With Apple TV Plus set to arrive next month, Apple is making sure Roku owners will be ready to stream its original programming. Today, the Apple TV app is launching for Roku streaming players and Roku TVs.
The app will be available from Roku’s Channel Store when it goes live. It’s a free download, and customers will be able to directly subscribe to Apple TV Plus, which will cost $4.99 per month, from within the app starting on November 1st.
Aside from featuring Apple TV Plus content, the app also provides access to your iTunes video library. Optional Apple TV Channel subscriptions for HBO, Starz, and other premium networks are also accessible from the app. Like on other platforms, the Apple TV app provides personalized recommendations on what to stream from those channels.
The app should be available on most Roku products, but Roku warns that it “will not be supported by select older Roku models.” It can be downloaded in the following countries:
