Apple TV app lands on Android TV with TV+ & iTunes movies

02 Jun 2021 | Rasmus Larsen |

The Apple TV app is now available on Android TV devices including the Nvidia Shield. The app lets users access Apple TV+ content as well as the iTunes movie library.

Apple TV on Android TV

After bringing its app to Google TV and many other platforms, Apple has now made it available widely on Android TV devices via the Google Play store. Google says that Android TV reaches 80 million active devices. On Nvidia Shield – a direct competitor to the Apple TV box – the app supports streaming in up to 4K Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. The app is also available on TVs like those from Philips, TCL and Hisense, although audio/video support will vary from device to device. Philips confirms that Dolby Vision and Atmos are also enabled on its TVs. Sony had struck a separate deal to make the app available on their Android TVs ahead of time.

The app provides access to the Apple TV+ subscription service with shows like Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, For All Mankind and Servant as well as iTunes movies for rent or purchase – much like Google's own movie store. Google said that the app requires a device running Android 8.0 or later. It supports simple voice commands with Google Assistant. The app can be downloaded from Google Play here.
