You no longer need an Apple Music subscription to enjoy Carpool Karaoke.

Apple has made the first season of its original show available for free through the Apple TV app. There are 19 episodes in total, and you can watch them on iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV.

Carpool Karaoke, which features celebrity guests sharing a car with entertaining results, made its debut last August for those with an Apple Music subscription. It received mixed disappointing reviews from fans and critics initially, but was popular enough to earn a second season.

If you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet because you don’t subscribe to Apple Music, the wait is over.

Carpool Karaoke hits Apple TV

The first season of Carpool Karaoke is now available for free inside the Apple TV app. There are 19 episodes to enjoy, featuring the likes of Will Smith, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Seth McFarlane, Ariana Grande, John Cena, Shakira, Linkin Park, and LeBron James.

James Corden, who hosts CBS’ original Carpool Karaoke segment as part of The Late Late Show, also appears in some of Apple’s episodes.

You’ll need a fourth-generation Apple TV or an iPhone or iPad device running iOS 10.2 or later to access the Apple TV app. Carpool Karaoke can currently be found in the “Watch Now” tab within the “What to Watch” highlights, or by using the search function.
