Apple TV app launches in 100 countries

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

The big deal with the new Apple TV app (right now, at least) is that you'll be able to subscribe to various channels right from within the Apple TV app, which theoretically should make things easier on everyone. The updated app is available on Apple TV, iOS, and Samsung SmartTVs and adds a new, dedicated kids section, plus new subscription offerings. In the United States, such channels include HBO, STARZ, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, Tastemade, MTV Hits and more. Apple practically takes over the hosting of the contents, billing for the streaming and allows viewing from the app itself.

Apple has announced that its new Apple TV app has arrived in more than 100 countries for its device owners, as well as for users who own select Samsung smart TVs.

A user's personalized recommendations will be pulled from a curated list of shows and movies from more than 150 video apps and streaming services and over 100,000 iTunes movies and TV shows.

The Huawei logo stands on a Huawei office building in Dongguan in China's southern Guangdong province on 18 December 2018. In December, Huawei CFO Wanzhou Meng was arrested in Canada on suspicion of violating US sanctions concerning Iran.

It was confirmed back at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 that the latest Samsung Smart TVs will get the new Apple TV app as well as support for AirPlay 2. In the Home app on the iPhone, tap the house button in the upper-left corner, and under Speakers, tap Software Update. Apart from these, a new 7.3 version of firmware for Apple TV 3 has been released as well.

Also starting today, customers with AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung smart TVs can effortlessly play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their smart TVs.

I suspected this might be true following Apple's original announcement of the new TV app, since these existing integrations rely on frameworks inherent to both iOS and tvOS themselves. You can resubscribe to a channel anytime through the TV app. In an update that appeared alongside macOS 10.14.5, Apple has released iTunes Device Support Update, a 108.3 MB download that supposedly "ensures proper updating and restoring for iOS devices using iTunes for Mac".
