Apple TV Adds Movie Streaming and TV Service Watchever in Germany
According to The Next Web, Apple has added yet another service to its Apple TV device, a movie streaming and TV service called Watchever. Watchever is a Hulu Plus type streaming service that requires a subscription and allows users to log into the application on their Apple TV and stream movies and TV shows on their HD televisions. The service costs €8.99 a month and carries both international and local television series and movies.
Key features include the ability to choose between a German dubbed version of international movies, or the original. There is also a personal recommendation algorithm à la Netflix.
Apple has also updated its second and third generation Apple TV support page which shows all of the services currently available for use on the device. Watchever is the latest addition and mentions Germany on the bottom to note that it is only available in that country. Watchever announced during its launch that it would be compatible with the Apple TV and has now officially released it.
With more services being added to the Apple TV, the Cupertino company is continuously building relationships with different companies that may also hash out deals if Apple was to release a television set in the near future.
