Apple Rolls Out Revamped TV App In Prelude To Streaming Service Launch

Subscribers to these services can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline plus up to six family members can share these subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password.

Apple's new TV app is also rolling out via an update to tvOS (also numerated 12.3) on the company's Apple TV set top boxes.

The Apple TV Channels lets you subscribe to a range of channels like HBO and Showtime for a monthly fee.

Apple's sales from its services business, which also includes sales from iCloud, the App Store and other businesses, reached $11.45 billion in its most recent fiscal quarter, compared with analyst estimates of $11.32 billion, according to FactSet data.

Jimmy Carter recovering from surgery after fall
Carter, 94, was said to be "recovering comfortably" at the Phoebe Sumter Medical Center in Americus, Georgia. He is hopeful the state will allow him to roll over the unused limit to next season.

The Apple TV app would be made available for MacBook users later this year.

Available in more than 100 markets, Apple's new app pulls many of those services together to show viewers where they can watch live or on-demand movies, TV shows, news and sports via a single search, or through personalized recommendations. Apple made sure to point out that the Apple TV app is the only place where HBO subscribers can legally download episodes of the hit show Game of Thrones, which is approaching its grand finale (viewers outside the U.S. have other options).

Yesterday, Apple released iOS 12.3 with plenty of bug fixes and a new TV app. iOS 12.3 is likely going to be the last major point release of iOS 12 as the company now focuses on iOS 13 due for unveiling next month at WWDC 2019. 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. In the Home app on the iPhone, tap the house button in the upper-left corner, and under Speakers, tap Software Update.

Also starting from today, with AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung Smart TVs, customers can effortlessly play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung Smart TV.
