Apple TV+ is a streaming service that allows you to access a wide range of TV shows, movies, and other content from various providers.
Since its launch, Apple has consistently launched some of the best shows on streaming services. Some favourites of mine include:
- For All Mankind
- The Morning Show
- Slow Horses
They have also developed a growing list of original films, many of which are big-budget with A-list stars, including The Banker, Greyhound, Emancipation, Spirited and many more.
It is well worth subscribing to the service to gain access to its original content. However, as good as the original content may be, it is still relatively limited compared to long-established services such as Netflix. Personally, I’d subscribe for a while, watch what you want, then cancel until some new content is released.
