The Apple TV app has arrived on Roku, as the tech giant expands its reach ahead of its streaming service launch.
Apple TV+ goes live worldwide on 1st November, offering a range of original TV show’s and movies for £4.99 a month. To compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, though, Apple TV+ needs to be os accessible as possible, and with the Apple TV app the primary method of delivery, Apple is racing to launch it wherever it can.
As of today, the Apple TV app is now available as a channel on the Roku platform. The channel brings together a number of different ways to discover and watch movies, TV shows, and more, and gives access to a user’s iTunes video library on the Roku platform.
Within the app, a Watch Now section features Up Next, where users can pick up where they left off and stream their favorites with watching history synced across devices, as well as explore curated collections based on their viewing interests. The Apple TV app also includes a dedicated Kids section, with handpicked shows and movies for kids of all ages.
Apple TV app is also available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and iPod touch and will soon be on Mac. The Apple TV app is available on select Samsung smart TVs too, and will come to Amazon Fire TV, LG, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future.
