Apple revamps TV app for Samsung TV support, more direct channel subscriptions

Adjust Comment Print

The Apple TV app is exclusive to all 2019 and select 2018 Samsung smart TVs. In the U.S., options include HBO, Starz, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, Epix, and Tastemade. The advantage of signing up through the Apple TV app is that you can share your subscription with your Family Sharing circle and download content for offline viewing. Apple has been working with some of the biggest TV manufacturers to expand the footprint of its new TV app.

As the photo below shows, content is organized around five main headings: WatchNow, Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Kids, and Library.

Customers will be able to subscribe to an impressive lineup of Apple TV channels all within the app and only pay for the ones they want.

The app would also start featuring Apple's original video subscription service - Apple TV in the coming months.

In order to gain access to Apple TV and AirPlay 2, Samsung smart TV owners will have to install a new firmware update that enables the services.

Apple has rolled out iOS 12.3 and it's all about delivering a fresh new experience for Apple TV. I had trouble getting my phone to find the update at first, but once I took the device off Wi-Fi, and tried again, my iPhone saw the update.

Apple launched its redesigned Apple TV app, offering users the ability to stream more than 150 video services, in over 100 countries worldwide. That latter improvement doesn't address any of our suggestions in "Four Ways Apple Could Improve Apple Music" (11 March 2019) but it should make the For You suggestions more useful.

AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung smart TVs will let customers play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung set. Also, the Apple TV app features a new, dedicated "Kids" section, curated to showcase shows and movies for children of all ages.

You don't need the content provider's app to view the content.

As always, we recommend caution with installing macOS 10.14.5 unless you're an audio professional or OmniOutliner/OmniPlan user looking for fixes.
