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, with over 40 options currently available in the US alone.
Google TV streaming services and apps — USA
- Amazon Prime Video
- Apple TV+
- Comedy Central
- DC Universe
- Disney NOW
- Epix Now
- Fox Now
- Google Play Movies (now Google TV)
- HBO Go
- HBO Max
- New: iQIYI
- Paramount+ (formerly CBS All Access)
- Pluto TV
- Showtime Anytime
- Sling TV
- The CW
- Tubi TV
- YouTube TV
This list of supported streaming services will likely expand over time, so we’ll keep an eye out for changes on Google TV and update this article accordingly.
Update 9/28: Over the past few months, Google TV has quietly rolled out integration with iQIYI. This newly added service primarily carries content from Asian markets, including dramas and anime. The service is available in most regions, and integrates with the “Your Services” page on Google TV, as well as showing up as a “Way to Watch” on supported shows.
This latest comes after Google TV has also added BET+, RaiPlay in Italy, and Pluto TV on the platform’s Live tab as a free streaming option. As of late 2022, Google TV has also more prominently shown off its Tubi TV integration, which is enabled by default.
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
- Pluto TV
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!
The lists below include only services specific to regions other than the US. Most of these regions also support services in the larger list above.
- ABC iView
- Foxtel Go

Sweden, Denmark, etc

- YouSee TV & Film

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 the Assistant to “open the Play Store.”
