TV Provider & Privacy

TV Provider is designed to protect your information and enable you to choose what you share.

The TV Provider feature allows your TV Provider and third-party apps to access and exchange information about your TV subscription account so you can sign in to your TV Provider account once and then automatically get access to shows, movies, and other content that are part of your TV Provider subscription from within third-party apps without having to sign in each time.

When you sign in to your TV Provider account, apps supporting your TV Provider account are enabled to use your account. After you sign in to your TV Provider account, other apps may ask you for access to your TV Provider account.

When you sign in to your TV Provider account, your device will store certain information about your TV subscription account on the device, such as the TV Provider name and your user display name. This information is used to enable the feature and to exchange subscription information between your TV Provider and third-party apps. Your TV Provider can share your subscription account information with any app you have enabled to verify your access to some of their subscription or content offerings. This information may include your subscription user ID, household ID, and account zip code, along with subscription package details.

After you sign in to your TV Provider account, we will use your subscription information to find third-party apps with content available through your subscription that are eligible to connect to the Apple TV app.

You may choose to disable the TV Provider feature at any time. To do so on iOS, go to Settings > TV Provider > Remove TV Provider. To do so on tvOS, go to Settings > Users and Accounts > TV Provider > Remove TV Provider. This will sign you out of your TV Provider account. You may also choose to disable apps on an individual basis.

By enabling the TV Provider feature, you are allowing your TV Provider and any third-party apps enabled by you to exchange and use your TV subscription account information. Their sharing and use of that information is subject to their terms, privacy policies, and practices. You should review the terms, privacy policies, and practices of your TV Provider and any such third-party apps to understand how they use and share your TV subscription account information and related information before sharing with them.

At all times, information collected by Apple will be treated in accordance with Apple’s Privacy Policy, which can be found at
