What’s new for Apple TV, February 21st, 2019
It’s a solid week for new Apple TV apps, especially if you’re into puzzle/arcade gaming or exercise. We’ve also got an Apple TV version of Vidgo, but perhaps the most intriguing video content comes from Belgium’s urban explorers, the Bros of Decay.
This week’s updates will help you become a better Amazon shopper and Jeopardy! player, and wouldn’t you like to try out a most peculiar game?
