Apple revamps its TV app ahead of streaming service launch

The redesigned Apple TV app arrived with the iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 software updates, bringing the Apple TV Channels announced back in March, as well as an improved design, personalized recommendations, and more. While the presence of channels, iTunes content, and the forthcoming Apple TV+ are no surprise, what's missing is any reference to the other content now offered by the app on tvOS and iOS. In the United States, such channels include HBO, STARZ, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, EPIX, Tastemade, MTV Hits and more. There's also a new kids section, and family sharing allows for family sharing with up to six people.

The update marks the first time a TV maker has integrated both of the Apple platforms, which provide ready access to Apple TV channels as well as iTunes movies and TV shows. 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. Apple said more channels would be added over time around the world. Some 100,000-plus movie and TV titles from iTunes have also been added to the app, including purchased titles called out in a new Library tab.

Apple TV Channels have been included in the new TV app and this is meant to facilitate the streaming of videos of various different genre consolidating them in one place.

If you were holding back on upgrading to iOS 12.3 thinking it could negatively affect the performance of your old iPhone or iPad, you can now upgrade to it without any worries.

The Apple TV App is available only in certain countries and regions.

With AirPlay 2, owners of updated Samsung smart TV owners will be able to stream videos and other content from iPhones, iPads, and Mac PCs directly to the TV. In the News app, you'll get the ability to "follow a magazine from the Apple News+ catalog browsing view". You can resubscribe to a channel anytime through the TV app. According to the changelog, iOS 12.3 introduces AirPlay 2 support for the big screen.
