Here’s How The New Apple TV App Works
The hands-down most exciting feature of the new app (well,
besides Apple TV+, the highly-anticipated new streaming service coming to the app this fall) is Apple TV channels, which allows you to choose channels à la carte so you only have to pay for the ones you actually want to watch. Plus, since everything’s in one place, you don’t need separate log-in credentials for each. The initial offerings include HBO, Starz, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, and Tastemade, with more to come like CBS All-Access and MTV Hits. You can watch all the content on demand and ad-free, plus download shows to watch offline — which is a first for HBO. (So like, you can watch
Game of Thrones on an airplane. Mind = blown.) Also, with Family Sharing, up to six family members can share channel subscriptions.
