With the launch of iOS 12.3 the new Apple TV app has arrived. Built into Apple TV is a new feature called Apple Channels. This service allows iOS and Apple TV users to subscribe to premium channels à la carte. Offerings include Showtime, HBO, CBS All Access and more.
You can stream the audio from a movie or television show you're watching on your Apple TV to your HomePod or AirPlay 2-compatible speakers for a better home viewing experience. First, you must make sure your devices meet the requirements for using AirPlay, then you must assign your AirPlay 2-compatible speakers to a room using the Home app.
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners can now download and install the iOS 12.3 update. Highlights include support for AirPlay 2-enabled TVs and a brand new Apple TV app. The Apple TV app was front and center at the company's March show time event. Apple will launch its streaming service, Apple TV+ alongside Apple channels in the fall.

For a faster solution, there's a quick and easy way to restart the Apple TV without even looking at the screen.
