Apple's revamped TV app provides one key benefit that you won't be able to get when subscribing to HBO separately: the ability to watch HBO content offline, including "Game of Thrones."The company launched the new version of its Apple TV app on Monday after announcing it in March alongside its Apple TV Plus original content service. The new app supports the ability to download content for offline viewing, a feature that other services like Netflix have long offered.Advertisement
But HBO's mobile offerings, HBO Go and HBO Now, do not allow subscribers to download shows and movies, according to the network's frequently asked questions pages. In a release announcing the launch, Apple called its app "the first and only place" where HBO subscribers would be able to download shows like "Game of Thrones."
Other than the ability to subscribe to channels like HBO and Starz and download content for offline viewing, Apple's revamped TV app brings a new design with deeper customization and a new tab for Kids content. The app is available for iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV on Monday through a software update, and is also rolling out to certain Samsung Smart TVs. Come fall, it will be available for Apple's Mac operating system as well.
