Apple TV Channels is a feature in Apple’s TV app that lets you subscribe to streaming services right from the app. This has various advantages, including Apple billing and the flexibility to effortlessly drop and add subscriptions.
Apple first introduced the function in April of this year, and since then, it has continued to add more services on a regular basis. The complete list can be found below.
On iPhone, iPad, Mac, and Apple TV, the Apple TV app is accessible. Its goal is to bring together material from a variety of third-party streaming providers as well as the iTunes Store. Apple wants the TV app to be a one-stop-shop for all your streaming video requirements.
Apple TV Channels are subscription-based streaming services that you may purchase and watch directly from the TV app. Showtime, for example, is available through Apple TV Channels. If you do so, Apple will handle all billing and the movie will be hosted on their servers. This means you can watch it on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple TV right in the TV app.
Third-party apps that interface with the TV app, but are not Apple TV Channels, are also available. Hulu and Disney+ content, for example, will appear in your “Up Next” queue, but you’ll be directed to the proper app to watch it.
HBO was one of the first backers of Apple TV Channels, but support for the device was withdrawn in May with the launch of HBO Max. Existing HBO Now subscribers can continue to utilize the service, however, HBO Max is only available through the TV app and not through Apple TV Channels.
