According to Sony, Apple TV app is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on November 12. This is a good news for PlayStation owners because there aren’t many TV that support Apple TV app out there. This marks Apple’s first move into the gaming console platform.
Apple TV app on PlayStation 4 and 5
The announcement was made today on Sony’s PlayStation blog. PlayStation 4 and 5 owners will be able to enjoy many Apple TV+ exclusive originals and TV Shows like Amazing Stories, The Banker, and Beastie Boys Story.
Now, you can also watch movies or content you have purchased in iTunes or rent movies or TV shows through Apple TV+. The best part is that you can download content on Apple TV app for offline viewing.
The Apple TV app is also coming to Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on November 10. In fact, Apple has been busy making its TV app available on more platforms and TVs recently. The Cupertino firm is expanding its TV app to LG TVs this year in an attempt to compete with Netflix.
In addition, Apple TV apps are already available on some Samsung and Vizio TVs. But, still there is no sign of Apple TV app launch on other streaming services such as Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
Here are currently Free shows you can watch on Apple TV:

- Little America
- For All Mankind
- Snoopy in Space

New Entertainment Services is Coming to PS Software
Other entertainment services will be added to the PlayStation software, including Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch, and YouTube.
The PS5 Media Remote will come with newly added buttons for Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, and YouTube apps. But, sadly, there is no room for Apple TV+ this time.
Furthermore, new streaming apps are also coming to the PlayStation 5:
- Amazon Prime Video
Luckily, you won’t need to download these video apps separately because it’s all in the Media app. This will make it fast and easy to switch between gaming and entertainment content for a better experience on PlayStation. Besides, the PS5 console will feature a new Control Center, making it easier to control your music than ever before.
