Sony making Apple TV app available on 2018 through 2020 models

Sony has begun rolling out the software to its lineup of recent smart TVs, starting with the X900H.

"We take great pride in the superb picture and sound quality of our innovative TVs", noted Mike Fasulo, president and chief operating officer, Sony Electronics North America.

Sony says the Apple TV app will launch on select 2018 models and most 2019 and 2020 models by the end of the year in multiple regions. In case you didn't know, the app features Apple TV+, Apple's new video subscription service that offers original shows, movies, and documentaries, including The Morning Show, See, Defending Jacob, Ted Lasso, Greyhound, Boys State, and Beastie Boys Story. "Now with the Apple TV app, we are making great entertainment even more enjoyable, and easier for customers to access".

Apple hasn't been shy about its desire to get Apple TV+ on as many platforms as possible. Although still a ways away, the eventual listing of the Apple TV app on the Google Play Store is now a possibility, giving Android users access to Apple's premium streaming content.

The app has been limited to modern Apple devices running on the iOS, tvOS, and macOS software platforms, along with select non-Apple devices such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick range, Roku streaming devices, and select Samsung and LG devices.
