A week with Apple TV
Get more from your TV time with this guide.
How you watch TV has changed. Your Apple TV allows you to watch movies, series, sports and news from all the top streaming services and organises your viewing to make sure you never miss an episode of your favourite show.
You can also play your favourite iPad and iPhone games on your Apple TV using the included Siri Remote, or your iPhone – they both have advanced motion sensors.
And this is just the start, with so much more to explore. Any compatible apps that you have already bought on your iPhone are free to download again on Apple TV. So, get to know all the functions of your favourite TV apps, and find some new ones in this guide, with an app for each day of this week.
Day 1: Apple TV App
The Apple TV App organises all your viewing. You’ll see the next available episodes of the shows you’re watching in your Up Next section as well as content suggestions under What to Watch. Your iTunes library is right there too, with any movies you purchased in HD automatically upgraded to 4K resolution for free (where it is available). The Apple TV App is also on your iPhone or iPad, so you can continue watching on the go.

Day 2: Prime Video
If you’re already an Amazon Prime deliveries user, then you also have access to movies and hit TV series at no extra charge through Prime Video. This includes Prime Originals content such as The Man in the High Castle and Sneaky Pete. Prime Video also has a host of genre-specific channels to which you can subscribe, for an additional fee, such as fitness channel Daily Burn.

Day 4: Neverthink
Neverthink brings back the days of mindless channel-surfing, for when you want to watch without thinking too much. Flick between buzzily-named channels from YOLO to Making Stuff to find all sorts of internet video content. New clips are added daily. Like the TV of yesteryear, programmes play live, rather than on-demand.

With any game available on Apple TV, you can save and pick up again on your iPhone from where you left off. With this well-loved and vibrant platform game you can use your Siri Remote to run, climb and jump your way through the mysterious lands of the game.
Run, explore and collect!
Day 6: Tinder
The perfect way to give your friends and family a veto on your love life, using dating app Tinder on Apple TV allows you to bring up potential matches on the big screen. You can swipe right or left just as you would on your iPhone, by using the Apple TV remote, and view all your potential romances in full HD.
Match, Chat & Meet New People
