    Mm...there are select smart tvs from samsung and LG that can access Apple TV app. You have to check your specific smart tv. There’s also select Roku and Amazon Fire TV streamers that can access Apple TV app.

    For Android devices, go to tv.apple.com and use Chrome browser.

    Btt, just finished episode 1 of See and half-finished episode 1 of For All Mankind ( alternate reality series )....both shows show promise.

    For Sony smart TVs, you can download the app from the Google Store. For TCL, you’re out of luck :whistle: Seems it doesn’t appear elsewhere there.
    Well, I believe it is so but I haven’t yet seen the content in the Philippines. From the descriptions and comments made so far, content on Apple TV+ is the same with almost all countries where available, but may differ later on with newer shows added depending on restrictions with each country. For now, its a rather small lineup available for all platforms.

    I believe so. Different contents for different countries ( for ex. Netflix) only happens because of film distribution rights per country. Netflix does not own most of the contents it streams. Since Apple owns all its TV shows and I suppose it will all be exclusive to Apple TV plus, we'll probably the same content as in the US.

    Parang hindi pa sulit mag subscribe sa apple tv + unless you use there free subscription...

    For now imagine you will pay monthly of 249 for just less that a dozen shows...

    Hmm. I didn’t do any activation. I just opened my Apple TV and it was there. I supposed the system detected that I was using the same iTunes Account for my IPhone 11 Pro Max. You may want to check if you’re running the latest version of MacOS.

    Hmm. Yeah. Also there’s no full season per tv show. I can only 3–5 episodes per tv shows.

    If you have Apple Music student subscription, you also get access to Apple TV+ for free.

    in my case it showed up on the apple tv app it says "your new iphone includes one year of apple tv+" then there's a button to click that says "enjoy 1 year free"

    what i'm impressed with is that the shows i have tried appear to be streaming in dolby atmos, and my yamaha receiver accordingly displayed the "atmos" label in its output screen, nice to see dolby atmos becoming more and more popular... watching "see" series was a treat with dolby atmos

    I adore the first three episodes of the Morning Show.

    2016 LG OLED doesn’t have the AppleTV+ app.

    I wonder how the new NVIDIA Shield Pro will do.

    Watched See yesterday. Got blinded by the imagery and plot but still it was a blast. Not GoT blast but like, say, Bird Box. Never can get enough from 4k and dolby atmos (y)

    Just finished “See”. It breaks almost all hierarchies SJW keep yammering about and does this with visuals of Horizon Zero Dawn.

    If you’re conservative jut avoid. You might be scandalized to report it to MTRCB

    For All Mankind is good TV. Can't wait for the next episodes.

    Pleasantly surprised with Dickinson. Fun, witty and up-with-the-times.

    See lost me when they did that chant routine before their first battle.
