Dish TV Service (Dish) is rolling out the first-ever television service that allows customers to stream live TV to their Apple TV devices.
The Dish TV app will launch today on the Apple TV 4 and Apple TV 5, Dish said on its blog, adding that it’s available for Apple TV owners across the U.S. and in select countries around the world.
Users can watch live TV, but it will come in two ways: by watching on-demand, or by downloading the service to their TV.
Dish said it will also begin allowing users to watch the service on the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
“We have a very simple way to watch live and on demand.
Just download it to your device and start watching,” Dish said in a blog post.
“We’ll let you know when it’s live on your device, and we’ll also let you choose what shows to watch.”
The service also includes a wide array of on-screen content, including a wide range of sports and news shows.
It includes original programming like “30 Rock” and “Modern Family,” and has been downloaded over 30 million times.
Dish also has original series like “Glee,” “NCIS: Los Angeles,” “The Voice,” “Jane the Virgin,” “Downton Abbey,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Grimm,” “Empire” and many others.
Dish said it plans to expand the service in coming weeks, with more original programming.
Dish will offer an extensive list of on demand services, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu Plus.
Dish TV will also be able to offer on-air content on the devices it sells, including podcasts, podcasts, video games and other content, according to the blog post, which noted that the service would be available on all devices and will be available “later this year.”
