At the moment Apple's TV app basically consolidates the various streaming services into a single app and it's more about the convenience than anything, where users can just navigate the various services within a single app as opposed to switching apps.
With the move, Apple plans to begin selling subscriptions to certain video services - like HBO Go and Netflix - from its TV client, rather than asking users to subscribe to them through applications individually downloaded from the App Store. It will also boost the company's growing services business.
