How to watch See without Apple TV – 7 steps
Before you proceed to the steps down below…
Reminder: Apple TV is different from Apple TV+.
That’s because Apple TV is a streaming device. So really, it’s similar to gadgets like:
- Amazon Firestick.
- Chromecast with Google TV.
On the other hand, Apple TV+ is a streaming application. And you can compare it to:
That said, the streaming service you need to use to watch See is Apple TV+.
And you don’t need to have an Apple TV device to access this app.
With that in mind, you can now proceed to…
#1: Prepare a compatible device
The easiest way to access Apple TV+ is to use Apple’s devices.
That said, if you have any of these gadgets:
- Apple TV.
You should use them to access the Apple TV+ and stream See.
“Can I download the Apple TV+ app on my Android phone?”
That’s because Apple TV+ is only limited to the mobile devices made by Apple.
But fret not.
You have other alternatives even if you don’t have any Apple products at home.
You can use Smart TVs from these brands to access Apple TV+:
And if you don’t have any of these…
You can also use these platforms to access the app:
- Fire TV.
- Google TV.
Or you may also use your PC to access the Apple TV+ browser.
Moreover, you can get this app on gaming platforms like:
So really, it’s not a problem if you don’t have Apple devices.
“Can I stream Apple TV+ on my cable network?”
Yes, you can. But only if you’re using the Comcast Xfinity cable network.
So if you’re using other satellite services…
You won’t be able to access the app on your cable.

Why is See only available on Apple TV?
See is only available on Apple TV+, not Apple TV.
Note: The former is a streaming service, while the latter is a streaming device. So don’t confuse the 2.
That’s because this series is part of Apple Originals. Or the compilation of shows and movies that Apple produced themselves.
With that said, the brand holds exclusive rights to See. So you can only watch it on Apple TV+.
Fun fact: Not releasing their own shows on other apps is 1 of Apple’s marketing strategies. Because exclusive series entice people into subscribing to their streaming service.
