Rogers is also offering a three-month subscription to Apple TV+ free of charge to first-time subscribers to the service through November 23, 2022, according to the announcement, first shared by the blog iPhone in Canada.

Samsung and Roku are also offering three months of Apple TV+ for free on select devices for a limited time, in what appears to be a coordinated marketing push by Apple ahead of the holiday season. Apple's services business set a June quarter record with $19.6 billion revenue and was the company's second largest revenue source behind iPhone sales.

Apple TV+ is normally priced at $5.99 per month or $59.99 per year in Canada. The service provides access to Apple's original series and films, ranging from the award-winning comedy series "Ted Lasso" to the hit workplace thriller "Severance."

In addition to rolling out as an app on Ignite devices, Apple TV+ can be accessed on the Mac, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD boxes, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S, Xbox Series X, on select streaming devices from Google TV, Fire TV, and Roku, on the web at tv.apple.com, and on many other platforms.

I know what I'm about to say is completely unrelated to this article. But this movie it was so underrated in my personal opinion. Hopefully we see more John Lasseter Skydance animation films via Apple.

This movie was a mess compared to most Pixar films. With the exception of Ratatouille, Pixar films are written where we learn something new about the plot or character with each scene. This was like a simple Dreamworks picture where the scenes were filler tasks for the characters, and the action was a series of meaningless tasks likened to a scavenger hunt.

Keep in mind Lassetter joined Skydance about half way through the production of this film. Hopefully this means reworking how upcoming projects are developed and that makes for richer storytelling.

Sadly, Rogers is losing the game. They need to get a Rogers Ignite TV app on the Apple TV instead of this.

I just switched from Rogers Ignite TV to Bell Fibe TV (prior to the July 8th outage) and I am so much happier with the video quality, performance and overall service compared to Rogers' Ignite.

I was on a Gigabit connection with Rogers and I am on a 1.5 Gigabit now on Fiber, with home phone service which I didn't even have with Rogers before I am paying $20 less than I was with Rogers.

Yeah I couldn't finish it - I think after 10 min or so… I just could not watch any more of it. It was not how it looked or how it was animated, it was the dialog, the cliché moments. It was just so past-due basic. I am happy that others liked it. Not for me, and I am a huge animation fan.
