CBS All Access to drop support for Apple TV third-generation next month

YouTube recently announced that its application on the Apple TV third-generation, released in 2013, will soon be retired in favour of AirPlay. Now, the CBS All Access channel is being removed in March, the broadcaster confirmed.

CBS All Access will be rebranded to Paramount+ in the near future and marks a suitable time to drop support for older devices, the third-generation Apple TV included. Users have reported seeing an alert when logging into the CBS All Access app that says support will be dropped in March.

The new Paramount+ app will be available on the fourth and fith-generation Apple TV, the iPhone and the iPad. Content can still be streamed from the Paramount+ app on an iPhone or iPad via AirPlay.

Apple is expected to launch a new Apple TV model later this year with more storage, an improved Siri remote and A12 Bionic chip. Users looking to upgrade from the third-generation Apple TV should wait until the new model is released.
