Apple TV is expanding its television offerings by joining forces with offerings from CBS and NBC. Multichannel News reports deals between the Apple service and both CBS All Access and the NBC App.

“CBS All Access, which costs $5.99 per month, offers thousands of shows on demand and streams live feeds in more than 100 markets. CBS said it’s offering a free week-long trial to the service via Apple TV; current subscribers can sign in with their normal credentials,” the publication reports.

NBC, meanwhile, has confirmed plans to expand access to its app to Apple TV, as well as to Amazon’s Fire TV platform and Chromecast.

Both CBS All Access and the NBC app also run on Android, iOS, Roku and a variety of other platforms.

In a statement, Rob Hayes, EVP, NBC Digital Entertainment, said: “We are very excited to launch our vast library of NBC programming on Xbox One and Apple TV. As we see viewership increasingly grow on connected devices and gaming consoles, we’re looking forward to expanding NBC across more platforms this year.”
