Sony Europe has announced that customers can now access the Apple TV app on select Sony smart TVs to watch Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, movies, and personalised and curated recommendations.
The Apple TV app will begin rolling out immediately in Europe on Sony’s XH90 series via a software update.
Apple’s SVoD service offers original shows, movies and documentaries including The Morning Show, See, Mythic Quest, Ted Lasso, Bestie Boys Story, Greyhound and much more for €4.99/£4.99 per month. Sony’s smart TV users can browse the Apple TV app to buy or rent more than 100,000 movies and TV shows, including titles available in 4K HDR and with Dolby Atmos, as well as enjoy personalised and curated recommendations and access their library of movie and TV show purchases from Apple.
Select Sony TVs also support AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. With AirPlay 2, customers can play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their smart TV. HomeKit allows customers to easily and securely control Sony’s smart TVs using the Home app or by asking Siri on their Apple devices.
The Apple TV app will launch on Sony’s select 2018 TV models and most 2019 and 2020 models by the end of the year.
