With the Apple TV app, you can subscribe to just the channels you want, without downloading any apps. You can watch content included with your subscription right inside the Apple TV app — on demand and across all of your devices.

Chance Miller for 9to5Mac:

EPIX is unique because it’s not offering an extended free trial right now, but rather completely free access for the next month. That means you can access all EPIX content in the Apple TV app for free, without signing up for anything, until May 2.

In addition to EPIX, however, many other streaming services are offering extended free trials through the Apple TV app… You can get a limited time 1-month free trial to Showtime through Apple TV Channels. Acorn TV is also offer a 1-month trial for new subscribers, as are the Smithsonian Plus Channel and A&E.

MacDailyNews Note: With the Apple TV app, you can quickly and easily subscribe to just the channels you watch — like HBO, Showtime, Starz, and CBS All Access. There are no new apps, accounts, or passwords needed for up to six family members, and you can even watch offline.

        1. You’ll have to excuse Dd, he’s drunk again.

          Non Apple Content:

          Corporate welfare, cronyism, unregulated oligarchy pulling the strings to the damage of middle and lower classes … that’s what Dd’s party now stands for. I didn’t leave the party, the party left me. The GOP today would never accept a reformer like Eisenhower, Roosevelt, or Lincoln. Too progressive! How dare Lincoln give economic opportunity to ….our property!!! Over a century later and still the GOP denies equal opportunity to minorities. The last 4 GOP administrations have been best characterized by different flavors of Nixon evil (and actual Nixon cabinet members stinking up the swamp!) but now they sweeten the dish with a combination of reality tv star smoke and a thick layer of unregulated oligarch- funded media spin with no morals or fact-checking. Not that the bar is high on either side.

          Point is, why would a sober person go onto a Mac blog to attack Bernie in April 2020???? Clearly the right wing is flailing worse than ever since the orange clown show can’t decide who to throw under the but this time. St Petersburg and Moscow bloggers, shoot at all targets!!!!

          Komrade Dd is not coherent enough to focus on the actions of the administration today, Dd the Troll just dropped in to show that he has no idea who his real political opponents are. Hint: when they lash out about competence, personality, mental faculties, or vague economic theory, they’re covering up for an action that Don did EXACTLY as bad or worse than whoever they attack. When you prove that with undeniable facts, they pivot and issue a whatabout. Every bad thing GOP candidates said about Don in 2015 has proved accurate. The GOP would be wise to choose a new horse to run, because Big Orange is lame.

          Since the extreme righties ignore successful mixed economies when they trot out their generalizations that all things socialist are bad unless we profit … let’s spend the next few months to explore what Americans get for their tax dollars. The USA could learn much from Scandinavian countries. Their mixed economic models are responsive to the people. Rather than letting banks run wild, forcing college kids to start their working lives with insane loans debts, or letting medical bankruptcy be the defining characteristic of how medicine is doled out here, they implement efficient administrative oversight so that everyone has an equal chance at good education, good health, and personal time for recreation. All this has been repeatedly proven. Better results at lower costs to taxpayers.

          What does Denmark not have that the USA does? About 2000 corporate lobbyists per senator, and unelected billionaires with direct phone lines to the people who are supposed to regulate fairly for the benefit of all people.

          What does the GOP offer?
          Nixon : war, race riots, and treason
          Ford: pardoned the treasonous bastard
          Reagan: poorly designed tax cuts ignited boom and bust cycles, (2 recessions), Iran Contra, military budgets through the roof
          Bush: Desert Storm, recession
          Bush II: Afghanistan, Iraq, torture, Homeland Security BS, runaway surveillance, TSA bureaucracy, unfunded Medicare Part D (socialism), and the biggest recession in 2 generations
          ConDon: Lies, Trickledown, more lies, imaginary Mexican funded Great Wall, imaginary healthcare act, more lies, stimulus up the wazoo to overcook stock markets (nice buybacks Fortune 500!) , biggest peacetime budget deficit in history, more lies, more golfing, and now the what could be the biggest recession in 80 years.

          Ain’t that a GREAT record? We should all be proud that each one of those feckless idiots talked tuff. Now everyone respects Americans, ‘cuz Don is tuff.

          Is this the America you want? Chinese built Apple gadgets while vets from the last GOP war are strung out on painkillers and sleeping under a bridge? You like these Trickle down tax dollar giveaways to campaign donors? A president who lies to you, as if his tariffs aren’t paid by US consumers? Unpaid unfinished Oil wars and now isolationism and xenophobia? No one willing to check Presidential Unitary Powers? The GOP needs to stop running off the map to the right, and if they don’t, then even Crazy Bernie would do better for you and your families. Seriously, no candidate from any party can be worse than the one you in office now.

          Today the swamp is fuller than ever. Insiders at the top privatize success, socialize losses. Government debt spending has long been out of control by both parties — but which party generally steers the money to domestic projects and which party EVERY CHANCE IT GOT started foreign wars? Who dramatically increased the size of senseless uncontrollable spy agencies? Who left as CEO of an oil services company and used OBL as an excuse to carve up Iraq into US corporate oil production zones at the cost of 5000 US lives, 40000 casualties, and well over 5 trillion dollars? What party uses science and technology to support more efficient and effective government on the home front? When economic disaster strikes, which party fights for benefits for the small guys and which immediately proposed more corporate handouts?

          This administration didn’t cut budgets, the budgets ballooned even before the market bubble blew up in their greedy faces. GOP bureaucrats steered more money to their pet projects. Political appointee Acting department heads dine well but the US taxpayers get nothing. Who benefits from the current swamp? Not you or me. Con man did nothing for the middle class. from day 1. It was all an act. The only major legislation signed in 4 years were bailouts- one in 2017 when stimulus wasn’t needed, and now an avalanche of debt for your kids.

          Choose more wisely next time. Empty out both sides of the corporate aisle and put in pragmatic public servants who aren’t there to grandstand and stuff their pockets. Ensure multiple parties are in place to check each other. Hire a leader who actually gives a damn about the average citizen and I guarantee there will be fewer parties on private golf courses.

          And finally…. ignore Dd. He simply doesn’t have any good pro-Don propaganda to spread anymore, now that the true incompetence of the administration is laid bare for all to see.

            1. you proved Paul correct.

              baseless accusations of dementia. socialism boogieman fearmongering. juvenile attacks in irrelevant politicians. not one word in defense of republican policies, no possible way to actually defend the most corrupt president since tricky dick.

              both parties are corrupt as hell but the republicans have caused more lasting damage to the republic they supposedly love, while they constantly antagonize the 70% who doesn’t worship con don.
