All-new Apple TV app available in over 100 countries starting today
Apple announced that the all-new Apple TV app, which brings together all the ways to watch TV into one app, is already available in over 100 countries across iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and select Samsung smart TVs.
With the free iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 software update, customers around the world can now subscribe to Apple TV channels within the Apple TV app and watch on demand directly in the app. In the US, Apple TV channels include popular services such as HBO, Starz, SHOWTIME, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, Tastemade and new services like MTV Hits, with more to be added over time around the world.
Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password. Subscribers can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline, making the Apple TV app the first and only place where HBO subscribers can download movies and shows for offline viewing.
Beginning today, the new Apple TV app and AirPlay 2 are available on all 2019 Samsung Smart TVs and select 2018 models. The all-new Apple TV app will be available on Mac this fall.
