With almost no licensed TV or film programming and a tiny number of originals, Apple TV+ is one of the oldest streaming services available. Apple is clearly opting for “quality over quantity,” with its funds scattered across genres and aimed at convincing its subscribers (many of whom were lured in by a package that came with one of the company’s tech items) that it is a serious rival. Here are some of the best movies on Apple TV so that you can enjoy the streaming service in the best possible way!
