Apple TV+ opens its heart to classic rom-coms

Almost every film or TV show that appears on Apple TV+ was created just for the streaming service. But it’s not 100% Apple original programs — there are occasional additions of classic movies. The Mac-maker apparently though couples would enjoy some lighthearted love stories for St. Valentine’s Day and added a half a dozen classics to its lineup.

As mentioned, the list includes Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in Pretty Woman, and Never Been Kissed starring Drew Barrymore. There’s also Cameron Diaz and Ben Stiller in There’s Something About Mary, as well as Reese Witherspoon in Sweet Home Alabama. Plus, subscribers can watch The Five-Year Engagement with Jason Segal and Emily Blunt and The Proposal starring Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock.

Add a bit of romance to your Valentine’s Day with any of these films. And don’t wait too long, most will only be available on Apple TV+ until February 28, though some last until March 15.

Watching any of all comes with a $6.99-per-month subscription the Apple’s streaming service.
