    No, I don’t have it on my devices. It’s not available yet in my country.

    Here’s Apple’s description:

    In countries where it’s available, it replaces the Video app in iOS 11. All your previously downloaded content is still available along with the new features that come with the new app. It bears more than a passing resemblance to the current appearance of the Music app and you can purchase or rent iTunes content without leaving the app. I don’t own an Apple TV so I have no experience on how it works with the latest Apple TV units.

    Mostly it syncs with your Apple TV content; both the Watch Now and the Library sections.

    Buy or subscribe to something on one, it shows up in the TV app on the other (Apple TV also has a TV app). I believe you can start watching something on one, and switch to the other without losing your place. Having never done this I’m not sure.
