Apple TV+ guide, review and testing on Android TV-Box, PC and Smart TV


Today we present our guide to use the Apple TV+ streaming service, which is gradually growing in catalog and with more options to watch it on multiple devices.

We can watch Apple TV+ content on all Apple devices, but also on Windows computers, many Smart TVs of different brands and also on some Android TV-Box with official support or not as we will see. For now this service has a very low price, and we can also share it with up to 6 users, although it is possible that in the future it will increase its cost and limit connections when it has a wider catalog.

To promote the Disney+ service at startup, we have a good outlet offer, as we can see in the list below we can share the account with 4 people without problems, also the quality has no limitation and you will be 4K HDR if our hardware supports it.

APPLE TV+ ON ANDROID TV-BOX

We can watch Apple TV+ on some Android TV devices, for now it seems that we can only install it on some specific models. In our reviews we always check if this app is compatible, so we recommend to check in each of them if it works or not concretely, and it seems that it is only compatible with devices with Android TV 10 certified at least.

Android TV-Box WITH official support

For now Apple TV+ only has official support for Chromecast with Google TV, so we can install it directly from Google Play Store, in the rest of non-official devices we will have to install the app manually using its APK.

Android TV-Box WITHOUT official support

The rest of Android TV-Box do not find the Apple TV+ app in Google Play, even so we can install it very easily.

  1. DOWNLOAD APK the latest version of the Apple TV+ app for Android TV
  2. This app only works on devices with Android TV operating system, not with classic Android Mobile.
  3. Copy APK file to a USB stick and connect it to the TV-Box.
  4. Install APK by running it from any installed file explorer or install Solid Explorer or X-Plore.
  5. Accept permissions for apps from unknown sources if asked.
  6. In the list of available apps we will already have the Apple TV+ icon.
