The Apple TV+ website updated Thursday its homepage interface that mirrors the design seen in the TV app when navigating to the Apple TV+ tab.
The upgrade is the first chance to the website’s user interface (UI) since the streamer’s November 2019 launch.
The website is generally used by people who wish to watch Apple TV+ content but do not own devices compatible with the TV app, such as Windows PCs and Android users.
It is also used by Macs owners who cannot update to macOS Catalina, and therefore do not have the native TV app option. Watching anything through tv.apple.com requires a credit card for “authorization.”
When the service was launched, the website was very basic and barebones in functionality. It featured a primitive scrolling list of all Apple TV+ content, making for an out-of-date web app that lacked any organization.
The new homepage features the same featured header seen on the Apple TV app, along with sections for the latest releases and genre categories.
However, table stakes features are still missing such as the ability to resume from where you left off, see your Up Next queue, or even a search bar.
