Apple TV Plus is one of the newer streaming platforms vying for your attention, and with good reason to start watching. It’s packed with big names and some hit shows, from season one of Severance to the lovable Ted Lasso to Reese Witherspoon’s Emmy Award-winning The Morning Show.
Like rivals Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV Plus is filled with exclusive original content. But unlike other services, Apple only streams content it produces itself. This meant that when the service launched in November 2019, the catalog wasn’t huge, but it filled up quickly.
