Apple releases iOS 12.3 with redesigned TV app

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

The new app is available with the iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 releases and will be available on Mac this fall.

Fully integrated into Samsung's Smart TV platform, users can simply select the Apple TV app icon to access all of their iTunes movies and TV show purchases and browse more than 100,000 iTunes movies and TV shows to buy or rent, including titles available in 4K HDR, in pristine picture quality.

(Updates for TVs from LG, Vizio and Sony are coming later this year.) In addition to the new Apple TV app, those smart TVs also are gaining the ability to use Apple's HomeKit smart home standard, as well as AirPlay 2. In the US, Apple TV channels include services such as HBO, Starz, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, Tastemade and new services like MTV Hits, with more to be added over time around the world. Currently, the premium cable network's HBO Go and HBO Now platforms do not have this feature.

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. Samsung boasts that it is the first TV manufacturer to offer the Apple TV app and AirPlay 2.

Belotti nearly scored after the break but Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli denied his overhead kick. Even if not everything depends on us, we must reach the end with a clear conscience".

I suspected this might be true following Apple's original announcement of the new TV app, since these existing integrations rely on frameworks inherent to both iOS and tvOS themselves.

And, in a move that will make it even more accessible to users, Apple is also releasing this new app on some Samsung television with all 2019 and select 2018 models now compatible with the service. Netflix has said it will not be included in Apple's channels, which means programming on Netflix will appear in search results but viewers will need to exit the Apple TV app.

The update will also feature personalized recommendations for users and an Up Next section where users can find and watch content with activity synced across devices.

One added perk is support for offline viewing, meaning you can download shows directly to your device when you won't have future access to an internet connection.
