We reported yesterday that Netflix is no longer going to be supported on certain Roku devices starting December 2020. However, today we have some good news to share with Roku fans who enjoy streaming movies and TV shows. Roku has announced that the Apple TV app is now available to download and install directly from the Roku Chanel Store.
Therefore, Roku fans can now subscribe to Apple TV and watch more than 100,000 movies and TV shows that they couldn’t access before. To make things even better, Apple users can also access content that they have purchased and saved in their iTunes library.
