Apple is launching the application Apple TV for the Fire TV Stick: the novelty allows owners of Amazon’s streaming device to be able to watch content purchased from the iTunes Store, view channels subscribed by the platform, and access the streaming service Apple TV +, which arrives on November 1.
This will be one of the cheapest ways to access Apple TV + streaming on a TV (if it doesn’t already have a dedicated app). Amazon sells the Fire TV Stick for R $ 289: this is the basic version, without 4K HDR support. Compare that to the cheaper Apple TV model, which costs R $ 1,099 and also doesn’t offer 4K resolution. (The Fire TV Stick 4K was approved by Anatel, but has not yet launched in Brazil.)
To access the novelty, just search for Apple TV on Amazon Appstore or ask the Alexa virtual assistant for help. The application requires Android 5.0 or higher and weighs only 20.8 MB. It would be nice if the company also put the app on the Play Store before the launch of Apple TV +.
Apple’s entry into the streaming world affected the company’s strategy, which started to support other platforms: TVs from Samsung and Sony have already received the Apple TV app, while recent models from LG have AirPlay support. The same thing happened with Apple Music, when the company first made a service available for the Android platform.
Apple TV + will be launched initially with exclusive content and will cost R $ 9.90, and can be shared with up to six people through Family Sharing.
