How to watch the free Apple TV + shows
The TV app is the exclusive target for Apple TV +, but the TV app is confusing because it links together TV shows and movies that you can buy or rent from the iTunes Store, and content from other apps like Amazon Prime and BBC integrate iPlayer and Apple TV channels.
The Watch Now screen doesn’t really differentiate between what you own and can see and only Apple’s general recommendations. Hopefully the user interface of the TV app will soon be revised with better functions and easier navigation.
Currently, the easiest way to get started with Apple TV + is to open the TV app, go to the Watch Now tab, and scroll down until you find the circular Apple TV + channel icon. You may have to scroll down a lot and the position of this icon on the page changes regularly.
However, once you find it, tap on it and you’ll be taken to the Apple TV + channel page. Here you can see all the Apple TV + shows and films that you can watch, divided into categories such as comedy, drama or family fun.
Note that tv.apple.com is very reduced compared to the native TV app on devices and only shows original Apple content. Both the website and the Mac TV app lack important features such as skipping intro or automatic suggestions for the next episode when you end an episode.
Which Apple TV + shows have been extended for season two?
The first Apple TV + shows were released on November 1st. As Apple tries to quickly expand its content library, many of these shows have been extended for season two before they even premiered.
So far, Apple has officially renewed Central Park, Dickinson, for everyone, Home Before Dark, Little America, Mythic Quest, See, Servant, The Morning Show, Truth Be Told and Trying.
It is less certain when we can see the new episodes. The corona virus pandemic has disrupted TV production worldwide and all projects are currently unable to film. To give a few concrete examples: The Morning Show was 60% finished filming season 2 when they had to stop production, Servant was filming episode 4 of 10 of its second season, and For All Mankind was still shooting for about a month. (Dickinson finished filming season 2 last year and is currently in post-production.)
It is believed that these shows originally intended to release their second season about a year after the first season in the October / November / December timeframe. This release date now seems less likely given the delays. It is possible for Apple to split the seasons. Release of the second season of its flagships in half to release at least some episodes this year.
