Apple brings its TV app to Android TV boxes

Apple has launched its Apple TV service on Android boxes and streaming sticks.

The company confirmed that the service was now available on the majority of devices running Android TV OS, including televisions, streaming sticks, and streaming boxes. “Introducing a new member to our streaming roster. The Apple TV app is now available on #AndroidTV devices,” the firm said in a tweet.

Last year, Google said that Apple TV would be coming to more Android TV OS devices in the near future, and now, ahead of Apple’s WWDC 2021, the company has brought the service to millions more devices.

Apple has struggled with its Apple TV+ streaming service and at the time of writing, users who sign up will have their $4.99 per month subscription cost refunded or credited towards other Apple services. So, for example, if you pay $19.99 for Apple One, you’ll receive a $4.99 monthly credit off your next bill.

In other Apple TV news, the company launched its Apple TV app on Nvidia Shield Streaming devices yesterday. Last year, the service came to dozens of new streaming sticks and devices, as well as the Xbox.
