AFI Movie Club now available directly on the Apple TV app

Variety reports that the American Film Institute’s AFI Movie Club, daily selections of favorite films new and old to watch during quarantine, is now available directly on the Apple TV app — thereby making it easier to stream the titles from the app or pay Apple to rent or buy the titles.

With its addition to the Apple TV app, the AFI’s films are listed under the “Browse by Collection” menu and will be updated daily with the latest selections. If a title is available to watch on a streaming service (like HBO Now, Hulu or Disney Plus), the Apple TV app will show you that option as well.

Launched last month, the AFI Movie Club is a daily virtual gathering “to leverage our collective love of film on behalf of optimism in this time of global uncertainty.” The American Film Institute says it will select an iconic movie each day for the world to watch together, “creating a communal viewing experience during these unprecedented times of social distancing.”
