Plus, PBS Living and Showtime.

The Apple TV app is available on iOS, iPadOS and tvOS, as well as on a variety of third-party smart TVs and set-top boxes.

As people entered coronavirus quarantines in April, Apple also made select titles from its Apple TV+ streaming service available free to anyone with access to the Apple TV app.

AppleInsider has curated a list of free, at-home activities for those still under lockdown, ranging from educational classes to exercise apps and games.
