Starting today, folks who own a Roku device will be able to stream content from Apple TV. To get started, head to the Roku Channel Store and grab the Apple TV app to begin accessing shows and movies.

After adding the Apple TV app to your Roku device, you’ll be able to sign in with your Apple ID to access your iTunes video library, 4K HD iTunes purchases, Apple TV Channels, Apple recommendations, and Apple TV+ originals. This news comes just two weeks prior to the November 1 debut of Apple TV+, where Apple will premiere exclusive shows and movies.

The app itself is free to download from the Roku Channel Store, but Apple TV+ will cost $4.99 a month after a seven-day free trial. Roku users will be able to subscribe to Apple TV+ directly through the Apple TV app on Roku. Apple TV+ includes access to more than 100,000 movies and shows, while Apple TV Channel subscriptions include premium networks such as Starz and HBO (a separate charge).

The Apple TV app will be available on most Roku devices, but some older models aren’t receiving support for the app. Here’s a full list of the Roku models that will receive the Apple TV app:
