Apple TV+ Coming to Comcast and Sky Devices [Updated]

Apple TV+ will be coming to Comcast devices, expanding the range of devices that Apple's streaming service is available on and expanding its audience to even more customers, Comcast's CEO announced today during the company's earnings call.

The news was broken by Comcast CEO Brian Roberts, who said during the company's quarterly earnings call that Apple and Comcast have agreed on a deal that will see ‌Apple TV+‌ come to Comcast devices and Comcast's own Xfinity Stream app come to the Apple TV.


With the ‌Apple TV+‌ app, Comcast devices will soon be capable of tapping into Apple's growing library of original shows and movies, such as the Emmy-award-winning "Ted Lasso" and "The Morning Show." When exactly the ‌Apple TV+‌ app will be available on Comcast devices remains unknown, and we'll update this article when we have more information.

Update: British TV provider Sky today announced that ‌Apple TV+‌ will be available on its Sky Glass and Sky Q devices later this year. Sky customers in the UK will also be able to access Sky Go on the ‌Apple TV‌ starting in mid-2022.

According to this the Sky apps are coming to Apple Tv

omg thank you for surfacing that article for me!

Sky Go app on tv – this sounds extremely promising!

(Once this happens, just need Netflix to relent and allow their content to appear in 'Up Next'.)

This is good news, although, I'm also wondering if this change in business relationship between the two companies means we'll see a Single Sign-On option for Comcast/Xfinity on the Apple TV in the near future as well.

I am getting HD output through the Stream app on my Roku. Picture looks great. I wish the interface were better, and the Roku loaded faster, but he image quality looks good on my end once things get going.
My brother has TiVo as his cable box. For that reason, he can't use the Xfinity app on Roku. So you must have the X1 box, even if you don't use it.
The Xfinity app is slow on Roku because of Xfinity. I use the Xfinity app on my tablet as a TV guide and it is very slow.

Bad of MacRumors to omit the related news about Comcast saying the Apple TV app will be coming to Sky Q boxes in the UK.

But what I'd really love is a Sky/Sky Q app for tvOS, as it would enable me to drop the subscription I pay to have a Sky Q mini box on a second TV so I can access my Sky channels there.
