Apple notes that Apple TV will be the "first and only place" where HBO subscribers can download movies and shows such as the about-to-conclude Game of Thrones.

Initially, the app will be available on Apple devices plus 2019 Samsung Electronics Co Ltd smart TVs and some 2018 models.

Apple has also announced that the Apple TV's new app will be coming to Samsung, Vizio, LG, and Sony TVs.
