  • Apple TV refers both to a device and app.
  • Apple TV+ is a video subscription service, similar to Netflix and Hulu, but with less content and a lower price.

  • Anyone with an iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, Windows PC, or select smart TV can access Apple TV channels.

What Are Apple TV Channels?

Apple TV Channels are low-cost streaming channels offered within the Apple TV app. You don’t need an Apple TV device to access Apple TV Channels. You can also enjoy these streaming content providers with your iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows PC, smart TV, Android device, or streaming stick. Apple has come a long way, baby!

By providing channels within the Apple TV app, content providers reduce costs, which they pass on to consumers. Since Apple is hosting their content and creating most of the application, companies like Starz, Showtime, and Cinemax save on software development and hosting costs.

In theory, they can pass these savings on to consumers. This is why you see many Apple TV channels offered as low as $2.99 per month. If they had to develop their own app and host the content themselves, they’d likely charge a higher fee or not offer the service at all.

The consumer also benefits from Apple TV channels. Most of your content lives in the Apple TV app, with few exceptions. Whatever device you use, as long as you log in with your Apple ID, you’ll be able to access your Apple TV Channels.

We’ve ordered the following list of Apple TV Channels by cost. This list is constantly updated as Apple adds new channels and prices change.
