I was looking for a certain feature length movie.

I searched for "quest for the spear" on the TV app on macOS Catalina and found nothing - see the first screenshot below.

I searched for "quest for the spear" on the iTunes Store app on iOS 13.3 and found the movie I was looking for - see the second screenshot below.

So, am I to assume that the content in the TV app is different from the content in the iTunes Store app? Can someone else do this search on macOS and iOS and confirm my findings?

I couldn't find it on the Apple TV app, either. Maybe because it's a TV movie. You can still access the iTunes Store from within the Music app (and it's the full store, not just music), but for some reason Apple has "hidden" it. To bring it back:

  • Open the Apple Music app.
  • In the menu bar, choose Music > Preferences.
  • Go to the General tab and select iTunes Store.
  • Click OK.

Even with the iTunes Store enabled, I can only see music in the Music app.

I don't think that is the entire iTunes Store, perhaps it is mislabeled. When I search "quest for the spear" I find nothing, yet that same search yields the correct result when searching the iTunes Store on an iOS device.

That same TV movie was found on previous versions of OS X.. that is how I originally found it.
