Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Engadget.com: “The Apple TV app is coming to PS4 and PS5”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Apple TV app has rolled out to seemingly every platform except consoles, but even that is changing today. Sony has revealed the PlayStation 5’s initial media apps, and Apple TV one of them. Like on other platforms, you can watch Apple TV+ shows like Ted Lasso, sign up for premium channels and buy or rent movies and shows. The app is coming to the PS4, as well, so you won’t have to buy a new system.

Windows Central recently found evidence of the Apple TV app coming to Xbox consoles as well, so don’t be surprised if there’s matching news on that front as well.

This won’t be the option, of course. Sony added that Disney+, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch and YouTube will also be available on the PS5 from the outset. Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, MyCanal and Peacock will be available for the new machine in the future.

Sony also shed some light on the PS5’s Media Remote. Those four previously blank buttons near the bottom? They’re shortcut buttons for Disney+, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube. That won’t thrill you if your favorite isn’t present, but it should make the remote considerably more attractive if you hate the thought of browsing videos with a gamepad.

The Media Remote costs $30 and is listed at Amazon, Best Buy and Gamestop in addition to Sony’s own store, although you may have trouble pre-ordering the device as we write this.
