Repeating on all channels

You can also watch Apple TV apps media on Roku sticks, Samsung televisions and (soon) TVs from other manufacturers LG, Sony and Vizio.
Amazon has made Apple TV available on Fire TV devices across 60 countries.

Apple will be offering a huge quantity of original content for just $4.99/month, including several shows that may turn out to be highly successful, such as ‘See’. ‘The Morning Show’ or ‘For All Mankind’.
How it works
