Prime under investigation for problems with streaming service. Apple TV is just as sketchy. I clicked on 3 months free subscription. Got my credit card information then switched me to a one week trial. Shame on them and no way I could speak to someone. Then I canceled and they blocked me. I had to jump hoops to get my one week back. I am retired and on a fixed income.

Great programming! One specific complaint, however.....sometimes, I need to pause the show either to get a closer look at a note in the character's hand to see what it written on it, or to be able to read a text they have received on their phone, and the pause symbol and back/forward symbols appear in the middle of the screen, frequently blocking the very thing I am trying to see. It would be GREAT if the symbols could be moved to the bottom of corner of the screen and out of the way.

There’s nothing to watch on Apple TV unless you’re a tv junkie that will start watching anything. It’s a waste of money and I received free 3 months after I bought my iPhone but cancelled after about 20 minutes, IT'S THAT BAD.

I have Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime and Apple TV. Apple is the only one that starts buffering or even freezing on me. They have a few good programs, but the selection doesn't seem all that great compared to others.

I have been watching Apple TV. The quality is high. While the shows move a little slow, they are engaging and interesting. You need to be warned, however. This is woke TV to the max. You will see an overrepresentation of alternative sexual orientations and minorities. Even though the numbers in real life are very different, all of the shows I've seen show us what their woke world would look like. On top of that, you shouldn't be too surprised to see that woven into most plots is how good woke people are and how bad conservatives are and how, in the end, most problems are caused by greedy capitalists. It does wear on you. So, it's part entertainment and part social engineering. A bit more social engineering than most other programs I've seen.

Good content but the app and remote are sooo very limp in every sense. There is no back button. I feel like I'm handling a tiny bug or leaf. I don't have huge hands.... The remote is ridiculously tiny. You can't get around well.

Apple TV support is pretty worthless. They can't help you to reset the security questions. The only way to do that (required to rent one of their movies) is to know the answers to the existing questions. If you do not know the answers you are flat out of luck. I had the Apple TV subscription for only about 2 months, I had rented movies from them, now suddenly they want me to answer questions. No idea! I have just canceled my subscription. Not much else I could do after 2 very frustrating hours trying to change or eliminate the questions from my account. Most of the shows and movies on their channel require an additional purchase to rent or own.

I subscribed to Apple TV thinking I would have access to view their programming. What a joke! Everything I tried to access cost more and more money. So I pay a subscription fee just to find out that I can’t watch it. They want me to pay significant sums for 40 year old shows. Not a fan!!!

I have experience installing and using streaming apps. I was not successful in using Apple TV. After trying many times I called support and after 15 minutes on the phone the rep wanted to transfer me to another rep. I declined and decided not to use Apple TV. Very frustrating.

Review of Apple TV browser on iMac. You get free Apple TV for 2 months with imac. It's a browser that gives access to shows and movie. They all cost more money, including older movies. A small collection of free stuff but the vast majority is pay content. So Apple wants me to pay $5/month for a browser that allows me to rent content? It's $4 to rent Captain America. So that's $9 to watch one Marvel movie. For less you can get the Disney channel and watch all Marvel in one month. For this cost you might as well just get a subscription to a channel like Netflix and when you run out of good content cancel and try another. Or rent a movie on Google in your browser. Recent movies are $20 on either. Free on your browser or $5 on Apple TV browser?
