The new Apple TV app lets you watch ‘Game of Thrones’ even if you don’t have an internet connection. The Channels feature in the redesigned Apple TV app is cool because it lets you sign up for services like HBO without using another app, and it also lets you download movies and TV episodes for offline viewing on your iPhone or iPad.
This has long been a feature on dedicate apps for services such as Showtime and Stars, but it’s remarkable in this case because HBO has never allowed it for HBO Go or HBO Now.
The timing couldn’t be better. Apple dropped the new feature just in time for the series finale of Game of Thrones, which means you can use the Apple TV app to catch up on episodes while you’re on train commute rides with spotty connections or on long flights.
