Apple Releases New TV App

iOS 12.3 is out now with overhauled TV app

The revamped TV app is also available now on Samsung TVs, along with AirPlay 2 support with an upcoming firmware update. Apple's also making it easier to keep watching shows, adding "one tap playback automatically plays your chosen TV show or movie on the last screen you used based on time and location". Support for Vizio, LG, and Sony TVs is coming later this year, and support for Roku and Fire TV devices is in the works as well.

The Apple TV app is where the Apple TV+ service, with Apple's original programming, will be found when it launches this autumn.

If Apple TV is available in your country, and you own a Samsung smart TV model from the previous year, keep an eye out for the firmware update.

Click on a channel to which you want to subscribe under Subscribe to Apple TV Channels.

In the USA, customers can subscribe directly to channels from the Apple TV app, including HBO, Starz, Smithsonian Channel, Epix, Tastemade and MTV Hits, with more to be added in the future. The new TV app is also now available on select Samsung smart TVs.

Lewis Hamilton: why would I leave a team that can be greatest?
Hamilton had been alerted to Harry's plight after he sent him a video of support from his hospital bed. Good luck wining the race in Spain and thank you for the gifts. "Lots of love from Harry and goodbye".

Apple officials would not comment on the economics of the channels, but people familiar with the matter said Apple will take a cut of the subscription fees when customers use the Apple TV app to sign up for a channel. Less hopping in and out of the app, the company believes, will make the experience more immersive.

iOS 12.3 is also available for the HomePod, where it adds support for joining some types of enterprise networks that require unique credentials. The update will install automatically when your HomePod is connected to the internet. See this discussion in TidBITS Talk for more details. Mac is the only platform not featuring the app at launch, but it will have it by the fall.

Oh, one more thing. It's probably worth installing if you use iTunes to manage your iOS devices.

Apple watchOS 5.2.1 will bring the company's ECG feature and irregular heart-beat notifications to five additional European countries.

If you haven't received any notification yet, you can check under Settings General Software Update.
