Apple TV app available on Fire TV

The Apple TV app has arrived on Amazon Fire TV, just in time for the launch of its new streaming service.
Apple TV+ goes live worldwide today, offering a range of original TV shows and movies for £4.99 a month. To compete with Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, though, Apple TV+ needs to be os accessible as possible, and with the Apple TV app the primary method of delivery, Apple has been racing to launch it wherever it can.
Earlier this month, the Apple TV app launched as a channel on the Roku platform. Now, it’s followed that with a Fire TV release.
The app is now available on the second-generation Fire TV Stick an the 4K and basic versions of the Fire TV Stick, plus Fire TV boxes. The app is also available on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV and iPod touch, plus select Samsung smart TVs, and will come to LG, Sony and VIZIO platforms in the future.
It brings together a number of different ways to discover and watch movies, TV shows, and more, and gives access to a user’s iTunes video library on Amazon’s platform.
Within the app, a Watch Now section features Up Next, where users can pick up where they left off and stream their favorites with watching history synced across devices, as well as explore curated collections based on their viewing interests. The Apple TV app also includes a dedicated Kids section, with handpicked shows and movies for kids of all ages.
Most importantly, of course, the app offers access to all the Apple TV+ originals. For more on those, read our reviews here – or head this way for everything else you need to know about the platform’s launch.
