Apple continues to expand its reach into the world of streaming with its latest integration on the DirecTV Stream device, a standalone streaming box from cable provider DirecTV. As of today, users of the DirecTV Stream can access the Apple TV app, allowing them to stream video content and access a range of features.
The Apple TV app is now available to DirecTV Stream users, providing them with a seamless streaming experience. Users can sign in with their Apple ID, granting them access to a range of content including Apple TV+, MLS Season Pass, Apple TV Channels, and the ability to buy and rent from the iTunes Store.
This move marks the latest expansion of the Apple TV app’s availability, as the company continues to push its presence onto more screens beyond its own hardware. The DirecTV Stream version of the Apple TV app supports all of the usual TV app features, including video streaming up to 4K HDR quality, with Dolby Atmos.
For those who already have an Apple ID, simply sign-in on the DirecTV Stream device to access all your purchased library content and subscriptions. This makes it easier than ever for Apple users to access their favorite content, all in one place.
The expansion to DirecTV Stream joins earlier launches on Comcast Xfinity Stream, PlayStation, Xbox, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, Android smart TVs, and more. This shows Apple’s commitment to expanding its reach and providing users with a seamless experience, regardless of what platform they choose to use.
Furthermore, a native Apple TV app for Windows PCs is currently in beta, indicating that the company is keen to ensure that its content is accessible across a wide range of devices and platforms.
