Apple's TV app reaching 100 countries including India

Apple's TV app reaching 100 countries including India”

The app lets you subscribe to Apple TV channels, paying only for those you want, and watch directly in the app, on demand.

Starting May 13, the overhauled TV app, which features a fresh new look and improved functionality, will be available in over 100 countries on iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, all 2019 Samsung smart TVs and select 2018 models.

iOS 12.3 includes a brand-new TV app, which gives users access to Apple TV Channels.

There's also some new subscription services coming to the app with users in the United Kingdom getting access to StarzPlay and Smithsonian with Apple confirming more options will be coming over time. Apple has even thought about the kids in the family with a "Kids" section that features curated content for children of all ages.

Samsung is the first TV manufacturer to offer the new Apple TV app on a smart TV platform.

Most Apple TV Channels come with a free trial.

The app also will serve as the home this fall for the Apple TV+ subscription service, which will include original shows from Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and others. Support for Vizio, LG, and Sony TVs is coming later this year, and support for Roku and Fire TV devices is in the works as well.

Along with India, US, Canada, Nepal, select African as well as Middle Eastern countries are also getting Apple's TV app.

Users can access more than 100,000 TV shows and movies through iTunes, the company says, and directly sign up for popular video services ("channels"). 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. The TV app update adds the aforementioned Kids section at the top of the screen. Apple said it plans to add more channels to the app "over time". In an update that appeared alongside macOS 10.14.5, Apple has released iTunes Device Support Update, a 108.3 MB download that supposedly "ensures proper updating and restoring for iOS devices using iTunes for Mac".
