Customers around the world can now subscribe to Apple TV channels within the Apple TV app — paying for only the ones they want — and watch on demand directly in the app, with the free iOS 12.3 and tvOS 12.3 software update,
Through Family Sharing, up to six family members can share subscriptions to Apple TV channels using just their Apple ID and password. Subscribers can watch and download shows and movies both online and offline, making the Apple TV app the first and only place where HBO subscribers can download movies and shows such as “Game of Thrones” for offline viewing.

According to Apple, the app includes the largest collection of 4K HDR titles available to browse, buy or rent — all within the new Apple TV app. The Watch Now section features Up Next, where users can quickly find and watch their favourites with activity synced across devices, as well as explore curated collections based on a secure and comprehensive understanding of users’ viewing interests.
There is also a dedicated Kids section, which showcases editorially handpicked shows and movies for kids of all ages. The Sports section makes it easy to find games and receive notifications about favourite teams and leagues. Additionally, customers can find their purchased movies and shows from iTunes in the redesigned Library tab, now organised by Recently Added, Downloaded, Genres and more.
