Apple TV Plus originals - award-winning content

Unlike other streaming services, Apple TV Plus didn't populate its platform with a large back-catalogue of shows and movies for users to binge-watch as soon as they signed up.

Instead, it invested heavily in major celebrities either in front of or behind the cameras. It took time, but over the years, Apple TV Plus' content has become highly acclaimed, with multiple Emmy awards and nominations for shows like The Morning Show and Ted Lasso.

Though many were sceptical at first, Apple TV Plus has shown that its approach to creating content can produce some incredible TV shows and films.

Here are some of the top TV shows on Apple TV Plus:

  • The Morning Show

  • Ted Lasso

  • The Essex Serpent

  • Severance

  • Mythic Quest

  • Foundation

  • Little America

  • Central Park

  • Dickinson

  • For All Mankind

  • Prehistoric Planet

  • Trying

  • Black Bird

  • Surface

  • Tehran

  • Physical

  • Defending Jacob

  • Loot

How much does Apple TV Plus cost?
