Here are all the shows and films available on Apple TV+

When we mention to friends and extended family members that we have Apple TV+, if they don’t ask us “What’s that?,” they ask, “What shows are on Apple TV+?”

There’s more already on Apple TV+ than more people think, even though Apple’s highly-lauded service just launched this past November.

Along with Garrett’s wife Eunice (Nia Long), they train a working class white man, Matt Steiner (Nicholas Hoult), to pose as the rich and privileged face of their burgeoning real estate and banking empire – while Garrett and Morris pose as a janitor and a chauffeur. Their success ultimately draws the attention of the federal government, which threatens everything the four have built.

MacDailyNews Take: Apple TV+ subscribers, what are your favorite series and/or film(s) on the service?

  1. Yes, there are the shows that are Apple TV+ specific, made in association with Apple. Those are free with an Apple TV+ subscription.

    However, my experience so far with Apple TV+ is that while there is a plethora of other shows and movies, 99+% of them cost extra. My subscription gets me Apple co-developed stuff, but not much else. This seems to severely limit what my subscription provides to me without extra cost.

    This, in my opinion, makes it a weak competitor to other, competing services, which offer many shows and movies not explicitly made with or for them for free with their subscription.

    1. Hi Shadowself,

      You are describing your experience with the Apple TV app, not Apple TV+.

      Apple’s naming mess has made this confusing for most people. There’s the Apple TV device, the Apple TV app (which attempts to bring everything together into one app to make searching for content easier), and then Apple TV+ which is a service consisting of Apple Originals content for $4.99/month.

      That content that “costs extra” is not part of Apple TV+. It’s part of Apple’s Apple TV app.

      Confusing enough for you? You’d think one of the world’s largest companies would be able to name things properly so as to not confuse just about everybody, but you’d be wrong.

  2. Some great shows on Apple TV+. But the Apple TV app sucks (on Apple TV device and on iOS). It’s so hard to navigate to the wanted show on Apple TV+. There should be a separate app for that. I don’t care to see all the shows and movies that I don’t have access to. I want an Apple TV+ app that works like Netflix and that does remember correctly where to resume my show!

  3. Other than See, I didn’t find anything i would spend my time watching. And i’m not going to spend money every month to see those. Comparably, I can watch stuff on the CW for free. “The 100”, which is ending soon is just as good as See. And they did have a bunch of other decent shows. Point is, Apple has the weakest offerings of anyone, and they are charging a premium. No thanks.

    1. $5 per month is “charging a premium” for you? Wow. Not to mention Apple TV+ is free for a year with any Apple product purchase. We got it free for a year when we got a new Apple TV unit. Next year will be free also since we need a new iMac then. The next year after that will also be free as it will be time to upgrade one of our iPhones. Yeah, soooo premium 🙂

  4. I just clicked through all the links.

    It all looks wokish to all-out woke. Hard pass.

    Maybe I’ll consider Amazing Stories. If untainted.

    My free1 year expires in December and remains unused.

    1. Mythic Quest is anything but “woke” and it’s hilarious. Really great. I suspect you’re just another Apple troll and you have no interest in giving anything on Apple TV+ a try, whether you’d like it or not.

      1. I’ll login into the free AppleTV+ account that I got with my iPhone 11 Pro Max, for the very first time, to check out Mythic Quest, as per your suggestion.

        Troll? Don’t think so. Loyal Apple customer since 1987.
