Apple TV+ is now available in the UK on Sky Q and Sky Glass.

As reported by our friends at TechRadar:

Sky has finally added the Apple TV Plus app to Sky Glass and Sky Q.Sky customers will now be able to access Apple TV Plus shows, including smash hits Ted Lasso and The Morning Show (via Sky's Homepage or Apps rail), on demand for £4.99 per month after a free seven-day trial.The move means Apple's burgeoning streaming service joins the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Prime Video and Spotify in the ever-expanding roster of entertainment apps available on Sky platforms.

Earlier this year Apple and Sky announced a new long-term agreement to bring Apple's original streaming content to its customers who have either a Sky Q box and subscription or Sky Glass.

As part of the deal, Sky Go is finally coming to the Apple TV in mid-2020. Right now, however, customers can download Apple TV+ content to watch on the Sky Go app on devices like the iPad and iPhone.

Apple TV+ can now be found in the menu on either Sky Q or Sky Glass, where you'll need to sign in using your Apple ID.

Various formats including HDR and 4K are available, with Ultra HD and HD requiring either a Sky Q 2TB or Sky Q 1TB UHD box and appropriate TV. As Sky notes the episodes are streamed, so can't be downloaded to watch later like other content available on Sky including its own original programming.
