Even if you’re not a soccer fan, you should still take advantage of this freebie. We rank Apple TV Plus as one of the best streaming services, and while it doesn’t offer a library that’s as large as the likes of Netflix, Max or Prime Video, what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in sheer quality with some of the best streaming shows around including "For All Mankind", "Shrinking", "Slow Horses" and "Ted Lasso" — although, that’s another one for the soccer fans.
