Apple Original Shows

Apple has been spending money left and right to pick up a slew of original programming in an effort to become another contender in the streaming service industry. The tech company is expected to spend about $1 billion on original content this year with an eye towards creating shows that are geared towards wide family audiences. And after spending all that money, how much are they going to charge for users to watch it? Nothing.

That’s right, a new report reveals that Apple will apparently let users watch their original content for free as long as they own Apple devices. And the reason for that makes sense once you find out exactly how this new original content will be distributed by Apple. Read More »

apple streaming service

The Apple streaming service continues to amass an impressive line-up of talent with eye-catching shows. But don’t expect any of those shows to be too risqué. A new report reveals that Apple is working hard to make their streaming service ultra family friendly and, well, kind of bland.

Five days after the story went viral, Apple has finally issued a response. And you can be certain we’ll read the fine print on this one.

Own Digital Movies

Earlier this week, customers who love buying movies through Apple found out that their digital purchases may not be as permanent and secure as they originally thought. After one iTunes user recently discovered some titles were missing from his movie library, he found out they were no longer available in the iTunes store, and it seemed they were no longer his to watch whenever he wanted. But that’s not entirely true.

If you’re one of the millions who has bought a movie through iTunes, but you end up missing a few of them at some point, don’t worry. You still own digital movies you’ve bought from Apple (mostly), and there’s a way for you to still get access to the vanished movies. Read More »

digital movies

There was once a magical time when physical media reigned supreme. VHS gave way to DVD and DVD gave way to Blu-ray, and everyone was happy to plunk down some hard-earned cash to take their favorite movies home.

Then came the onset of digital, and things changed fast. Now, a majority of casual movie watchers are more than happy to own things digitally.
