Apple TV app launches in 100 countries

It's time to update your iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV devices because Apple just released the iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 software releases, which bring the all-new TV app, along with the Apple TV Channels feature that promise to boost your TV experience to the next level. Among them include the new Apple TV app. Parents, desperate for family friendly content, will be elated to see a Kids section that serves up editorially selected titles, a practice that continues Apple's push of being the content curators which we first saw in Apple Music. The pricing of the streaming services through Apple TV channels is the same as the standalone apps.

The biggest news from CES 2019 - that Apple and Samsung started playing nice, with the former bringing its Apple TV app and AirPlay 2 to the latter - has now come to fruition.

The revamped Apple TV app is available on iOS, tvOS and will be supported on 2019 Samsung Smart TVs.

Customers with eligible VIZIO, LG and Sony smart TVs will be able to enjoy AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support later this year. The update which is about 506MB in size is available now on your iPhone and iPad devices.

With new update, AirPlay 2 will support sharing videos, photos, music and more from the iPhone/iPad directly to an AirPlay 2-enabled smart TV.

Through the new app, users will be greeted by the "Watch Now" and "Up Next" features, allowing customers to keep track of all the TV shows and movies that they're watching.

Apple's Amazon Channels arrives with a fairly full lineup of more than 150 video apps including HBO, which was rumored to be on the fence about joining the service. While only a small slice of the overall SVOD universe is participating at launch - and Netflix is definitely not being integrated anytime soon - the mission is to present a comprehensive viewing offering inside the TV app. In the News app, you'll get the ability to "follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view".

Although full details remain scarce we do know some of the names that will be producing and staring in its content.
