The holiday season makes us want to spend time on the couch with our families, a cozy blanket, a yummy snack, and a good movie.
With an abundance of channels and streaming services to choose from, sometimes it’s a full time job just to find what you want to watch. Apple TV+ will be streaming old favorite and original programming for kids and families to watch together.
