Microsoft has confirmed that the Apple TV app is coming to its Xbox consoles. More specifically, the app is launching on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on Nov 10.

In addition to Apple’s app, other popular streaming apps available for the Xbox Series X and Series S on launch day include Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Spotify, YouTube, YouTube TV, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, NBC Peacock, Vudu, FandangoNow, Twitch, Sky Go, NOW TV and Sky Ticket. These apps are already available on the Xbox One.

For those getting the PlayStation 5 instead, Sony has announced that the console is getting the app on its launch day too.

To recap, you can use this Apple TV app to access your existing iTunes library as well as buy or rent new movies and TV shows. It also integrates with Apple TV+, so you can watch Apple’s original shows and movies if you’ve a subscription. In Singapore, Apple TV+ is priced at S$6.98 per month after a free seven-day trial. It’s also part of Apple’s new Apple One services bundles, which are launching in Singapore later this year.
