VRV now has Stargate SVOD and is adding Apple TV support

(VRV)

Tucked inside an announcement about MGM SVOD Stargate Command coming to VRV, the aggregation site also announced that its service now works on Apple TV.

"We are honored to partner with MGM to bring Stargate, one the most beloved sci-fi franchises of all-time, to VRV,” said Eric Berman, head of business development and partnerships, in a statement. “Together, we can now offer the fandom access to their favorite content across mobile and living room devices through the VRV app, which as of today, is now available on Apple TV."

VRV is available on the web, iOS and Android devices as well as Apple TV, Android TV, Fire TV, Xbox One, PS4, Chromecast and newer Roku devices. Along with the newly expanded slate of compatible devices, VRV Select, the platform’s curated house channel, will now offer Stargate Command to users in the U.S. Through the VRV partnership, fans will get Stargate Command All-Access video content, including Stargate Origins. But new episodes of Stargate Origins won’t show up on VRV any earlier than 30 days after they first premiere on Stargate Command.
