“HBO, Amazon, Disney, NBC to Open 24-Hour Video Passages”
HBO, Amazon and NBC will open 24-hour video streams on Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV Stick and the Apple TV Classic, according to a new listing on the website of media streaming company The Hub.
The move is the latest in a trend that began last year with the introduction of Apple TV as a streaming device.
The new Apple TV streams content from Amazon and HBO, as well as shows like “Game of Thrones,” from HBO Go and Amazon Prime Video, according the listing.
It’s the first time the streaming service has expanded beyond HBO Go.
A new AppleTV streaming service was announced in April, but that service only had access to the most popular shows and films from Netflix.
That service was eventually shut down by the company.
“We are excited to launch the AppleTV App, which will be available in more than 100 countries and over 100 million users across the world,” said Chris Sorensen, Apple’s director of product management, in a statement.
“With more than 10 million video streams, the AppleApp is a great addition to the Apple ecosystem, which already includes our App Store and the App Store on Apple TVs and Apple TV devices.”
