Thousands of Russian movies online will now be able to be streamed to Apple TV devices via Apple’s streaming video app.
The app allows users to search for movies and then select the type of movie they would like to watch.
Once the user has selected a movie, it will then be streamed in full screen.
“We are working on the next big release of our streaming movie service, which will be available in 2018,” a spokesperson for Apple told TechRadar.
“This is just the first step in our long journey to bring more movies to our devices and to enable the most immersive viewing experience for our users.”
The app is not currently available in the US or UK, but will be soon.
Users can now also stream movies from their Apple TV using a remote control, which is a bit like using a Chromecast to watch videos.
It’s not clear when the feature will be rolled out across the US, but the move to offer streaming movies to Apple TVs is a big step for the streaming video service.
Apple previously only supported Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in the Apple TV app.
Users in Russia are able to also access the streaming movie library through the app through an extension, and it seems that this will be the same in the country as well.
This is a good first step towards the future of streaming movies and tv shows in Russia, where Russian movies and TV shows are increasingly popular with the Russian population, as well as with US and UK consumers.
