How to Watch Apple TV+ on Roku, Firestick, Android TV, and Chromecast

Apple TV+ is Apple's latest media streaming service that offers original content like “The Morning Show,” “SEE,” “Dickinson,” “For All Mankind,” and more. While it comes bundled with every Apple product purchased after September 10, you can still subscribe for $4.99 if you don't own any Apple devices.

Apple officially supports Apple TV+ on all Apple devices, Roku, Firestick, and a few Samsung and Sony Smart TVs. However, you can still watch Apple TV+ on other streaming devices like Chromecast, Android TV, and other smart TVs. Here's how you can do it:

1. Any computer

Did you know that Apple TV+ has a web interface like Netflix and Amazon Prime? Simply open the Apple TV+ website on any web browser, log in with your Apple ID, and start browsing and watching on Windows and Linux. If you're on a Mac, it will redirect you to the Apple TV app. The streaming quality is automatically adjusted, and the controls are similar to the app.

2. Android Smartphone

While there is no Apple TV app for Android, you can still use the web browser. Just like Windows computers, the web interface of Apple TV+ supports mobile web browsers, allowing you to watch Apple TV+ on any Android smartphone. Open the Apple TV+ website on your mobile browser, log in with your Apple ID, and you'll get a web interface optimized for the mobile screen. Enjoy!

3. Chromecast

If you own a Chromecast, you can cast Apple TV+ shows using the Chrome browser on your computer. Simply log into the Apple TV+ website on your Chrome browser, play a show, right-click anywhere on the video player, click “Cast,” and select your Chromecast from the list. However, note that you will have to control the playback on your TV using the browser on your computer.

4. Firestick

The Apple TV app is officially available for Firestick. You can download it from the Amazon App Store. Simply search for Apple TV and install the app. Log in with your credentials, and you're all set. As of now, it’s available in the US, Canada, UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and India. Apple promises to make the app available in more countries soon.

5. Roku

Firestick and Roku are the only third-party media streaming players that officially support Apple TV+. If you own a Roku device or can get your hands on one, you can watch Apple TV+. Simply press the Home button on the Roku remote, scroll to find and open the Channel Store, select Search Channels, and look for Apple TV. Log in, and enjoy Apple TV+ on Roku.

6. Smart TV

Samsung Smart TV has its own TV OS (Tizen OS) and officially supports Apple TV. You can go to the App Store on the TV, install Apple TV, log in, and enjoy your favorite shows on your Smart TV.

7. Android TV

While there is no easy way to get the Apple TV app on Android TV, there is a workaround. Sideload Chrome or Firefox to your Android TV using the steps mentioned in this guide. After that, you should be able to open the Apple TV+ website on your Android TV. If navigation is an issue, you can connect a USB or Bluetooth mouse or sideload the Mouse Toggle app to use the Chrome browser with just the remote. Log in and enjoy Apple TV+ on your Android TV.

These are the various devices on which you can watch Apple TV+ without an Apple device. While there is no official support for Chromecast and gaming consoles as of now, you can opt for a cheap streaming stick like Firestick or Roku. The interface is consistent across all the devices tested, and there are rarely any issues. The lack of official support may be resolved in the future.
