PlayStation Vue finally lands on Apple TV

The launch of the PS4 Pro, and before that the launch of the PS VR, will have most likely grabbed most of the attention as far as Sony’s entertainment products go.

At long last, Apple TV users will be able to kick back and enjoy PS Vue’s selection, or what’s left of it, from their couches. Without having to hold and stare at an iPad, of course.

Apple’s ‘TV’ app won’t have Netflix or Amazon Prime Video content

If you watched Apple's event yesterday, you probably noticed a certain popular video service was missing during the 'TV' app unveiling: Netflix.

Rather than jumping between a bunch of different video apps, the "TV" app does all the work for you, taking all the content you could ever want and making it more convenient than ever.
