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.
