Know how you can use the TV App in iPhone and iPad

Apple’s TV app is designed to become the best app for all of your TV and movie watching needs on your iPhone/iPad. The app syncs all your entertainment activities all in one place so you don’t need to open different apps when looking for something to watch.

If you have Apple TV, it will bring the best watching experiences, but in case you don’t have an Apple TV, what can you do? Don’t worry; you can still take advantage of cool features of the TV apps on your iPhone or iPad. Here’s how to do.

How to use Watch Now in the TV app

The Watch Now feature of the TV app stores all of the shows you currently watch. If you start watching any show or movie from a service supporting the TV app, you will see them in the Watch Now tab at the very top of the page. When you finish an episode, the next available chapter will appear in your list. Just tap on the title you want to watch

If you find content you are watching is different from what the TV app suggests, just tap on the More button next to the play button to move to apps that don’t support the TV app, like Netflix.

How to use the Library in the TV app

An interesting thing on the TV app is that you can browse content by movies or TV shows, recently purchased, and genres from iTunes. When you are ready to watch, tap on the Play button to enjoy.

In case you want to download videos onto your device to watch it offline later, simply tap on the Download button. If you want to watch the downloaded videos, or TV shows, just move to the Downloaded section in the Library tab of the TV app.
