The new revamped Apple TV app is launching today

Apple's redesigned TV app which will be home to the TV+ service is launching now for Apple TV iOS and Samsung SmartTVs

The new Apple TV app also has a new Kid section.

Also starting from today, with AirPlay 2-enabled Samsung Smart TVs, customers can effortlessly play videos and other content from their iPhone, iPad or Mac directly to their Samsung Smart TV.

Along with making it easier to view a swathe of shows and movies, the Apple TV app will also help you find more of the things you like with personalised and curated recommendations of shows and movies from more than 150 video apps and streaming services.

In the release documentation, Apple notes that Apple Channels subscriptions can be shared with "up to six family members, with no new apps, accounts, or passwords needed". AirPlay 2 and HomeKit functionality will arrive for certain Vizio, LG and Sony smart TVs later this year. This includes fixing an issue that prevents the Apple TV Remote from responding on supported receivers as well as dropped call problems with WiFi calling. Apple has been working with some of the biggest TV manufacturers to expand the footprint of its new TV app.

Credit: Tom's GuideThe new software update includes Apple Channels, the á la carte subscription service that challenges Amazon Channels, and rolls existing content from the iTunes Store into Apple's TV app. That latter improvement doesn't address any of our suggestions in "Four Ways Apple Could Improve Apple Music" (11 March 2019) but it should make the For You suggestions more useful.

iOS 12.3 is also available for the HomePod, where it adds support for joining some types of enterprise networks that require unique credentials. You can resubscribe to a channel anytime through the TV app.

Tap the channel you want. See this discussion in TidBITS Talk for more details. You'll need to install a firmware update to get your hands on it.

watchOS 5.2.1 is out too and it expands support for the ECG feature and irregular heart beat notifications to Poland, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Croatia, and Iceland.
