As recently announced by Sony, the Apple TV app is coming to games consoles and will be available for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 from November 12, that is when the PlayStation 5 will release.
Like the other smart TV apps, users will be able to subscribe to Apple TV+ originals and can access their movies and TV shows purchases from the iTunes Store. Here is the announcement from the official PlayStation blog:
“Enjoy Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, new and popular movies, and personalized, curated recommendations on the Apple TV app. That means users can enjoy Apple Originals like Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet, Ted Lasso, and The Morning Show through Apple TV+, subscribe to premium channels, and buy or rent movies and TV shows and access past purchases from Apple. The Apple TV app will also be available on PS4.”
The Apple TV app for the Xbox is also in the development process and may be available until the same time as the Playstation 5. Apple planned to make the TV app available on every platform since March 2019, when it was officially released. Recently, the TV app is also released on Sony smart TV sets.
Users are not able to purchase the content on the Amazon Fire Stick due to the disagreement with revenue sharing between Apple and Amazon. Meanwhile, customers will be able to subscribe to Apple TV+ and other Apple TV channels on PlayStation.
