Apple TV app expands to include iconic AFI Movie Club picks
The Apple TV app has a new collection you can browse if you’ve run out of ideas on what to watch while staying at home. It now features the AFI Movie Club collection, which is composed of iconic movies the American Film Institute selects each day to “creat[e] a communal viewing experience” during quarantine.
Each film selected for the program, which launched in March, is introduced by a celebrity guest. So far, films in the collection have been introduced by well-recognized names in the industry, including Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Brad Pitt, Natalie Portman and Neil Patrick Harris.
According to Variety, the AFI Movie Club will live under the “Browse by Collection” menu in the “Watch Now” page and will be updated daily. It will show how much the movie of the day will cost to buy or to rent, and it will let you know if the title’s available for streaming elsewhere, such as HBO Now or Disney+.
