Samsung Adds Apple TV App, AirPlay 2 to 2019 TVs

Apple Rolls Out Revamped TV App In Prelude To Streaming Service Launch

Apple Launches New TV App, Providing Access to Over 150 Video Apps Including HBO, Hulu, CBS, Showtime, Starz, ESPN and Amazon Prime Video

The Kids section has handpicked selections from Apple's editorial staff, and the Library is where you'll find the movies and shows you bought through iTunes.

In the USA, its roster of paid channels includes HBO, Starz, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, Epix, Tastemade, and MTV Hits.

If you were holding back on upgrading to iOS 12.3 thinking it could negatively affect the performance of your old iPhone or iPad, you can now upgrade to it without any worries.

Through Apple's Family Sharing feature, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password.

Although full details remain scarce we do know some of the names that will be producing and staring in its content.

Most Apple TV Channels come with a free trial.

Apple launched its redesigned Apple TV app, offering users the ability to stream more than 150 video services, in over 100 countries worldwide.

While the software upgrade is available May 13 for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV customers, it will also be available on Mac this fall. Apple practically takes over the hosting of the contents, billing for the streaming and allows viewing from the app itself.

In the TV app, go to the Watch Now tab.

Tap on your Profile icon at the top right. While the presence of channels, iTunes content, and the forthcoming Apple TV+ are no surprise, what's missing is any reference to the other content now offered by the app on tvOS and iOS.

If you've had trouble with the first restart after a minor upgrade, try quitting all running apps first or log into a clean admin account.

Available in various colors, this case features a combination of TPU and Polycarbonate for dual protection from drops and scratches. Plus, the release notes say "One-tap playback automatically plays your chosen TV show or movie on the last screen you used, based on time and location".
