Apple created and launched iTunes in January of 2001, allowing users to listen to music anywhere on their Apple devices. iTunes became a noteworthy addition to the streaming industry as Apple added streaming movie and TV through iTunes and Apple TV. iTunes is now more than just a music player or a podcast app. This plunge into the television streaming space adds to the many unplugged streaming entertainment options.
iTunes allows users to have access to all of their Apple content (music, movies, TV, video, and pictures) in one place, the iTunes library. This is a unique feature in the streaming TV industry. It's an added convenience to customers to have all of their content in one place.
For $99 users can purchase Apple TV, a streaming device that syncs with other Apple devices and allows users to watch their favorite shows and movies from their TV and other Apple devices.
Users are able to watch movies ad-free and have parental controls for movies, giving flexibility for family viewing.
Apple has created a great iTunes app for its users that's available in the app store. The overall user experience is great and users give the iTunes mobile app a rating of over 4 stars.
iTunes users don't pay a monthly fee to use iTunes. Users simply pay per rental or purchase. Overall, iTunes is a great entertainment platform where users can access music and pictures, and stream TV and movies. Users are able to watch movies ad-free and have access to parental controls while watching. And with a large library of over 2,000 TV series and over 20,500 movies to choose from, users have a great selection.
TV episodes and movies can be a little pricier to rent on iTunes. Rentals start around $3.99 for movies and $2.99 for new TV episodes.
Even though iTunes provides syncing with all of your other Apple products, they are closed off to other common devices (like those using Android).
iTunes has a large library to choose from, but new releases are only available to purchase, not rent. Whereas Amazon Prime allows its customers the option of purchase or rental.
With Apple TV, users can't play DVD's, CD's, or do any kind of recording of their favorite TV shows. Also, no cables come with the purchase of an Apple TV and will need to be purchased separately.
With iTunes users pay per rental or purchase. There is no library of free movies and TV for users to access. This is mainly due to the fact that users do not pay a monthly fee.
Although iTunes has many great features to their services, there are some drawbacks to consider. The main drawback to iTunes is that if you aren't an Apple user than Apple TV and iTunes isn't even an option for you. iTunes only works for Apple devices. In addition, iTunes doesn't have a library of free movies and TV series to watch.
Really enjoy iTunes! It’s easy to find your music on your library, you can watch movies, listen to podcasts.
Watch iTunes movies and TV shows on Apple TV With the iTunes Movies and TV Shows apps, the latest movies and hit TV shows are always available.
Honestly never was much of a fan. I bought a movie and three albums and one day all of them disappeared and I have never been able to retrieve them again.
A simple service that gets you access you a large variety of music, TV shows, and movies. Easy set up that allows anyone to access the service.
The last software update Apple released changed iTunes into many sectors such as iMovie and others, making it hard to know where all your purchased content is. Also, download times are very long.
We got a free trial of iTunes movies but it’s very difficult to stream if you don’t have an Apple TV. I don’t like that we’re unable to stream it with our Google Chromecast or Firestick. I feel like it forces you to watch programs on your phone or buy an Apple TV.
Everything runs very smoothly. Technology works great. I do wish it was a little bit easier to stream without internet.
Great for downloading my favorite television shows and watching in any comfortable situation on my phone.
Great service for buying digital movies. Only thing is that some of the movies I wanted to buy was not on the platform! Overall, service is great had not troubles watching bought movies
iTunes synced together so seamlessly across all my devices so it’s very easy to use. If I made a mistake in ordering a Tv show or movie, they do refund it. They are always updating it as well so it stays current. It’s nice to have.
itunes has a surprising surplus of movie and TV titles to select from, a very good program.
Great for on the road. Downloading movies and shows and taking it with you. Hate that it's apple specific but we only own ipads and iphones so it's not a problem just a limitation. Works well and great quality.
We have been loyal Apple customers for a long time and have compiled quite the collection of movies and music through iTunes. Our AppleTV is a great way to enjoy our previous purchases as well as to access our other streaming services. I love that you can search the app library and download just about any app to the AppleTV!
While i completely hate Apple Music, I love iTunes for my TV shows. Since there are shows across all networks, there isn’t anywhere to pick and choose my shows and keep them all together. With iTunes, I have purchased box sets to stream including shows like Gilligans Island, The Office, Seinfeld, Ash Vs Evil Dead, The X-files. I love being able to take my favorite TV shows and keep them all in one centralized service.
Itunes has great content for a relatively good price. All of the mew movies, music, and Tv shows are provided. Even though you have to purchase them. The updates provide smoother access through the menus and make the experience better.
iTunes is the gold standard of internet tv streaming. With great titles and a variety of content, this service lets you drop traditional cable tv services. I love the cost structure and ease of use.
iTunes is not my favorite way of streaming videos because the pricing is high and there are never free shows listed that are worth watching.
Always easy to find the content I’m trying to access and find recommendations for new content
iTunes is a great streaming place. I love that you can get all the current tv shows on there
I like to download and purchase movies from ITunes when they aren’t offered on my streaming services.
Apple gave me a free one-year membership for iTunes. It's similar to all of the other movie apps. I enjoyed the app!
iTunes is one of the ways I have started switching to Digital content vs. physical copies. It helps to save room and to keep from collecting dust with movies an CDs for sure! Though I use mostly streaming services now, I still check up on my iTunes collection (though it is small) from time-to-time! Plus iTunes Match helps keep everything on all of my digital devices!
iTunes was great when it first came out. Now, especially with streaming services, the user interface is lacking and it can be difficult to sync up devices and storage without losing everything entirely.
Great library of show and movies and great quality. I've been using iTunes for several years and never have had a issue.
I love itunes. It is a very enjoyable app to use. It is easy to use and has a good display and easy access to find what you are looking for.
I love iTunes! I just recently got an iPhone and have enjoyed this streaming service. The Unser interface is convenient.
I feel like streaming is so normal these days- itunes is almost unnecessary. But I love how many music videos and random interviews there are on itunes. It almost feels like its own type of genre.
Great product and app. Works well. Always have what I’m looking for. Sometimes it is expensive.
apple anything slaps. it’s amazing. unreal. impeccable. so much creativity and i love it.
It's tough to match Apple's streaming content and producer relationships. I really love watching/listening!
ITunes is fantastic when it comes to buying movies. The price may be expensive, but the quality of the video is great.
Itunes has a great variety of music and shows. I am always able to find entertainment through this service.
Great service and easy to use. Being able to get great selections anywhere I go is so convenient.
I own so many apple products and I feel that for some reason iTunes is not user friendly. Content is good.
Not a huge fan of iTunes. It was great for awhile, but its frustrating that it isnt compatible with all of my devices.
I love all things Apple. I have basically one of every device and I pay for the monthly cloud service that keeps everything linked.
I am satisfied. After major IOS updates, some kinks in the software needs to be ironed out but it is an excellent platform.
I am a very loyal apple user and so I love renting movies or buying movies on itunes. It is so easy to use and is never a complicated experience. I am loyal to a few movie series as well and I love that these are often offered as bundles as well.
I love iTunes and I use it everyday but the only thing is I bought so much before iCloud became a thing and it was real money but I don’t have any of those shows and movies anymore and that’s bummer..
I tunes has almost everything that you could every look for. It is very convenient.
I think that it is easy to use but it is expensive for what you get. We discontinued because we were using others for a better price.
I have always really enjoyed using iTunes for my library, especially since my I have so many Apple products. It does feel like there are updates constantly, which starts to get a little bit old and I don't use the iCloud but they keep sending me stuff for that whether I want it or not. I don't see myself moving away from iTunes anytime soon.
ITunes is so reliable and I love how fast it works! I have over 1000 things bought from iTunes and I don't regret it!
they have a good variety of music, TV, and movies. I use it mostly for music downloads
Love the selection of streaming media. User friendly and perfect for those of us that don't do as well with technology.
We’ve been iTunes customers for as long as they’ve been around. Absolutely love the service, as well as the selection. They’ve done a great job at being competitive in offering more selection, as well as new ways of streaming music.
The songs are reasonably priced. I love how you can easily find the songs you are looking for. I like how they make charts of the newest songs so they are easier to find. It's convenient to use and you can have it on a variety of devices.
iTunes for tv shows is not my favorite to use. It costs too much in my opinion.
My family loves iTunes. We feel the variety is awesome. We seem to find all the things unique and hard to find within the entertainment world right there on iTunes.
iTunes has never been the first option for streaming TV but I think it does a good job of it! Just not my favorite way to watch TV.
