Apple’s Apple TV streaming app is now available for Nvidia Shield users after getting Google Chromecast support earlier this year, with a promise to become available on additional Android TV devices later in the year.
Nvidia says Shield TV users will be able to watch Apple TV content with Dolby Vision — “a combination that offers beautiful 4K HDR picture quality with remarkable colors, sharper contrasts and incredible brightness. Dolby Atmos is also supported, unlocking richer and more immersive sound. Together, they deliver the best possible cinematic experience.”
With the Apple TV app, Nvidia Shield users can watch Apple TV+ originals including Ted Lasso, The Morning Show, For All Mankind, and Servant. Users can also subscribe to other streaming services like MC+, Paramount+ and Starz through Apple TV channels. With Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using their personal Apple ID and password.
Nvidia Shield support comes just in time for the premiere of the second season of the Apple TV+ hit Ted Lasso on July 23.
