    It's pretty clear they want new content to start streaming to get you hooked before they institute the subscriber charge.

    I actually just watched my first Apple TV+ program last week since I figured I should use it once before losing it. I was actually surprised that it wasn’t that bad. This week I started watching The Morning Show.

    I for one am grateful. Servant S2 just dropped today. Losing Alice on the 22nd. Tom Holland movie Cherry coming in April.

    Why would it be a surprise (even though you still phrased it negatively)? There is good stuff to watch everywhere.

    I just signed up for my one year trial a few days ago. It doesn't look like there's enough content to keep me watching for long. What was Apple thinking? The streaming TV market is incredibly competitive, and starting a new streaming service without a large back catalog seems like a really excellent way to throw a bunch of money away.

    Also, I'm really annoyed with autoplay. And the web interface is kind of poor. (It can't seem to keep track of what episodes I've watched, I can't find a list of the shows I've started watching, and I can't seem to get HD video resolution.) I thought Apple didn't do things unless it could do them better than everyone else, but it seems like in this case, they've actually done it worse than everyone else!

    At least the price (free) is right! As of now, I can't imagine I'll be willing to pay for it in a year.

    Maybe actually watch a few of the shows before you decide they wasted their money?

    That is the only show I stuck with and watched the entire season. I'll subscribe again at some point this year. Especially if I can get it discounted like I had last year. Plus more content has been added since I last watched anything on it. So there might be something new I can watch. Otherwise I am looking forward to season 2 of the Morning Show.

    I didn’t say anything about the quality of the content. The problem is the quantity.

    I actually just signed up. Ted Lasso got me hooked, probably the best show I’ve watched in a year. The Long Way Up got me to pay the $4.99 for at least one month, and I enjoyed The Morning Show enough to binge it. We’ll see if it keeps me past a month though.

    I think Covid messed up their content plans but I did like the content I watched, such as The Morning Show, For All Mankind, See, Mythic Quest, and some of the episodes of Amazing Stories. I also liked the movie Greyhound. I'm looking forward to Foundation a series based on the book series by Isaac Asimov. And Masters Of The Air which is going to be a WWII miniseries in the same vein as Band of Brothers and The Pacific developed by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.

    I'm not currently subscribing but just watched the first 2 episodes of Ted Lasso that they offer for free. I loved them, even though the trailer for the show didn't do anything for me. I saw that S2 of Servant has started, so once a few more episodes of that are posted, I'll subscribe for one month and watch both it and Lasso.

    In the past when subscribed, I've really enjoyed Servant (by far my favorite of their series), The Morning Show, See (i seem to be one of the few that enjoyed that), and Tehran. Defending Jacob was decent. Wasn't able to get into the other series I tried. Movie-wise, I really enjoyed both Greyhound and Hala.

    We got a free sub via a iPhone purchase. So far have watched Ted Lasso (liked it) and Morning Show (loved it).

    Looking forward to more Morning Show!

    I really don’t want or need yet more streaming subscriptions... especially when I already have a few that are really limited in content I enjoy. (Looking at you CBS AA)

    But I’ve enjoyed For All Mankind and Ted Lasso.

    Luckily, new phone gets us the content free for a bit. After that, there’s not that much content that intrigues me yet.
