Google TV streaming services and apps: the complete list
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 is a full 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 quite a few 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, with over 40 options currently available in the US alone.

- Amazon Prime Video

This list of supported streaming services will likely grow over time, so we’ll keep an eye out for changes to Google TV and update this article accordingly.
September 28 update: Over the past few months, Google TV has been quietly rolling out integration with iQIYI. This newly added service primarily streams 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 appears as a “Way to Watch” on supported shows.
This latest comes after Google TV also added BET+, RaiPlay in Italy and Pluto TV to the platform’s Live tab as a free streaming option. At the end of 2022, Google TV also highlighted its Tubi TV integration, which is enabled by default.
Apps that support the Google TV Live tab
Some services may also integrate with the “Live” tab on the Google TV home screen. Currently, however, only three apps support this feature.
- YouTube television
- TV Sling
- Pluto TV
Why is Netflix not on Google TV?
Netflix is a bit of an outlier on Google TV. The biggest streaming service in the world, unfortunately, doesn’t play well with the platform. You can view Netflix content using Google TV’s search directory function, but Netflix restricts its original content from being used in the watchlist function. Netflix removed this platform support at the end of 2020, including account linking support. This means that Google TV will not offer recommendations for Netflix content. However, we’ve seen Netflix run ads on Google TV for the past few months.
The stalemate 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 supported apps in the US, but Google TV supports the service in other regions as well. Below we have a list of fully supported apps in various other regions. Keep in mind, however, that as we are based in the United States, this section may not be complete. We are working on it!
The lists below only include services specific to regions other than the United States. Most of these regions also support the services in the longer list above.

Where is the Play Movies app and Play Store on Google TV?
The Google Play Movies & TV app that this new platform replaces had a similar function to Google TV in finding content on a variety of different services, but it wasn’t widely used. By integrating with your account’s Google Watchlist and being placed directly on your TV, Google TV has a much better chance of supporting this feature.
Meanwhile, the Play Store also does not appear as an app on Google TV. The only easy way to open it is to ask the wizard to “open the Play Store”.
