The third-generation Apple TV is starting to lose support from third-party developers, it seems. With a rebranded streaming service on the way, CBS All Access is next up on the cancellation list.
As first spotted today by MacRumors, the streaming service CBS All Access is shuttering its app for the third-generation Apple TV. The publication saw the pop-up that indicates the service will shut down support as of March 4, 2021. That’s in a little less than a month. The pop-up says the app will no longer be available on the set-top box, as it transitions to Paramount+ (on the same date).
The warning tells the user that they can watch Paramount+, beginning March 4, on an Apple TV HD, the Apple TV 4K, the iPhone, or the iPad. It also notes that, with AirPlay streaming, they can watch Paramount+ on the set-top box if they stream it from their iPhone or iPad. The content can also be streamed to a supported smart TV, of course.
You can see the pop-up warning in the image just above.
If this sounds familiar, it’s because we heard the same thing about the official YouTube app not too long ago. The third-generation Apple TV is losing support for that app in the near future as well. To watch YouTube via a third-generation Apple TV, you’ll need to rely on AirPlay as well. That support ends in March as well.
