Roku users are about to get the double Apple starting today.
Roku announced Tuesday that the Apple TV app was immediately available on the Roku Channel Store to subscribe to channels, broadcast more than 100,000 movies and TV shows, and even access content that Apple users have purchased and registered in their iTunes library.
In addition, users will be able to access all of Apple’s original content when it is released on Apple TV + on November 1.
According to Ruku, Apple TV + will be available as soon as the Apple TV app is launched, and users will be able to subscribe to the $ 4.99 monthly subscription service in the Apple TV app on Roku devices.
However, the Apple TV app will not be available on older Roku models. (Compatible models are listed here, as well as in the table below). Users can find their device information in the Settings menu by selecting System, then About.
Roku has noticed that users who purchase an Apple TV + subscription on their Roku devices will, of course, be able to continue streaming online, as well as on their Apple devices via the TV app. (Remember that anyone buying a new Apple product gets a free subscription to Apple TV + for a year).
Apple TV +, the company’s big bet for high-quality streaming, will be launched in just over a month with a relatively narrow list of content offerings, namely Jason Momoa’s show, a series from Oprah and the joker filled with The Morning Show stars, apparently the most valuable article on the platform, but for which the plot has been, at best, elusive.
But! There is still hope for the platform as it continues to develop its list, and the subscription, which is already very cheap, comes with a seven-day trial to test Apple’s content. Origin.
In addition, there is a series of Mr. Night Shyamalan on the road with a sacred doll and glassy eyes. And for the little we’ve seen of this project, it seems really interesting to see it.
