Apple TV app on ‘Xbox next week’ – Microsoft (Update: now available)
The Series S, Series X and Xbox One gaming systems will all gain Apple’s TV app starting from next week, Microsoft has confirmed.
Apple TV everywhere
This is just the latest in a long line of announcements concerning Apple’s TV app, which is now ubiquitousacross televisions, gaming consoles and streaming hardware, as well as Apple’s own Apple TV.
In October, we learned the app is also coming to PlayStation 4 and 4 consoles.
Once the TV app is installed on an Xbox you can use it to access all your Apple TV content, including TV+ and movies and TV series purchased from iTunes. If you are an Xbox user that doesn’t have a TV+ account, you can sign up for a free trial directly from the device.
You can also purchase titles from Apple and subscribe to channels such as Showtime or CBS All Access, and others.
What Microsoft said
“When our all-new Xbox family of consoles launch worldwide on November 10, you’ll have more than just the entertainment apps you enjoy today on Xbox One. We’re excited to share that the Apple TV app is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10.”
Sony recently began updating its more recent smart TVs with the addition of the Apple TV app.
