Availability for services is important. It’s how any service picks up customers. Which is why it’s equally important for even a company like Apple to reach beyond its walled garden. And, indeed, Apple TV+ is available across devices and platforms, with one more big new addition in the works.
During today’s early morning earnings call for Comcast, the company’s CEO, Brian Roberts, confirmed that the company has struck a deal with Apple in a two-way deal. Moving forward, Apple TV+ will be made available on Comcast services and devices. And, on the other side of the coin, Comcast’s Xfinity Stream app is coming soon to the Apple TV set-top box.

The good news is more availability for Apple TV+, which includes hit series like Ted Lasso and Foundation, and movies like Palmer and a range of different documentaries. The “bad” news is that we don’t know when Apple TV+ will actually arrive on Comcast’s devices just yet. The news initially broke this morning, giving a sign of the future, but doesn’t lay things out in perfect detail, unfortunately.
As soon as we know more, though, we’ll be sure to pass it along.
