TV+ and iTunes movies
Apple did talk about new TV features at yesterday's event but today the companies have confirmed that the Apple TV app has started rolling out to Sony TVs. The partnership was announced a while back but it has taken some time to complete the work.
- "The Apple TV app is available starting today in Europe on Sony’s XH90 series via a software update, and will roll out to over 100 other countries and regions soon," announced Sony Europe.
The company added that the app will be available on most 2020 and 2019 models as well as select 2018 Sony TVs before the end of the year. FlatpanelsHD is chasing a list of compatible models.
The Apple TV app provides access to the Apple TV+ subscription service with shows like The Morning Show, See, Defending Jacob and Ted Lasso, the full iTunes movie library (including all 4K HDR titles), and partner channels.
Sony confirms to FlatpanelsHD that the app supports streaming in 4K HDR and Dolby Atmos.
