It’s all about apps.
Apps are the future of television. Think about it. On your mobile devices and computers, you already use apps such as Netflix, Hulu, WatchESPN, and iTunes to watch TV shows. And that’s exactly where TV in the living room is headed. Apps have liberated television. They allow you to make individual choices about what you want to watch. And when and where you want to watch it. With Apple TV and its powerful tvOS, developers are creating experiences that will change what you expect from your big screen, making your TV feel as personal as your iPhone or iPad.
Apps and games on TV. It’s gonna be huge.
The App Store makes its TV debut. Think big, exciting games. Apps that turn your living room into a fitness studio or a classroom. Even multiperson experiences that redefine family game night. We can’t wait to see where developers take this.
The television finally gets some technology love.
With the advent of iPhone and iPad, many of the big innovations and newest technologies have focused on the small screens that fit in our pockets or that we carry in our hands. But it’s time our big screens share in that technology and get an equally innovative experience. With Apple TV and tvOS, a redesigned interface, and the Siri Remote, there’s never been a better time to be a TV.
Ask more of your television.
With all these new apps on your TV, what’s the best way to find something to watch? Just ask Siri. With the Siri Remote, you tell your TV exactly what you want to watch. Ask Siri to give you a few options, like “Show me popular TV shows.” Siri automatically searches across popular services like iTunes, Netflix, and more, so you don’t have to dig through each app individually. Ask to hear an album that just dropped, and Siri starts playing it from Apple Music.* You can even ask Siri to find or launch a specific app. The Siri Remote lets you focus on the entertainment.
So long endless button pushing. Hello swipe.
Touch forever changed how we interact with our phones. Now it comes to the remote. Use your thumb on the Touch surface of the Siri Remote to scroll, select, and navigate your TV screen effortlessly.
