Is Apple TV Useless Or Am I Not Understanding It?

I bought a new iPad and activated the free 1 year Apple TV sub.

So near as I can tell itís just a big collection of shows and services (HBO, etc.),you can pay for. There appear to be a couple of original content offerings.

So is it just an app to show you content you can pay for? What would make someone pay a monthly subscription for it?

The original content is free for a year and part of what will be a subscription service after the year is up.

The original content is very limited, but that's why its currently free for a year.

I think they only have around 10-15 shows of original content currently.

I did like 'For all Mankind' I haven't watched anything else.

You can navigate to the limited content under Apple TV + icon. It’s kind of annoying pay stuff is everywhere.

Also liked For All Mankind but I’ll watch anything space related. There is a new one this week from some of the Always Sunny guys called Mythic Quest that looks promising.

I loved it until I finished morning show and for all mankind. Now it's pretty worthless. Basically a service to sign up for other services. Amazon already does this and it's available on all platforms.

It seemed like it has gotten passed by as many other devices/apps can match or exceed what Apple TV does. Can’t remember the last time I busted mine out.

Along with its own very minimal content, the allure of AppleTV+ is supposed to be that it can link up with lots of other services/apps like Netflix/Prime Video/YTV/etc and show media from all those sources within one app. So you don't have to jump from app to app. But the organization is shit, and it insists on shoving purchases at you that you don't want to pay for.

Thanks all for confirming. Apple must have some sort of long game in mind because it's unusual to see them face plant at something as bad as it seems they have done here.

Well, they have had their own Apple TV hardware box for a loooong time.

This is just them creating their own original content.

I do agree it is confusingly marketed.

The service, you don't get any additional free hardware for buying an Ipad or Iphone.

Also, I watched Servant and quite enjoyed it, only thing I tried so far.
