Just a couple of weeks ago Sony announced that the Apple TV app will make its debut on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 5 on November 12, which syncs up just in time with the PlayStation 5’s release. It was then rumored then that Microsoft too was working with Apple to release the app on the Xbox One and the Xbox Series X|S consoles. Coincidentally, Microsoft today confirmed that the Apple TV app will be released on Xbox consoles on November 10th, the Xbox Series X|S release date.
Apple TV joins the already countless services that both of these consoles already have like Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, etc and brings over 100,000 movies and shows that are available to buy or rent giving users/gamers even more options to cut the cord. With the Apple TV app, users will now have access to their libraries on their Xbox and PlayStation systems. If you’re looking for original content, Apple TV+ brings originals hits Servant, The Morning Show, See, and Defending Jacob via Apple TV+ for $4.99/month. Finally, users will be able to subscribe to Apple TV channels like CBS All Access, Showtime, and AMC+.
It’ll be interesting to see how this affects Apple’s sales of the Apple TV that is rumored to be refreshed during its November 10th, ‘One More Thing’ event announced today. For more information on the Apple TV app, visit Apple’s official page.
