Another app bites the dust on older Apple TVs.
Just last week, Google confirmed that the YouTube app is no longer supported on third-generation Apple TVs from the beginning of March. It now appears that CBS All Access will also lose support on Apple’s older set-top per message displayed to third generation Apple TV users and reported by MacRumors. The change will take place at the same time as CBS All Access restarts as Paramount +.
Paramount + will be available on iPhone, iPad and newer Apple TV 4K and Apple TV HD boxes on March 4. The message obtained by MacRumors states that users at that time will be able to throw Paramount + content from an iOS device to their third-generation Apple TV or connected AirPlay 2 monitor – as will be the case with YouTube when the service disappears from the device next month. But it does not sound like the new service will be supported naturally on the older Apple TV.
We have contacted ViacomCBS representatives for more information on the loss of support, and will update this post if we hear back.
When Google came to the spokesperson for the change last week, a spokesman from Google told Gizmodo in a statement that the company “always works to ensure that our users get the best experience on YouTube, and from time to time we have to make changes to our supported devices. list. “
Losing support for a small number of apps is not a big reason to compete to buy a new device – unless you really, actually does not support the casting process from your mobile device. If so, I can respectfully suggest replacing Apple TV with Chromecast with Google TV? I recently made the switch and I highly recommend it.
