AirPlay 2 support on Samsung Smart TVs rolling out with firmware update

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

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

Later this year, that app will support Apple's new Apple TV+ service, but for now, the main new feature is support for channels, which lets you subscribe to cable services like HBO and Showtime.

Apple has started rolling out its TV app in over 100 countries that includes India, which would run across devices, including iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs and all of the Samsung smart TVs that are part of its 2019 line-up.

In the USA, customers can subscribe directly to channels from the Apple TV app, including HBO, Starz, Smithsonian Channel, Epix, Tastemade and MTV Hits, with more to be added in the future.

In a twist even more shocking than anything Game of Thrones writers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss could muster, Apple also updated the third-generation Apple TV to give it the new Apple TV app.

Users can also share their subscription with up to five other family members at a time.

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. Apple said it plans to add more channels to the app "over time". While the presence of channels, iTunes content, and the forthcoming Apple TV+ are no surprise, what's missing is any reference to the other content now offered by the app on tvOS and iOS.

As the photo below shows, content is organized around five main headings: WatchNow, Movies, TV Shows, Sports, Kids, and Library.

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

There's been a huge boom in online movie and TV content over the past few years and Apple clearly wants to take a bite out of this ever-growing market. There's also a new kids section, and family sharing allows for family sharing with up to six people.
