Google TV gives users with subscriptions to Apple TV+ the ability to tune into award-winning original shows, movies and documentaries from the world's most creative storytellers. You can enjoy Apple Originals, including series like "Ted Lasso," which was recently nominated for two Golden Globes, "For All Mankind" season two debuting tomorrow, "The Morning Show" and "Servant," as well as movies like "Greyhound" and "Palmer." The Apple TV app also gives you access to your library of movie and TV show purchases from Apple, as well as personalized and curated recommendations and Apple TV channels. And with Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV+ and Apple TV channels.

Google also confirmed that the Apple TV app will also be available on Android TVs from the likes of Sony and TCL. There's no firm date for that, but the company says we can expect it "in the coming months."

New Apple TV+ customers can take advantage of a free 7-day trial after which the service costs $4.99 per month. That's unless you take advantage of the Apple One subscription bundle, of course.
