Microsoft and Apple have announced that the Apple TV app will be released on Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Xbox Series S next week, as well as launching new Xbox consoles worldwide: November 10. The Xbox platform will be the first console Apple TV application to get this console. PlayStation 5 will not be available at launch. Sony released PS5 entertainment applications in October, and Apple TV is not among them. The Xbox series is far from the only entertainment platform Apple has avoided. Android is still the biggest problem.
Apple’s poor naming method may confuse many people, so let’s clarify. Not only does the Apple TV app have access to Apple TV+, which is a competitor of Netflix at a price of Rs. India charges $99 a month and the United States charges $5 a month, but you can also buy and rent movies from the iTunes Store (now called Apple TV because “iTunes” is being phased out). The latter has access to 2500 movies in India/35,000 movies and TV shows in the US, while Apple TV+ only has about 45 movies and TV shows.
Most importantly, the Apple TV app also allows you to access Apple TV channels, which are actually other streaming services built into Apple TV. In India, this includes Eros Now Select (39 rupees per month) and Tastemade (79 rupees per month). The US list is much longer and has features like AMC+, Britbox, CBS All Access, Cinemax, Epix, Mubi, Showtime and Starz, and prices range from $6 to $11 per month.
For Apple, the Xbox series has joined more and more third-party devices, including Amazon Fire TV Cube and Fire TV Stick, Roku devices, as well as from Insignia, LG, Onida, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba and Vizio. Of course, it can also be used on all Apple devices, whether it’s iPhone, iPad, MacBook or Apple TV (the streaming box with the same name as the app is all talking about naming).
For Xbox, the Apple TV app has joined Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, Spotify, Disney+, HBO Max, YouTube TV, Hulu, NBC Peacock, Vudu, FandangoNow, Twitch, Sky Go, NOW TV and Sky Ticket and other TV shows Many others.
