Default Apple TV app coming to Roku starting today, October 15

The Apple TV app is finally being released for Roku devices today.

https://www.theverge.com/2019/10/15/...shows-features

Quote:
With Apple TV Plus set to arrive next month, Apple is making sure Roku owners will be ready to stream its original programming. Today, the Apple TV app is launching for Roku streaming players and Roku TVs.

The app will be available from Rokuís Channel Store when it goes live. Itís a free download, and customers will be able to directly subscribe to Apple TV Plus, which will cost $4.99 per month, from within the app starting on November 1st.

Aside from featuring Apple TV Plus content, the app also provides access to your iTunes video library. Optional Apple TV Channel subscriptions for HBO, Starz, and other premium networks are also accessible from the app. Like on other platforms, the Apple TV app provides personalized recommendations on what to stream from those channels.

The app should be available on most Roku products, but Roku warns that it ďwill not be supported by select older Roku models.Ē It can be downloaded in the following countries:

Argentina
Canada
Chile
Colombia
Costa Rica
El Salvador
France
Guatemala
Honduras
Mexico
Nicaragua
Panama
Peru
Republic of Ireland
United Kingdom
United States

Beyond access to Apple TV Plus, the app will also lets Roku owners rent or buy TV shows and movies from Apple's iTunes service, and provides a place to watch iTunes content they already purchased. In addition the app offers Apple TV Channels, services like HBO, Showtime and Starz that users can subscribe to and watch from within the TV app, without having to download those individual apps.

Apple says its TV app is coming to other devices, including the Amazon Fire TV platform as well as smart TVs from LG, Sony and Vizio, "in the future."

Roku's representative confirmed to CNET that Roku devices do not yet support Apple's AirPlay 2 standard, which allows users to control video and music using their iPhone, iPad or Mac devices. Samsung TVs, as well as smart TVs from Vizio, Sony and LG added AirPlay earlier this year.

As someone who hasn't gotten around to getting another Apple TV to go into their bedroom, this is welcome news to me, as it'll mean I will have the TV app on my Roku TV in my bedroom, which means having access to CBS and my TV show purchases.

A nice bit of welcome news this morning!

I'm pretty excited for this as I don't have an Apple TV but would like access to my iTunes library and the Apple TV+ content.

It's working.

Looks like no Dolby Vision support for Roku TVs.

Also there's no Menus or iTunes Extras.

So if a movie has multiple versions (Theatrical and Unrated cuts), it only plays the main version.

I was wondering if I was missing something because no matter what buttons I pushed on my remote I couldn't get any extras to show up. Hopefully they fix that soon.

Won't work on my Roku Streaming Stick either, 3800X is all it works on and I have 3600 lol Kind of dumb to only have it on the newest ones, that might hurt their initial launch subscriptions.

I was just going to watch some of the Carpool Karaoke episodes I never saw past season 1 for now... are those free or do you have to subscribe to something to be able to watch?

Same for me. I look forward to getting home and seeing if it does or not.

The Roku website says it's installed. We'll see...

It works fine on my Roku TV 55S517 (7118X) that I bought last year. But it doesn’t show up on my cheap 4-year old model.

I mainly just wanted to compare video quality. After looking at a sample of Winter Soldier in iTunes , I still find that prime video is the leader in video quality to my eyes.

I thought the app overall was ok and well designed, did not look to much into it.

I am on a 2017 Roku Ultra.

Picture Quality is great.

App refuses to let me sign on the Roku Ultra (2018) and Roku 3.

When I click on the "Sign In On Mobile" button, I immediately get this error:

Verification Failed
There were errors signing you in. Wait a moment, then try again.

I get the same error for "Create Apple ID" button (not that I need to do that, but I thought I'd try it).

Signing in directly doesn't work either, as it hangs on the "Signing in..." screen and never actually signs in.

Resetting and removing the app doesn't work. Restarting the Roku doesn't work.

I realize glitches are to be expected during the first day/week, but it's still frustrating!
