Apple TV: Explore all the available movies
Besides being a pioneer in many areas of technology, Apple's focus has always been the user experience. With this in mind, the company created the iTunes Store in 2003, and soon expanded its offering to buy and rent movies, videos, TV series, and books.
In 2019, iTunes was divided into different apps for music, podcasts, books, and videos. Thus, the app for watching movies and series was renamed Apple TV, not to be confused with Apple TV 4K, the company's multimedia player, nor with the Apple TV+ (or Apple TV Plus) subscription platform.
How does the Apple TV app works?
To access the full catalog of online movies, you need to download the Apple TV app on your device. See which ones you can access the app on:
- Apple TV 4K Box;
- iPhone, iPad and Mac;
- PC Desktop;
- Playstation and Xbox;
- Fire TV;
- Smart TVs.
There are a lot of possibilities to access your favorite movies and enjoy with your family.
After downloading the app you will have access to several streaming platforms such as Disney+, Prime Video, HBO Max, Mubi and more. In addition, you can also enjoy your favorite movies on the Noggin, Starz and other channels.
Within the experience offered by the application, you can buy or rent thousands of movies, as well as have access to original content from Apple. All this within a single account, without the need to create several separate accounts to watch the movies you want.
Movies purchased or rented on the platform often include extras, such as interviews with directors and cast, behind-the-scenes footage, additional scenes and more. Some feature films with interesting extras are 'La La Land’ and 'A Star is Born'.
How much does Apple TV cost?
One of the advantages of Apple TV is that the platform does not make monthly charges.
You pay to buy or rent the movies you want to watch, paying only for what you consume. The prices start at $2.99 and go up to $14.99 for most of the new releases. In addition, the streaming service always carries out many promotions and discounts.
Payments are made via credit card or PayPal account synchronized with your Apple ID.
Another important thing is that a movie rented from the platform is available to start watching within 30 days. After the first play, the user can watch and review the production for 48 hours.
Purchased movies, on the other hand, will be added to your library on the platform and will be yours forever.
In addition, Apple's Video On Demand platform carries many movies that are not available on competitors like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. It is certainly the right place for movie buffs looking for trends and quality.
What to watch on Apple TV?
On Apple TV you can watch several Apple original titles, for those who subscribe Apple TV+, rent or buy titles of various genres, or browse the channels and choose the one you like the most.
Those who enjoy watching a period drama might be interested in 'The Banker', starring Anthony Mackie and Samuel L. Jackson. This was the second original title produced by Apple, and shows a true story of the quest for equality in the 1950s.
In addition, you can also buy or rent the amazing 'The Danish Girl,' an Oscar-winning film for Best Supporting Actress (Alicia Vikander).
Apple TV 4K: complete home theater experience
Another distinctive quality of the Apple TV is that it offers the ability to watch movies with the closest picture and sound quality possible in a movie theater.
Apple TV 4K provides 4K HDR definition and Dolby Atmos sound, far superior to the HD or Full HD quality that other platforms offer.
Thus, it is possible to watch contemporary movies like 'Mad Max: Fury Road', 'Ad Astra' and '1917' with an experience very close to that of movie theaters.
Also, for those who love the classics, watching movies like '2001: A Space Odyssey', 'Alien’ and 'Blade Runner' will be a completely different experience.
To ensure that you watch the titles and get the most out of this sensation, you must have hardware available that is capable of playing 4K content and sync your iTunes account.
Some 4K-compatible devices include the Apple TV 4K itself, as well as Roku Premiere, Google Chromecast Ultra or Retina Display-equipped iMac, and Smart TVs with UHD (Ultra High Definition) or 4K.
Nevertheless, if you have a good internet connection, the Full HD experience is superior to the equivalent of other platforms, including Netflix.
A great option for bad internet days is to download the movie. With pre-downloading, the quality will be impeccable and there will be no problems watching movies online.
