This has been a big week for Apple. In one week, they have unveiled and release Apple News+ to the public, show off a brand new credit card called “Apple Card,” as well as unveil the new Apple TV+ too.

Speaking of Apple TV+, that is the thing that the company is highlighting in their email this week. It is Apple’s new streaming service that is set to have its own original content and is expected to launch sometime this fall.

Here are the following programs that Apple is recommending this week:

LOL-Worthy TV

  • Veep (HBO): One final run for Selina Meyer. One more chance for us to bask in Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ brilliance on TV’s sharpest, funniest political satire.

 

  • What We Do in the Shadows (FX): In this spinoff of the cult hit, we’re loving watching these vampires take a bite of the Big Apple.

 

  • Jane the Virgin (The CW): The final season is here and we need to know whether it will be Rafael or Michael in the end.

 

New and Noteworthy

  • Hanna (Prime Video): As a young assassin with a particular set of skills, Esme Creed-Miles is a breakout star.

 

  • Carpool Karaoke (Apple Original): It’s a match made in musical theater heaven as Broadway superstars Ben Platt and Sara Bareilles hit the road.

 

  • Knightfall (History Channel): Tom Cullen’s Landry needs redemption. Maybe Mark Hamill can lend a hand.

 

Must-See Movies

  • Aquaman: Jason Momoa’s ocean-sized charisma drives a rip-roaring underwater adventure. Rent this on iTunes for $5.99.

 

  • Second Act: We couldn’t get enough of JLo and her pal Leah Remini in this uplifting comedy. Rent on iTunes for $4.99.

 

  • A Simple Favor: Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick make this clever mystery anything but simple. Rent on iTunes for $0.99.

 

March Madness

  • #4 Texas A&M vs. #1 Notre Dame (Women’s College Basketball): The tourney’s most electrifying scorers—Chennedy Carter and Arike Ogunbowale—are set for one epic dance-off. The game begins on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN.

 

  • #3 Texas Tech vs. #1 Gonzaga (Men’s College Basketball/Elite Eight): The #1 offense vs. the #1 defense. Brandon Clarke vs. Jarrett Culver. This is the stuff of hoop dreams. The game is on Saturday night, starting at 9 p.m. ET on TBS.

 

Appleosophy Picks:

  • Steve Jobs (2015 Film): For those that are needing a good movie to watch this spring, this is a great way one and shows off the life and career of Apple co-founder and former CEO, Steve Jobs.

 

  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS): When competitors Pemberton and Campbell charm America on a publicity tour, Sheldon and Amy try to win over Nobel laureates Kip Thorne, George Smoot and Frances Arnold; Halley’s fear of the dark leads to opportunity and conflict. This airs on April 4 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.

 

  • Formula 1: Drive to Survive (Netflix): The drivers, managers and team owners in Formula 1 live life in the fast lane — both on and off the track. This docu-series gives viewers exclusive, intimate access to the people in one of the world’s greatest racing competitions. Formula 1: Drive to Survive reveals the true story of the high-octane sport, which goes beyond the fight to be No. 1. There’s also a battle for the heart, soul and direction of the multibillion-dollar business. Storylines include changes that a team undergoes after an ownership change and the pressure felt to outperform other drivers.
