apple streaming service adult content

Not so fast, Puritans! Early reports that the Apple streaming service Apple TV+ would only feature family-friendly fare might not be so accurate after all. An Apple VP has attempted to set the record straight by confirming that some original shows on the service will, indeed, be geared towards adults. Just how adult will things get?

Apple TV Updates - New Home Screen

Since we’re in the heart of Peak TV right now, there are far too many entertainment options at our disposal. It’s hard to keep up with all the new movies and TV shows being added to Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, Epix and the inevitable McDonald’s streaming service that will probably happen at some point. But Apple and Netflix have a solution that is coming this fall.

First, when the new tvOS software update comes to Apple TV this fall, the revamped Apple TV app will allow users to have picture-in-picture functionality, giving them the ability to stream two different programs at the same time. One will take up the entire television screen while another will sit in the corner and play something else. However, not everything will be available for the Apple TV picture-in-picture mode.

Meanwhile, Netflix is testing a picture-in-picture feature that customers could use on the desktop version of Netflix, which will be perfect for everyone trying to waste time at work but still look like they’re getting something done. Find out more below. Read More »

Prime Video Apple TV

Good news for Apple TV users who long for the warm embrace of Amazon Prime Video: six months after Apple CEO Tim Cook assured users it would happen, Amazon Prime Video is now available on Apple TV.

Apple TV shows

Apple has been slowly easing into the world of original television programming over the past few months, hiring a couple of executives from Sony TV and setting up meetings all over town to hear pitches from content creators. But now we know a bit more about their plans, and it seems as if an early report that claimed they were on the hunt for shows like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad was off the mark. A new report indicates that Apple doesn’t want shows with nudity, violence, or foul language, because they’re looking to appeal to the broadest possible audience.

Apple also explained that if you’ve purchased eligible movies in HD, they’ll automatically be upgraded to 4K HDR for free.
