Wrapping up…

Besides you, five more family members (so total 6) can enjoy this service. It builds a viewing profile for each family member. This ensures that what you see is not reflected as recommendations to other persons or your kids. So, you and your wife may watch an adult or violent themed content like For All Mankind, The Morning Show, or See, and your kids can view shows suitable for them like Helpsters, Snoopy In Space or Ghostwriter.

So this is how you can share your single Apple TV+ with your family and friends. It ensures that you and your family get the full entertainment Apple offers at no additional cost.
