Apple Releases New TV App

Meanwhile, Samsung has added support for Apple's TV app, Apple TV Channels, and AirPlay 2 to its 2019 TVs and select 2018 models, so you can access Apple's subscription services and iTunes store without buying more Apple TVs.

As part of the TV app, you'll also find a dedicated Kids section which highlights editorially handpicked shows and movies for children of all ages. At launch, these Apple TV Channels include Epix, Starz, Showtime, HBO, and many more.

Apple has released the latest updates to its different operating systems including for Apple TV and the Apple Watches.

The TV app's legacy integrations may not offer the same level of experience as something like channels or Apple's own library of content, but they remain a solid way to centralize as much of your TV watching as possible in one app, and using the one unified Up Next queue.

As for the iOS 12.3 update, it addresses some of the bugs reported earlier apart from bringing in improvements in different apps like Apple News+, Apple Music, Apple TV Remote, AirPlay 2 and CarPlay.

Apple has major plans for your television and the big-screen shake-up is beginning today with the launch of the all-new Apple TV app. So to all the readers who have asked us over the years when Apple was going to update the third-generation Apple TV, which sold from 2012 through 2015, congratulations, your faith has been rewarded!

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

"Subscribers can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline, making the Apple TV app the first and only place where HBO subscribers can download movies and shows such as "Game of Thrones" for offline viewing", the post added. Started content will also show up under Up Next under the Watch Now tab in the TV app.

Samsung TVs have AirPlay2, which lets you play videos and other content from an iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer directly on the TV.
