Perhaps the most useful thing about the new Google TV platform is the ability to aggregate and organize content from a variety of different sources. Which ones, though? Here’s a full list of streaming services and apps that Google TV supports.

Of course, Google can pull content from its own services such as YouTube TV and also Google TV (formerly Play Movies). Beyond that, however, are quite a few third-party services. Major players like Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max are included, and NBC’s Peacock. The full list of services and apps supported by Google TV in the United States can be found below.

Update 11/29: In a further expansion of its support for more niche streaming services, Google TV added support for BET+ account linking in recent weeks. The service is available within the “Your Services” menu on Google TV devices and can send recommendations along with showing up in search directories.


Apps that support Google TV’s Live tab

Some services, too, can integrate with the “Live” tab on the Google TV homescreen. Currently, though, there are only three apps that support this functionality.

  • YouTube TV
  • Sling TV
  • Philo

Why isn’t Netflix on Google TV?

Netflix is a bit of an outlier on Google TV. The biggest streaming service in the world, unfortunately, doesn’t play nice with the platform. You can see Netflix content using Google TV’s directory lookup feature, but Netflix blocks its original content from being used in the watchlist feature. Netflix ripped this support from the platform in late 2020, including support for account linking. That means that Google TV won’t offer any recommendations for Netflix content. However, we have seen Netflix run ads on Google TV in recent months.

The stalemate on Netflix and Google TV support has been ongoing for roughly a year at this point, and shows no signs of getting better.

Regional Google TV apps

Our list above shows apps that are supported in the United States, but Google TV supports service in more regions, too. Below, we have a list of apps that are fully supported in various other regions. Keep in mind, though, that as we are based in the US, this section may not be complete. We’re working on it!

Where is the Play Movies app and the Play Store on Google TV?

The Google Play Movies & TV app that this new platform replaces had a similar function to Google TV by finding content on a variety of different services, but it wasn’t very widely used. By integrating with your account-wide Google watchlist and being placed directly on your TV, Google TV has a much better chance to support this function.

Meanwhile, the Play Store also doesn’t show up as an app on Google TV either. The only easy way to open it is to ask Assistant to “open the Play Store.”
