Many of us will spend our time streaming content on our preferred streaming platforms today, before we succumb to Thanksgiving-induced food poisoning. Apple TV Plus is one of the best on the score — if, that is, you’ll primarily be doing this streaming with family and loved ones and want to find something that everyone can watch together.
Apple TV Plus for Families
Apple’s service is certainly nowhere close in scale to its much bigger rivals like Netflix and HBO Max. However, you’ll find plenty of family-friendly fare, some of which we’ll highlight below to get you started with some recommendations. In no particular order:
Charlie Brown, who are you?
Peanuts animation classics have always been a favourite watch for holidays such as Thanksgiving. Apple’s streamer also has a heartwarming documentary Peanuts lovers will love this story about Charles M. Schulz, the creator of Peanuts. Narrated by Lupita Nyong’o, famous fans including Drew Barrymore, Kevin Smith, and Al Roker talk about how much of an impact the comic strip made on their lives.
Continuing with the theme of animation, Apple has plenty of titles along those lines if you’re looking for something aimed especially at kids.

This is the Apple TV Plus’s most popular streaming release. AcapulcoA half-hour of hilarious comedy about Maximo Gallardo’s quest for the perfect job in his 20s. It tells how he found the cabana boy position at Las Colinas in Acapulco, which is the best resort. From there, it was all about the effects that this had on Maximo’s life and every subsequent event.
As Season 2 unfolds in 1985, Máximo deals with upheaval at Las Colinas, plus unexpected problems at home — as well as a new love interest who might rival the girl of his dreams.
Coda This is the 2021 Apple TV Plus version that earned the streamer the Best Picture Oscar.
The title refers to both the “coda” Section of music, as well an acronym which stands for Child of Deaf Adults. Emilia Jones, the star, plays 17-year-old Ruby, the only member of her family who isn’t deaf.
Instead of helping her father fish, she hopes to attend a music school to develop her singing skills.
Finally, we come to what’s arguably the biggest Apple TV Plus release of them all so far. The one that crossed over to being a mainstream hit — and, in fact, introduced so many people to what the iPhone maker was attempting to do with its streaming service.
Ted Lasso is Ted Lasso’s protagonist. This fish-out of-water comedy is hilarious, a small-town soccer coach who’s brought over to England to lead a professional football club. With him is his Southern charm, big mustache, and plenty of good quips. “For me, success is not about the wins and losses. It’s about helping these young fellas be the best versions of themselves on and off the field.”
