Windows 11 Apple TV app
  • To install the Apple TV app on Windows 11, open the app page in the Microsoft Store, and click on “Install.” 
  • Or open Command Prompt (admin) and run the “winget install –id 9NM4T8B9JQZ1” command.

On Windows 11, you can now install the Apple TV app, which is now available as a preview. The video streaming app provides the same design and features as the variant for macOS, including access to the Apple TV+ service, movies, and more. You can also buy or rent new and popular movies. Furthermore, through the premium channels, you can access Paramount+, AMC+, Showtime, Starz, and other services.

Since this is a preview of the TV app not all features may work as expected. After installing the Apple TV app, the iTunes app will no longer open, and audiobooks or podcasts on your computer will be inaccessible until Apple releases a compatible version of iTunes.

If you want to revert back to iTunes, you will have to uninstall this version of the Apple TV app. Also, to sync media to Apple devices you will need to install the Apple Devices app.
