The refreshed Apple TV app allows for different ways to discover and watch video content across iOS devices. The TV app will allow users to subscribe to services they want and watch content both on and offline, as well as purchase or rent films and TV shows on iTunes.

You’ll also be able to watch content that’s tailored to you, thanks to the new ‘For You’ section which suggests further content for the user to watch based on their personal watching history. Those recommendations will be pulled from content in over 150 streaming apps.

The new Channels section will offer users an avenue to subscribe to Apple TV channels à la carte and watch them via the Apple TV app, “with no additional apps, accounts or passwords required”. In the UK we’d wager Starz, Mubi and BritBox will available once it goes live, with more options to follow in the coming months.

The Apple TV app will be the place to go to for Apple TV Plus, the Cupertino firm’s new video subscription service. Apple announced the service is set to go live in the autumn, and that will be where you can watch all the original films and TV shows Apple is producing as it takes on the likes of Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.
