The present Apple streaming service is only accessible on Sony televisions for Android. Next year, Apple TV app will come to Chromecast with Google TV and the scenario will be completely changed.
Users will be permitted to watch original content available from Apple TV+, along with their existing library of movie and TV show purchases from iTunes through this app for Google TV. Third-party streaming subscriptions through Apple TV Channels will also be surfaced, customised recommendations will also be permitted. Through Family Sharing where up to six people can share memberships is how the latter can be done.
As an Apple TV+ subscriber, you can tune into award-winning original shows, movies and documentaries from the world’s most creative storytellers. This includes titles like “Ted Lasso,” “The Morning Show,” “Defending Jacob,” “Greyhound” and “Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas Special.”
The ability to add original content to Google TV’s Watchlist feature, something that is lost by Netflix lately, it was observed in an announcement that was made recently. Apple Music coming to its Smart Displays and speakers in recent times is framed by Google as a follow-up.
Officially, Chromecast with Google TV will get the Apple TV app “early next year,” with Google making a note of how it will be “one of the only streaming devices with all the major video subscriptions” — the consequent being the Apple TV set-top boxes. The extension of the app will be beyond Sony sets to “even more devices powered by Android TV OS in the future.”
Unfortunately, a client for Android phones and tablets, which would follow Apple Music was not mentioned in the announcement as we speak.
