Apple announces International Women's Day collection on Apple TV

It’s all part of Apple’s celebration of IWD 2020 throughout the month of March.

What you need to know

  • Apple has released a new collection for its Apple TV app in celebration of International Women’s Day
  • It will feature movies and TV shows from women “who are changing the narrative”.
  • You’ll also be able to get extended free trials for services like Starz, Britbox and History Vault for a limited time.

Apple has announced that it will release a new International Women’s Day collection of content for the Apple TV app, as part of its month-long celebration of International Women’s Day 2020.

In a press release Apple stated:

Starting today, customers can explore the Apple TV app’s International Women’s Day collection from women who are changing the narrative through storytelling across the movie and TV landscape. Curated collections include Bold New Voices, Women Directing Women, Rebellious Icons and Recent Watershed Moments in TV — all sourced from the Apple TV app’s robust video offering of Apple TV+ original series and movies, hit new movies to buy or rent, popular streaming apps and premium Apple TV channels. And for a limited time, the Apple TV app is offering extended free trials from Starz, BritBox, History Vault and Lifetime Movie Club channels, featuring inspirational and compelling female-empowered shows and movies. The International Women’s Day collection on the Apple TV app can be found at www.apple.co/IWD2020.

Now, unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with the content just now, as the link to the page doesn’t lead anywhere, and correcting the domain to ‘.com’ doesn’t fix the issue. However once up and running, you’ll be able to see a collection of different movies and TVs from a variety of sources including Apple TV+, the iTunes store, and streaming apps, as well as premium TV channels.

Apple had previously announced a series of Today at Apple workshops that would take place throughout March.

Apple has also confirmed that the App Store will celebrate women who develop apps and games, offering a new App of the Day and Game of the Day highlighting work by female developers, designers, and entrepreneurs.

It also plans to release a new curated collection on Apple Podcasts called “Changing the Narrative”. Finally, there will also be an Apple Watch activity challenge held on March 8.

Monaco Telecom launches IPTV service with Zattoo and Apple TV

Monaco Telecom rolls out a multiscreen IPTV platform with Zattoo and Apple.

After Salt (Switzerland) and Eir (Ireland), Monaco Telecom is Zattoo’s third B2B partner to use the Apple TV box as the standard reception device for its customers.

Existing cable TV customers will get access to mobile applications (iOS/Android) they can use across Europe. Future customers benefit from the newly built fibre-optic network with Apple TV as the core component.

Zattoo operates the complete service as an end-to-end solution and also handles the operation of the entire TV platform, the management of the TV application on Apple TV as well as the ongoing development of the platform and all front-end applications.

The Apple TV box works like a set-top box with operator login, enabling the automatic installation of the TV application. This also applies to iOS devices.

In addition to more than 200 TV channels – 150 of them in HD quality -, the TV service includes interactive features such as instant restart, time-shift, catch-up TV and nPVR, available for the first time in Monaco, according to Zattoo.

A French-language bouquet with 35 TV channels is also part of the offer. Pay-TV packages are available as part of a cooperation with Canal+.

U.K. Viewers Can Get a Disney+ Subscription at Apple TV+ Prices If They Hurry

Potential United Kingdom Disney+ subscribers that preorder before the service debuts in the country next month can score a deal that brings the monthly price of Disney’s streaming service down to the price of the usually much cheaper but more limited Apple TV+ streaming service.

An annual subscription is available until its March 24 launch for just £49.99 — £10 off the usual price. That’s exactly the same price you’d pay for an annual subscription to Apple TV+.

Disney+ offers access to thousands of classic Disney movies and TV shows, as well as brand-new Disney+ exclusive series and movies. The service also features Star Wars, Pixar, and Marvel content.

Disney+ subscribers in the U.K. £5.99 ($7.77) a month (£1 more than Apple TV+) or £59.99 ($77.78) a year (£10 more than Apple TV+), so the discount will save you a bit of change if you preorder the annual subscription.

The service allows streaming on up to four devices simultaneously, plus you can download movies and television episodes for offline viewing.
