For example, to watch Play Thrones or Billions you can subscribe to HBO or Showtime in the TV app, and you can see the shows there instead of in the respective service's apps. Other channels alternatives in the United States include CBS All Access, Starz, EPIX, Smithsonian, Nickelodeon, Mubi, Shudder and Comedy Central Now. You can share channel subscriptions with up to six family members
You can also download programs and movies from your subscriptions to view offline. Currently, it means the app is the only option for HBO subscribers to legally download as well Play Thrones for offline viewing.
The updated app contains sections for shows, movies, sports and kids, while the bottom line contains Watch Now, a library (where you can find your purchases) and search options. It also suggests things to look at based on your viewing history and settings. You will also see the updated app on Apple TV with today's release of tvOS 1
Elsewhere iOS 12.3 and macOS are expanding 10.14.5 AirPlay 2 support, allowing you to share videos, photos and more with a range of Samsung smart TVs. The Apple TV app is also available on newer Samsung models. Different LG, Samsung, Sony and Vizio models receive AirPlay 2 support later this year. Siri Suggestions for movies and shows now also offer an AirPlay option. AirPlay 2 support on smart TVs can cause people to subscribe to Apple TV + when it comes, as they may not need an Apple TV to watch original shows from the service on their large screens.
Looking ahead, with the Worldwide Developers Conference just a few weeks away, we will probably find out the first official details of iOS 13 in the near future.
