Apple TV+: All the shows, series, and movies you can watch now

Apple has planted its own flag in the streaming wars with Apple TV+, its in-house streaming service that focuses almost entirely on original programming rather than an extensive library of existing TV shows or movies.

The service launched on November 1, 2019, and has been steadily releasing original content ever since. The COVID pandemic had a big impact on production throughout 2020, but new releases should start to pick up again in the fall.

This resource will list all the Apple TV+ content you can watch today, grouped by TV shows, limited series, and movies. There’s also a ton of new content in the works for Apple’s $4.99-a-month service. If you want to know what’s on the way, check out our list of upcoming Apple TV+ shows and movies.
