Apple TV+: Watch Apple Original Shows and Movies on Apple's Streaming Service

Apple TV+ Launch and Platform Availability

Apple TV+ is a streaming service that offers Apple's original shows and movies that can be streamed on a variety of platforms. The service launched on November 1, 2019, and is available exclusively through the Apple TV app. You can watch on Apple devices, such as Apple TV, iPhone, or iPad, as well as on other platforms like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Sony PlayStation, Xbox, and even the web at

How to Watch Free Apple TV+ Shows

The TV app is the exclusive destination for Apple TV+, but the TV app blends together purchasable TV shows and movies from the iTunes Store, and other streaming services such as Amazon Prime and Disney+. The Watch Now screen does not really distinguish between content that you own and can watch, and Apple's general recommendations. The easiest way to get started with Apple TV+ is to open the Apple TV app on your device and tap on the Originals tab. This tab takes you to the Apple TV+ channel page, which shows you all of the Apple TV+ shows and movies available to watch, separated into categories like comedy, drama, and family fun.

Apple TV+ Content

Apple aims for premium quality across its drama, comedy, and documentary TV shows and movies so everything should reach a reasonable level of quality and hopefully be worth your time. In terms of personal recommendations, I suggest starting with Ted Lasso, For All Mankind, Severance, Trying, and the movie Finch.
