Apple is taking a bite out of the streaming business

Shows and movies in Apple TV+’s Catalog.

My affinity for Apple is well known, this being my fourth article about them in two years, and my exclusive use of Apple products, so when it comes to Apple TV+, my standards are set high.

Apple released Apple TV+ on November 1, 2019, with stars like Jennifer Aniston, Jason Momoa and Reese Witherspoon all staring in Apple’s original and exclusive content. Apple continued to release originals, exploding with the success of “Ted Lasso,” receiving 11 Emmys and 40 Emmy nominations. This success was not limited to series, with “CODA” winning best picture at the 2022 Oscars and being the first best picture winner to feature a predominantly deaf cast.

Series like “Ted Lasso” live up to the reviews with amazing writing and acting, and other series like “Echo 3” display the range of Apple TV+’s content with a hard-hitting, gritty action compared to Lasso’s light-hearted comedy.

Their movies are also exceptional, with movies like “Tetris” displaying true entertaining stories without manipulating them past what actually happened, as is common in Hollywood.

The fact that Apple TV+’s catalog is ever expanding and growing with quality original content for $6.99/month is truly incredible, starring some of the biggest names in entertainment, all ad-free. Compared to Netflix’s $6.99/month with ads, Apple TV+ is truly a steal. Many may already have it without knowing since Apple gives a free year to people who buy their products.

With the content Apple has been producing and the affordability of its service, it only makes sense to enjoy Apple TV+. I would highly recommend it to the average streaming service user.
