The new Fox Now debuted on Apple TV and uses Apple’s Single Sign-On feature. Fox is promising to add more device compatibility in the future, including a desktop experience for web on Fox.com, legacy Apple TV, Xbox, Kindle Fire and Fire TV.

The launch of the new TVE app came after 21st Century Fox CEO James Murdoch promised earlier this year that big changes were coming for his company’s OTT apps.

“In the U.S., within the next few months, we will be rolling out a major overhaul of our streaming apps, which will deliver a step change for customers and future customers in quality, in discovery and in engagement,” Murdoch said, according to a Seeking Alpha transcript.
