At this point, Apple TV recommendations are pretty basic. A true TV connoisseur already knows that HBO's Barry is something you have to see – but they can be useful for more common viewers. And while the Watch Now section is useful, there is no support for Netflix programs, which leaves most of the shows I am bingeing.
Channels are undoubtedly the biggest new feature Apple debuted this week. It allows you to quickly subscribe to content from HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and a handful of other services. The concept is not entirely new, as Amazon does pretty much the same with its own Prime Video Channels, but it is a new level for Apple users. You can always subscribe to HBO now or Showtime from their respective apps, but first you need to download, install and go through the subscription process. With channels, it only takes a few clicks to start seeing a whole new network. The entire subscription and viewing experience happens in the TV app. (I noticed an error at a time when the iPhone TV app led me to download third-party apps, but it's resolved.)
