Prime Video Channels > Apple TV+ Channels


If you love movies, you should take a look at some of the channels available on Prime Video and Apple TV+.

I've used both services in recent months and recommend Prime Video.

If you're going to use your computer or tablet or phone to watch, there's little difference in the two juggernauts, but if you like to kick back and watch on the big screen from your comfy chair, Prime Video Channels (top) is definitely the way to go.

The reason: you can instantly access your subscription channels (bottom row of the image up top) without any friction, simply by clicking on the circular icons.

Apple TV+, on the other hand, is set up in such a way that after you click on your channel's App tile on the grid (bottom row below),


you get a log-in screen that asks for your email and password (huh? I never used a password when I subscribed via Apple TV+) and from there it's a comedy of frustrated errors until you finally give up trying.

Take a ride on a monorail roller coaster

Wrote video maker David J. Ellis, "This is a single-pipe alpine coaster in Mieders, Austria. You reach the summit via a cable car and then sit on a small car with a brake lever and off you go. Having ridden it once using a little braking, I decided to try it a second time without using the brakes. This is SCARY!"

but are actually made from leather with a denim-effect print.


They sold out in two weeks but now they're back.


A snip at $6,900.

Wait a sec — what's that music I'm hearing?
