As expected, Apple’s TV app began showing up for fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV owners in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany on Friday. The BBC iPlayer app had received an update earlier in the day that indicated viewers in the UK would soon be seeing the TV app come to their devices.
Apple’s TV app has been available in the United States since December of 2016. In September, Apple released the Apple TV app in Canada and Australia, and announced that it would be bringing the app to France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, and the U.K. by the end of the year.
The Apple TV app lets users iOS and fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV users browse content from over 60 video services without switching from one app to the next. The app offers information and recommendations about movies and shows, as well as live sports.
Over 60 streaming services are currently supported by the U.S. version of the TV app. With Friday’s expansion to new countries, support is being added for additional streaming content providers, including ITV, Channel 5, and BBC iPlayer in the U.K.
