AppleTV+ is the latest streaming service to come online, officially available today fro $4.99/month. If you've recently purchased a qualifying Apple device, (Mac, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Apple TV), you automatically get a one year free trial of the brand new streaming service. If not, don't fret. The fist two episodes of every show will be available to everyone, without the need to sign up for a free trial. There's only one catch--you must use the Apple TV app to do so.

While the subscription info is important, what's even more important is the content that will be available to watch through AppleTV+.
