As part of a deal announced earlier this year with parent company Comcast, Sky satellite TV customers will soon have access to the Apple TV+ app through their Sky Q set-top box.

The app is beginning to roll out to Sky Q customers today, and will be available on Sky Glass TVs in a few weeks. It joins competing streaming services like Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime already featured on the Sky platform. Sky Go will arrive as an app on Apple TV next year.

The app experience on Sky is the version of the TV app that is stripped down to only offer TV+ originals, as we have previously seen appear on older Samsung and LG smart TVs. This means customers can stream Apple TV+ shows and movies, but access to other Apple TV Channels or iTunes Store content is not possible.

As part of Apple and Comcast’s agreement, Apple TV+ will also soon be available on Xfinity in the United States.
