Sky’s subsequent replace brings lots of of unique exhibits and flicks to Sky Q and Sky Glass
Sky has confirmed plans to bring Apple TV + to its Sky Q and Sky Glass platforms in the coming weeks. TV + continues to be one of the biggest absentee from Sky Q and Sky Glass, which has support for Netflix, Disney +, BBC iPlayer, All4, and Prime Video. But that should change.
Sky has announced that its upcoming Apple TV + app, which will be available to all customers before the end of the year, will be deeply integrated into its software. Viewers can browse Sky’s and Apple’s on-demand catalogs at the same time – so you don’t have to buy anything from the Sky Store that is included in TV + ‘s monthly subscription. The same integration is already available on Sky Q with Netflix and Disney +. With Sky Glass, the search function has been massively improved – Sky can automatically retrieve paired on-demand providers as part of its new, charged Series Link function called Playlist.
Arguably the most popular show on TV + is Ted Lasso, which features Jason Sudeikis as an American college football coach who is hired to coach an English football team. The series, which was recently renewed for its third season, was nominated for a ridiculous 20 Primetime Emmy Awards. Another much-discussed Apple TV + show is The Morning Show, which features Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, and Steve Carell as presenters on a popular breakfast newscast embroiled in a sexual misconduct scandal.
Award-winning documentaries such as Boys State and animated films such as Wolfwalkers round off the catalog, as do Slow Horses with Academy Award winner Gary Oldman, The Essex Serpent with Claire Danes and Tom Hiddleston and the Science Fiction Epos Foundation.
Dana Strong, Group Chief Executive, Sky said, “With Apple TV +, our customers can now enjoy phenomenal shows like The Morning Show, Trying and Ted Lasso along with our own award-winning Sky Originals and the best content and apps from our partners, all on Sky Glass, the streaming TV from Sky, or Sky Q, our market-leading Sky-Box. “
Interestingly, the launch of Apple TV + on Sky Q and Sky Glass marks a much deeper partnership between the iPhone maker and the satellite company. In addition to rolling out TV + on its television hardware, Sky Go will be available for the first time on Apple TV’s set-top boxes next year. Customers who pay extra for Sky Go support, which allows viewers to take their recordings on the go with smartphone and tablet apps, can now sign up to watch live channels, on-demand shows and films from an Apple TV HD or watch Apple TV 4K box.
In addition, Sky-owned NOW offers viewers the option to purchase any NOW membership through the iPhone, Apple TV or iPad app. According to Sky, this will “enable a seamless shopping experience that provides access to the latest movies, critically acclaimed shows and the greatest live sports including the new season of Sky Atlantics’ epic sequel”.
Apple TV + is also available in the Apple TV app, which is pre-installed on iPhones, iPad and Mac gadgets, as well as popular smart TVs from Samsung, LG, Sony, VIZIO, TCL and other, Roku and Amazon Fire TV devices , Chromecast with game consoles from Google TV, PlayStation and Xbox as well as at tv.apple.com.
