Apple TV+ entered a crowded streaming market when it debuted last year. It’s been slowly increasing its presence by offering exclusive TV series, signing movie deals, and expanding its presence on TVs. This week, Apple announced its Apple TV app, and its Apple TV+ streaming service will roll out to Vizio SmartCast TVs in both the United States and Canada.
The Apple TV app is the conduit for all things Apple. It allows users to stream content from Apple TV+, subscribe to a la carte Apple TV channels, and browse iTunes for movies and TV shows available to rent or purchase. iTunes has a deep library with over 100,000 movies and television shows.
Vizio TV owners can download the Apple TV app and install it on their SmartCast TVs.
From now until October 16, owners can sign up for Apple TV+ and receive three free months of service. Once the free trial expires, users can choose to subscribe for $4.99 per month.
Apple TV+ does support Family Sharing, so a single subscription is also accessible to your family group members.
The Apple TV app and Apple TV+ service are already available on the iPhone, iPad, Mac, and, of course, the Apple TV. It can also be found on select Roku and Amazon Fire TV media boxes and Samsung and LG smart TVs.
Later this year, the app is expected to debut on Sony TVs, too.
