On the other hand, Sony also announced that the PS5 would include Apple TV on launch day. At the same time, PS4 users will also enjoy the service on their last-gen console.
This news means that both Xbox and PS5 users can watch their bought content on their consoles. Moreover, they can also watch AppleTV+ originals along with their subscribed channels.
What It Means for Apple
In the past year, Apple had begun beefing up its Apple TV content library. First, it offered subscription bundlesto Showtime and CBS All Access programming. The company also snatched up all sorts of films to expand its content offerings.
At first, Apple limited Apple TV to Apple products. However, Gizmodo notes that the strategy wouldn’t work in the long run. So, Apple reached out to video game companies. The company wants its service on as many gadgets as possible.
Apple and Next-Gen Consoles
If Apple can get Apple TV on all next-gen consoles, that would be great for all parties. Both Sony and Microsoft had described their machines as the fastest console ever made. If you can get your home entertainment apps on these lightning-fast consoles, you’d also replace your old devices.
