    Ok so I have a family groupe setup. We're sharing an iCloud Drive and purchases, etc... It's been up and running for close to a year.

    I subscribed today today to News+. The prompt did day that up to six persons could share my subscription.

    Also, Apple's own site clearly states that "If you're a member of a Family Sharing family group, everyone in your family group automatically has access to Apple News+ after you subscribe."

    https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT209513

    But no. It's not working.

    Whenever a family member accesses the News+ section in their apps, they are being prompted to start a subscription of their own.

    I tried :

    - Rebooting their devices (multiple times)
    - Reinstalling the News app
    - Signing out and back in of iCloud

    Still no luck.

    And what's funnier? It works fine for me on my iPhone and iPad but on my Mac, it's like I never subcribed to the News+ service. When I go to the News+ section in the Mac App, I am being prompted to created a subscription. But if I go into my account through iTunes, I clearly see the News+ sub in there.

    I seem to be the only one on the planet with these problems as I can't find anything on the net.

    Anyone here have an idea?
