I canceled Apple TV Plus — here’s why I just changed my mind

Last December, my iPhone started buzzing with a reminder. “REVIEW APPLE TV PLUS SUBSCRIPTION,” the reminder read, jogging my memory that the year-long free trial of Apple’s subscription streaming service I had started nearly 12 months earlier was about to come to an end.

The only Apple TV Plus show I had ever watched with any regularity was Ted Lasso, and I had already binged my way through both seasons. I enjoyed the musical series Schmigadoon!, but that seemed like a one-and-done kind of show. Other than the occasional Charlie Brown holiday special — and Apple tended to make those free to stave off public outcry over hiding It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown behind a paywall — I assumed I hadd all the mysteries explore Apple TV Plus had to offer.
