When the PlayStation 5 launches on November 12th, you’ll be able to access the most popular streaming services through the console, including Disney Plus, Netflix, Spotify, Twitch and YouTube. Sony recently announced that the launch of the Apple TV app is planned for most of the 2019 and 2020 models of Android TV. So it’s no wonder that you can also use the software on the PlayStation 5. In the future, according to Sony, you can also access Amazon Prime Video, MyCanal, Hulu and NBC’s Peacock.

As on other platforms, the Apple TV app for PS5 lets you watch Apple TV Plus originals, subscribe to premium TV channels, and buy and rent shows and films. If you don’t want to buy a PS5 at start up, don’t worry. Sony says the software will soon be available on the PS4 as well.
Sony also took a fresh look at the PS5’s Media Remote. Like the remote that comes with the updated Chromecast, it includes special shortcuts to Disney Plus, Netflix, Spotify and YouTube, as well as the usual selection of play buttons and a generous D-pad for navigation.
All in all, they’ll be a great choice when it comes to streaming options on the PS5. This is by no means a bad thing, but it can be difficult to know which ones are worth your time and money.
