Apple TV adds PLUS7 app

The fourth generation Apple TV now supports Channel 7’s PLUS7 streaming service.

Channel 7’s streaming service PLUS7 joins SBS On Demand and Tenplay in offering dedicated apps for the fourth-generation Apple TV.

Channel 7 is the second broadcaster to launch a fourth generation specific app after SBS launched its On Demand app last week. Channel Ten’s Tenplay service is also available as an Apple TV app, but it’s a port of the older third generation code, so the interface doesn't match the fourth generation design style, which radically changed the basic Apple TV interface. That means it works OK, but will feel a bit strange compared to other apps on the Apple TV box.

The Apple TV doesn't have app support for every Australian free-to-air channel yet. If your tastes run more towards ABC’s iView or Channel 9’s 9Jumpin content, you’ll have to make do with using the existing iOS apps on your iPhone or iPad and streaming them to the Apple TV via Airplay instead. That's also the case if you've got an older generation Apple TV for most of the free-to-air catch up TV services.

Check out our full review of the latest Apple TV for more details on how the device works. It was announced back in September.

      Hi Norman,

      Thanks for your inquiry,

      Fox Sports can actually be seen on Foxtel Play – that is $50 for 1 month on direct debit based on a single Genre Pick plus the Sports Pick. Among the internet streaming service providers, Foxtel airs different live sports from around the world.

      Cheers,
      May
