Apple wants its TV app to be your home base for all of your video streaming services, and while it has yet to integrate with Netflix or Prime Video, it has done a decent job collecting smaller subscription services into one place. With the latest iOS update (13.4) it has added settings to let you control how much bandwidth it uses if and when it uses your cellular connection.
Apple TV App
The "Up Next" section of the Apple TV app is a useful feature that helps you keep track of what shows you are watching and where you are in each show. So if you've been watching 20 different shows across Apple TV+, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and Disney+, you should be able to see at a glance that you are on episode 5 of The Mandalorian and season 2 episode 8 of The Handmaid's Tale and so on.
One of the best features of Apple TV Channels is the ability to watch content offline. Your favorite shows and movies can be downloaded and viewed without a cellular data or Wi-Fi connection. The only drawback is that keeping a library of videos on your device takes up storage space.
Now that Apple TV Channels are here, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners can explore a variety of premium channels right through the Apple TV app. Many channels offer a free trial, which automatically rolls over into a monthly paid subscription. Whether you've decided not to keep an Apple TV Channel past the free trial, or you wish to end an ongoing monthly subscription, Apple TV Channels can easily be cancelled right from the Apple TV app.
Fans who have been looking for a way to catch up on Game of Thrones and other HBO content without draining a data plan are finally in luck. The revamped Apple TV app has launched, and the only place where HBO content can be legally downloaded for viewing offline is through Apple TV Channels in this app.
