But of course, it is available only to the closed ecosystem of its customers who hold an Apple ID.
Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, Apple TV (3rd generation), iPod touch, Mac, newer Samsung Smart TVs and other devices like Amazon Fire TV, LG, Roku, Sony and VIZIO platforms are supposed to have native support for Apple TV+. And of course, you will be able to play on browsers (Chrome, Safari, and Firefox) at https://tv.apple.com/.
You will be able to subscribe to Apple TV+ only if you have a device with iOS 12.3 or later, tvOS 12.3 or later and macOS Catalina on it. The service has been launched in over 100 countries. It is priced quite low compared to its competitors which is part of its subscriber gather strategy. However, Apple’s focus is mostly on original videos and offers very little in terms of content.
