Philips Announces Apple TV App On Android TVs

Philips TVs, and other Android TV devices, have just gained the Apple TV app including Apple TV+.

Apple TV is now available on the Google Play Store for Android TV devices equipped with 8.0 Oreo or higher, as long as it's not an operator-tier device.

This means that if you own a Philips TV, you can now access exclusive content on Apple TV+ (subscription required) and Apple's entire library of pay-as-you-go movies and TV shows.

If you have a penchant for HDR, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos content, then Apple is pretty much up there with the best.

Additionally, there are plenty of award-winning original shows, movies and documentaries from the world's most creative storytellers. Subscribers can enjoy Apple Originals, including series such as Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, For All Mankind, and Servant, as well as movies including Greyhound, Palmer and Wolfwalkers.

Also, on the Apple TV app, you can enjoy Apple TV channels, such as STARZPLAY, Acorn TV, and Noggin, and watch online and offline, ad-free and on-demand, directly on the Apple TV app.

Martijn Smelt, CMO Europe at TP Vision told StereoNET:

I'm delighted that we are now able to add Apple TV plus —one of the very best TV streaming services —to our Android platform, which, thanks to our award-winning picture processing technology and unique Ambilight system, will offer viewers Apple TV+ content in the highest picture and sound quality.

Owners of a newly bought 2021 model year Philips Android TV will find the Apple TV app pre-installed on their Smart TV home screen.
