Apple is taking its TV app everywhere. It is present in Smart TVs, Fire TV and Roku sets, in addition to being in almost all Apple devices: iPhone, iPad, Mac and of course the Apple TV receiver.
But there is a site through which services can be accessed at streaming in which Apple is not yet present: game consoles. If the recent reports are true, this could change soon.
Several posts have echoed a limited testing pool for Xbox, as evidenced by Twitter user @Tzunami_Sapp.

But it’s not just Xbox users who would get Apple’s attention. The publication 9to5Mac reports that the app will also arrive on PlayStation consoles.
The TV app on external devices will give you access to your series and movies purchased and rented through iTunes, as well as Apple TV channels (including Apple TV +). But it does not offer content from other apps such as Hulu or Amazon Prime unless you use an Apple device, such as Apple TV or iPhone, that have the app installed.
