Apple launches redesigned TV app, adds Channels feature and curated sections

Also, there's a brand new iTunes library that gives users access to more than 100,000 movies and TV series.

Samsung Electronics has just announced that all of their 2019 Samsung Smart TVs, as well as select 2018 TV models, are getting a firmware update that will bring the all-new Apple TV app to over 100 countries.

Apple has released iOS 12.3 for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Galaxy S10 Series Boosts Samsung Electronics’ Market Shares in China and India
The new flagship will be available in two sizes – Galaxy Note10 and Note10 Pro, both of which will come in 4G and 5G versions. Samsung will also work with telecom operators to activate blockchain ID cards and related technologies, Chae said.

Customers will be able to subscribe to an impressive lineup of Apple TV channels all within the app and only pay for the ones they want. HBO Now, for example, costs $14.99 per month via Apple's App Store and Apple TV channels. The new app will include Apple TV+ streaming service once it goes live. The pricing of the streaming services through Apple TV channels is the same as the standalone apps.

What this quote doesn't say implies a detail that hasn't been previously revealed: the version of the TV app available on non-Apple platforms may not offer the full TV app experience.

The app also will serve as the home this fall for the Apple TV+ subscription service, which will include original shows from Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and others. With this software update, Samsung customers can now enjoy all of their Apple TV channels, as well as iTunes movies and television shows, right on their Samsung TV. In addition, subscribers can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline - which makes the Apple TV app the first (and for now only) place where HBO subscribers can download movies and shows such as "Game of Thrones" for offline viewing. More importantly, you get to watch 4K HDR content, which you can either rent or buy directly from within the app, something that wasn't possible before. With AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung Smart TVs, customers can now also effortlessly play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung Smart TV.
