Google TV streaming services and apps: the complete list
Perhaps the most useful aspect of the new Google TV platform is the ability to aggregate and organize content from various sources. Which ones, however? Here is a complete list of streaming services and apps supported by Google TV.
Of course, Google can pull content from its own services such as YouTube TV and also Google TV (formerly Play Movies). Beyond that, however, there are plenty of third-party services. Major players like Disney +, Hulu, and HBO Max are included, as well as NBC’s Peacock. The full list of services and apps supported by Google TV in the US can be found below.

Update 29/11: In a further extension of its support for more specialized streaming services, Google TV has added support for BET + account binding in recent weeks. The service is available under the “Your Services” menu on Google TV devices and can send recommendations while showing up in search directories.
Apps that support the Live tab of Google TV
Some services may also integrate with the “Live” tab of the Google TV home screen. Currently, however, only three apps support this feature.
- YouTube TV
- Slingshot television
Why isn’t Netflix on Google TV?
Netflix is ââa bit of an outlier on Google TV. The world’s largest streaming service, unfortunately, does not perform well with the platform. You can view Netflix content using the Google TV Directory Search feature, but Netflix prevents its original content from being used in the Watchlist feature. Netflix removed this support from the platform in late 2020, including support for account linking. This means that Google TV will not offer any recommendations for Netflix content. However, we have seen Netflix serving ads on Google TV in recent months.
The standoff over Netflix and Google TV support has been going on for about a year at this point and shows no signs of improving.
Google TV regional apps
Our list above shows the supported apps in the US, but Google TV supports the service in more regions as well. Below we have a list of fully supported apps in various other regions. Keep in mind, however, that because we are based in the United States, this section may not be complete. We are working on it!

Where are the Play Films 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 was not widely used. By integrating with your account-wide Google Watchlist and being placed right on your TV, Google TV has a much better chance of supporting this feature.
Meanwhile, the Play Store does not appear as an app on Google TV either. The only easy way to open it is to ask the assistant to “open the Play Store”.
