Originally an article that centred on Apple TV Plus coming to Xbox consoles, the article was updated to include the fact that Apple is also apparently working to bring its Apple TV to PlayStation consoles, too.
9to5Mac has learned that Apple is also working with Sony to bring the Apple TV app to PlayStation consoles. Our anonymous source also believes HomeKit support could arrive at some point but that feature may not launch at the same time as the Apple TV app.
As such, it looks like that we likely won’t have to wait very long to get the Apple TV Plus app on our PS4 and PS5 consoles.
What Is Apple TV Plus?
Apple TV Plus is a streaming service from Cupertino tech giant Apple that aims to deliver a raft of original TV shows and movies that you cannot get elsewhere. It delivers this content through the Apple TV Plus app, which as of right now, is only available on Apple produced devices.
In short, there’s going to be a large selection of new TV shows and movies on the platform with a big old bank account behind them. You can catch a list of the currently announced movies and TV shows for Apple TV Plus below:
- Amazing Stories
- Are You Sleeping?
- Central Park
- Defending Jacob
- For All Mankind
- Little America
- Little Voice
- Magic Hour
- Masters of the Air

How Much Does Apple TV Plus Cost?
