For Sky TV owners, the wait for Apple TV+ is over. Sky and Apple have announced today that the streaming platform is now rolling out to Sky Q and the newly launched Sky Glass.
Here’s what we know. You can also read our full
Sky Glass review.
How to get Apple TV+ on Sky Q and Sky Glass
Apple TV+ is now rolling out on both Sky Q and Sky Glass. The app is available on Sky’s Homepage and the Apps rail, and shows on the platform will appear in the Top Picks section.
What is Apple TV+?
Apple TV+ features some critically acclaimed shows, including the Emmy-sweeping sitcom Ted Lasso, and the gripping drama, The Morning Show. The streaming service joins apps such as Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video.
Accounts cost £4.99 per month on a rolling contract, but new customers can get a seven-day free trial.
In addition, if you purchase an Apple product (such as the
iPhone 13), you may be entitled to an even longer free trial.
Sky Go and Now memberships come to Apple devices
Sky also confirmed that in the first half of 2022, users with Apple TV devices will be able to download
Sky Go. This is the app for existing Sky TV customers which will allow them to watch content on other devices besides the telly.
In addition, memberships for the Sky-owned flexible streaming service Now can also be bought on Apple devices (both with iOS and tvOS) via Apple’s in-app purchase – perfect for people who want all their subscriptions in one place.
Now offers monthly-rolling memberships for entertainment, cinema and sport that can be cancelled at any time. It’s the only place in the UK where you can watch the
Friends Reunion special and the
Justice League Snyder Cut.
All this news comes after Sky launched its first TV in the UK,
Sky Glass, which is currently
rolling out orders to customers across the country.
