Apple want to get this on multiple platforms to encourage people to sign up.
Well we shall see OB but l remain pretty doubtful that it will get added quickly if ever.

That's fair enough, it's what's known as choice.

Apple TV+ will be available on any device that supports the new Apple TV app. The initial list includes Apple devices (such as the iPad, iPhone, Mac, and Apple TV set-top box), select smart TVs (from Sony, Samsung, LG, and Vizio), as well as Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices.

What the article actually says is:

How much does Apple TV+ cost?

It'll cost just $4.99 per month for a family subscription in the US.

To encourage signups, Apple will offer anyone who buys an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV one year of Apple TV+ for free. You'll be able to subscribe to and watch Apple TV+ at tv.apple.com on the web via the Safari, Chrome, or Firefox browser.


So I don't think you will get it free if you already own one of these devices. The way I read it is that if you buy an Apple device, you will be offered a free subscription.
