How to Subscribe to Apple TV Channels Using the Apple TV App


Apple’s official TV app is designed to bring together all the ways to watch TV on your device in one app. The idea behind it is that you can subscribe only to the channels you want, without downloading apps, and then watch the content on demand and on all your devices.

In other words, you don’t need a subscription to Apple TV+, Apple’s TV streaming service, to be able to use the Apple TV app. Instead, the app lists all TV shows and movies from all other streaming service apps on your device and lets you access them from the same interface.

Not only that, the ‌Apple TV‌ app also hosts “‌Apple TV‌ Channels”, a section that allows you to subscribe and watch individual services such as HBO, Starz, SHOWTIME and EPIX, directly from the interface of the TV app.

It’s important to note that a paid ‌Apple TV+‌ subscription does not give you access to content listed in the ‌Apple TV‌ Channels section of the TV app. Channels are completely separate from ‌‌Apple TV‌‌+, which only refers to Apple’s own channel (also listed in the Channels section).

The following steps show you how to find ‌Apple TV‌ channels, subscribe to them, or start a free trial. Note that the availability of certain trials may vary by country and region.
